1-CENTRAL STATION

 The main train station in Amsterdam is called Centraal Station. This is the starting point for many of the local tram, bus or metro services. Day-trips by coach to other parts of the Netherlands can be booked here. The main Tourist Information office is in a building in front of the station.

2-CANAL TOUR

A good way to see Amsterdam is to take a boat cruise around the canals. Boats run both during the day and evening. The most popular boarding places are located in the area in front of and Centraal Station.

3-SCHREIERSTOREN / ST NIKOLA ASKERK

Amsterdam has been a major trading port for hundreds of years. Sailors leaving the port would often be away for many months before returning, assuming that they could come back safely. One of the last buildings which they could see before leaving is called the Schreierstoren (crying tower): the partners of the sailors would gather here and cry as their loved ones went out to sea. The church nearby is called St Nikolaaskerk - it is dedicated to Saint Nicholas, who is the patron saint of travelers.

4-Cat Boat

In 1966 a lady called Henriette Van Weelde found a family of stray cats sheltering near her house and decided to take them in and look after them. More homeless cats soon joined them, and she became known as the "cat lady" of Amsterdam. People started to bring more stray or unwanted cats to her, but soon there was not enough space in her home. She decided to buy a houseboat and to use this as a place where these cats could be looked after, and where people could come if they wanted to give a home to one of them. Although the founder has died, local volunteers continue to look after cats here.

The cat boat (de Poezenboot) is moored in front of house number 40 on the Singel canal. It is usually open to visitors from 1pm-3pm (not on Wednesdays). Donations are welcomed to help the work of the cat boat to continue.

5-Amsterdam

  • Tourist Amsterdam is a compact area that includes scenic canals, world class art museums, great shopping, the city's famed "Red Light District", and trendy restaurants and bars. When in Amsterdam be sure to visit the Anne Frank Huis,Van Gogh Museum and the Riijksmuseum.
    • If you have a taste for Falafel, Amsterdam has some of the best this side of the Middle East.
    • One specific Amsterdam caution: the residents of the city commute on bicycles and do not yield the right of way to pedestrians.
      • stepping into the bicycle lane without looking can be dangerous.

6-Delft

Delft is one of the best-preserved, "historic" towns in the Netherlands. It is known for its canals, walkways, and Delft Pottery. Most visitors spend time at the Koninlijke Porceleyne Fles (the Royal Dutch Delftware Factory).The Markt features many shops selling pottery of various quality (beware of imitations) and a number of good restaurants.

  • See both the Oude Kerk (Old Church) and Nieuwe Kerk (with the tomb of William of Orange). The city's best museum is the Stedelijk Museum Het Prinsenof (Municipal Museum Het Prinsenof) that features a fine collection of Dutch decorative arts.
  • You will also find a Vermeer Trail, named after the famous artist who was born and painted in Delft

7-Rotterdam

One of Europe's major ports, Rotterdam is a working city that has been rebuilt since the devastation of World War II. The boat tour of the harbor is popular but the real draw is the Netherlands' best art museum, the Boymans van Beuningen Museum, in the Museumpark section of the city.

8-Arnhem

Arnhem is the city in the book and movie "a Bridge Too Far", a World War II battle for a bridge crossing the Rhine between the Netherlands and Germany. In addition, Arnhem features the Open Air Museum (Openlucht) which replicates how the Dutch lived, farmed and built homes and windmills in the past.
