If you have only one day, start by taking a canal boat cruise to get a general overview of the city of Amsterdam. Most tours last about 90 minutes and are an excellent way to see many of Amsterdam’s prime sights. You can catch the boats in front of Central Station and at a number of other locations including the Rokin canal near Squi Square, and along the Leidsekade at the entrance to Vondelpark.

After the cruise, take a walk along the historic canal ring to soak up the atmosphere and architecture of Amsterdam’s Golden Age. Stop along the way to grab a bite at one of the many Dutch styled Brown Cafés. For a taste of Holland, order the bitterballen as an appetizer – deep fried croquettes filled with beef and flour. Alternatively, grab some French fries with mayonnaise on the street or (if you’re feeling brave) a herring and onion sandwich from one of the local street vendors.

Next, make your way to Museumplain (you can get there by tram) to visit the Van Gogh Museum. The Rijksmuseum is also nearby if you’re more inclined to the old masters than to the kaleidoscopic impressionism of Van Gogh!

When you get hungry for dinner, head to Chinatown near the Nieuwmarkt. Eat at one of the Thai or Indonesian Restaurants in the area that have become a local favorite and a city specialty. After dinner, wander through the Red Light District in the early evening to experience the electric atmosphere of Europe’s most notorious neighborhood.

And make sure you plan your next visit to fascinating Amsterdam! Lovely colours in the Springtime!
