Things to do

-Architecture. Amsterdam is a UNESCO listed city, with one of the largest old centres on the continent. There are thousands of impressive old buildings alongside creative feats of civil engineering. For a glimpse of the city’s medieval past, see the wooden buildings at Begijnhof and Zeedijk. The Canal Ring of course is astounding, with beautiful waterfront buildings dating to the Netherlands’ Golden Age.

-Vondelpark. In the summer there’s possibly no better place in the city to take a picnic than this park, set in South Amsterdam. It’s the largest expanse of greenery, and on sunny days is a fun and friendly spot to while away an afternoon. There’s some interesting public art here, including a piece by Picasso, and there are plenty of free activities for children and adults in spring and summer.

-Museums. This part of Amsterdam comprises the Museum Quarter, where many of the world’s best cultural attractions can be found. You can learn about the history of the Dutch relationship with diamonds at the Diamond Museum, or see the Old Masters like Vermeer and Rembrandt at the prestigious Rijksmuseum. Another of the standouts is the Van Gogh Museum, where you can see world’s largest collection of the artist’s work.

-Canal tours. You can’t visit Amsterdam without taking a trip on the canals, simply because it’s a fabulous way to enjoy the city. There are many ways of doing this – you could rent an environmentally friendly electric boat for your own personal tour, or simply hop on and off the classic Canal Bus. Three-hour-long dinner cruises are also available, offering a memorable cruise through the city at night.

-Cuisine. Amsterdam’s cosmopolitan character is evident in the wide spectrum of cuisines available. Highly recommended is Indonesian food, especially the rijsttafel – literally “rice table” – which is a selection of small dishes involving satay, egg rolls, vegetables and fruit, all served with rice. For something classically Dutch, see what you make of raw herring, which is in season from May to July.

Weather in South Amsterdam

Amsterdam has an Oceanic climate, and this brings mild and relatively damp weather for most of the year. If you visit your holiday apartment in South Amsterdam in the summer months then there’s moderately warm weather in store, with highs that often push the mid-20s. The period from April to August is also the sunniest of the year. Winters on the other hand are cool, but rarely bitter. Frosts are surprisingly unusual because the city is surrounded on three sides by water.

Travel to South Amsterdam

Holiday rentals in South Amsterdam are especially convenient to Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport (AMS), which lies to the southwest of the city. It serves as a hub for a number of important airlines, including KLM and Delta, and ranks as the fourth busiest airport in Europe. There are plenty of routes and airlines linking Amsterdam with the UK, flying from more than 20 airports across the country. Once you arrive you can catch a train, taxi or bus to South Amsterdam, and if you’re driving it’s just a short trip along the A4.

                                                              Terrific Houseboat stay in Amsterdam

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              Wake up in the morning to see the city wake up on the Amstel river. The houseboat is very clean, bright and well equipped. It is a 7min walk to tram, a 20 minute walk to Rijks museum, 30 min walk to Anne Frank museum at center of town. Though street noise is heard inside the houseboat, it is low and not loud. The interior is roomier than expected. A 6ft tall person can stand without hitting ceiling. The four of us slept very comfortably in the two double beds. The area is safe to walk anytime of day, just stay off the well marked bike path. The hosts are attentive and of obviously proud of Amsterdam. They are professional and live nearby for any needs or concerns. The hosts are responsive to email so made pre-booking and arrival easy. We had a late night flight arrival and they met us without any problem or extra fee. The houseboat is larger than other rentals in the city. The kitchen is well equipped with numerous dishes, large stove, a refrigerator and microwave. There are heaters if needed during cold months. The pictures show it as described. Across the street is a coffee shop and a block away is CTaste, a unique dark dining restaurant. Great experience, well priced vs hotel and easy to walk to city centre.

                                                              A perfect base for exploring a great city

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              We couldn't have picked a more perfect base for our trip to Amsterdam. The apartment is based at the edge of the museum district in a really nice neighbourhood with lots of great restaurants and bars nearby. Trams go from the end of the road but we enjoyed exploring the city on foot and made the most of the many museums, galleries and attractions. The apartment is just around the corner from the Albert Cuyp Market, which has lots of lovely fresh food on offer and there are a few decent supermarkets nearby. We loved the roof terrace but didn't get to enjoy it much because of the drizzly, cold weather! It has great views across the city and would be perfect on a summer evening if you're brave enough to tackle the stairs up (people weren't lying when they said steps in Amsterdam are steep and narrow!). The facilities in the apartment are spot on - the kitchen has enough equipment to prepare a decent dinner and the bedroom and lounge are really cosy. The bed is like sinking into a giant marshmallow! Everything was as described and Marieke gave us all of the information we needed to find it before we arrived. The facilities are clean and well looked after, and the free wi-fi was well used! Make the most of Marieke's food recommendations - they were all brilliant. We especially loved eating at Thrill Grill and Café Loetje (the steak in gravy is to die for), and Venster 33 was nice for drinks. If you want to be away from the bustle and brashness of Central, this place is amazing - there are great facilities on the doorstep and everything else is a tram ride or stroll away. I only wish we had a few extra days for more delicious food and local beer!
