About Amsterdam

Amsterdam, accessible and compact

The city of Amsterdam is a national and international junction. The main airport, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, is considered one of the best in the world and is just 20 minutes from the city centre. Amsterdam’s compact city centre makes for outstanding public transport service and means that most facilities and sights are within walking distance of each other. Amsterdam’s network of canals also offers the unique opportunity to transport your delegates on the water.

Amsterdam historic heart

Amsterdam was founded in the Middle Ages near a dam on the Amstel River. The city truly blossomed in the early 17th century, when it became the world’s largest centre for trade and art. The historic heart of the city, known as the Grachtengordel (canal ring), has remained beautifully intact to this day. But this area is not just a preserved open-air museum; it is the functional and friendly heart of the city, where locals and visitors alike create a vibrant energy. 

Amsterdam outstanding culture

The Netherlands’ capital city has been a centre of creativity and culture for centuries. Works of the 17th-century Dutch Masters Rembrandt and Vermeer grace the walls of the Rijksmuseum. The Van Gogh Museum houses the world’s largest collection of the artist’s masterpieces. The Stedelijk Museum is a world-renowned bastion of modern and contemporary art. Other cultural treasures include Anne Frank’s House, where the young Jewish girl hid from Nazis and penned her now-famous diary. The baroque Royal Palace on Dam Square, the Rembrandt House and the newly expanded Hermitage Amsterdam are just a few more of Amsterdam’s trove of offerings, sure to satisfy the cultural palate of the most discerning visitor.

Amsterdam superb surroundings

Many people think of the Netherlands as the land of tulips and windmills. In just 15 minutes from the centre of Amsterdam you can experience these idyllic scenes. The fishing villages of Marken and Volendam are open-air museums with an unrivalled display of authentic Dutch houses and windmills. Springtime visitors can tour the spectacular bulb fields or take in millions of blooming flowers at the world’s most photographed location: the Keukenhof.
