Amsterdam

Amsterdam is the Netherlands’ capital. Amsterdam's name derives from Amstelredamme, indicative of the city's origin around a dam in the river Amstel. It is known for its artistic heritage, elaborate canal system and narrow houses with gabled facades, legacies of the city’s 17th-century Golden Age. As the commercial capital of the Netherlands and one of the top financial centres in Europe, Amsterdam is considered an alpha world city and it was once the leading centre for finance and diamondsIts Museum District houses the Van Gogh Museum, works by Rembrandt and Vermeer at the Rijksmuseum, and modern art at the Stedelijk. Cycling is key to the city’s character, and there are numerous bike paths.
