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.

There is a newly renovated bathroom with a good shower, spacious living area and a spacious bedroom with plenty of cupboard space and very comfortable bed. There is a modern kitchen with all necessaryequipment. Although by a main road, the house is quiet. BBC1 and BBC2 are available. Internet was good. The owner has two Dutch style bicycles which we used to cycle to Amsterdam (about 30 mins and very safe), and into the extensive woods behind the property where there are lakes and places of interest to see. Bus stops are a few metres away. The owner left useful information for local shops, buses etc. (There's an Aldi 10 mins walk away), and supplied some food basics, which was a nice touch. All queries were quickly responded to.
