Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands. It is known for it’s elaborate canal system and narrow homes with gabled facades, reminiscent of the 17th-century Golden Age. It is home to the Van Gogh Museum, with works by Rembrandt and Vermeer at the Rijksmuseum, and modern art at the Stedelijk. You won’t want to miss Anne Frank’s huis. The preferred mode of transport is the bicycle, which dates back to the 19th century. Cycling is key to the city’s character. If you care for libations, stop by Porem, ask for Remco, and drink whatever he pours.
