What to do in Amsterdam

Are you ready to explore Amsterdam?
Here are some of the best things to do in Amsterdam for two days:

Visit to the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum.

These are Amsterdam’s most popular museums, so expect them to get crowded, especially at midday. By starting here first, you get to enjoy at least one of the museums without huge crowds

Take a stroll along the canals and parks.

Amsterdam is known for its many iconic canals and historical canal houses.
A canal cruise is an absolute must-do in Amsterdam, as it’s best seen from the water.

For lunch, head over to Pancake Bakery for an over-the-top breakfast experience. This popular restaurant serves up some of the best pancakes in town.

Visit the Anne Frank House.

Without a doubt, a visit to Amsterdam would not be complete without a visit to the Anne Frank House.
End your day with a visit to Museum Ons’Lieve Heer op Solder.
This museum is located in a 17th-century canal house and features an entire church hidden in its attic.


For the second day

Breakfast at The Pancake Bakery

After breakfast, head over to Vondelpark.
This park is one of Amsterdam’s most famous parks and is perfect for a relaxing stroll or picnic.

Where to eat in Amsterdam

You’re going to a bachata festival in Amsterdam and you’re on a tight budget. You’ve danced all night and now you’re hungry.

You want to try local and international food, but you don’t want to break the bank. Here are some options for you:

Skek

Skek is a student-run restaurant and bar near Amsterdam’s Red Light District that fuses traditional Dutch food with all the newest eating trends.

They host live-music nights too, which really adds to Skek’s already stellar atmosphere.

If there’s one group who appreciates a good bargain, it’s students, and Skek doesn’t disappoint, with dishes costing around €13 euros on average.

Dumplings

Dumplings is an epic food stall on the corner of Westerpark that dishes out traditional wallet-friendly snacks that have been eaten on the streets of Beijing for centuries.

The menu at Dumplings encompasses Chinese crepes made with mung beans, noodles, egg and spring onions, doused in soy sauce with optional roasted pork or duck.

On top of that they serve a great variety of pork and vegetable dumplings, bao buns, spring rolls and noodle plates that will fill your tum for as little as €6.50.

Thrill Grill

Thrill Grill is perfect for anyone who wants a charcoal-grilled gourmet burger in Amsterdam for a reasonable price.

Most of the burgers are just over €10, and all the ingredients are locally sourced and natural: pure Dutch beef, potatoes from a local farmer and luscious Dutch gouda cheese – even their toasted burger buns are organic.

There are burgers for all tastes, but our top picks are the Peruvian beef thriller, the vegan Beyond burger and Asian chicken.
