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.

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.

It was ideally situated for easy access to public transport. There was a supermarket nearby. The owner was really friendly and told us to get in touch at any time if we had any questions or concerns what more could you wish for? Recommended.

It was clean, had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, and the location couldn't be better. The apartment is central enough to walk everywhere, yet at night it was very quiet and peaceful. Emilee was a wonderful hostess-she helped arrange a pick up for us from the airport which was very helpful and less expensive than a taxi. She also greeted us at the apartment and was very responsive to all our questions and requests for advice. We would definitely stay there again.

We met Lilian and she was very kind and welcoming. She helped us out through our stay and even booked us a taxi for the airport. We kept in contact through text message and were not worried to ask any questions. The house was amazing, very clean and comfortable and looked even better than in the pictures. There was plenty of room for the six of us and everything we needed was in the house. We stayed for three nights but it would definitely be good for a longer stay also. There is a supermarket 5 minutes away which was very handy for getting food and beside the supermarket was the train station, where we got the train straight to the city centre where we explored and visited all the famous attractions. This was a very smooth and straight forward journey. We had the comfort of being able to come back to the house at whatever time we wanted as there was also a night bus. I recommend this place as everything about it was perfect, from the well-maintained clean property, to the very kind and welcoming hosts. We are all very happy with our experience of Amsterdam and would love to come back again in the future.
