Dating back to the 14th century, the tranquil courtyard of the Begijnhof is surrounded by the bustle of Kalverstraat, Spui and the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal. The original facades were replaced in the 17th and 18th century, but 18 of the houses still have gothic wooden frames—one of which is still visible. The Begijnhofkapel, with its paintings of the Miracle of Amsterdam, and the English Church remind visitors of the courtyard’s religious foundations.




Another reason to visit the Dutch capital is to enjoy a boat ride on the canals of Amsterdam, it is a different way of seeing and admiring the bridges, canals, houses and facades that characterize the city. To be even more enjoyable the private mini-cruise can be done with a good dinner and live music.

For those who love the art of gastronomy, Amsterdam also has its culinary side and eating or drinking becomes a great delight, especially salmon, herrings, cheeses and beer are worth the visit to one of their restaurants to taste them.

A bike ride through the city is a great opportunity to enjoy Amsterdam outdoors. It is probably from the cities where the bicycle is most used as a means of transport, only that one must be careful to walk along the corresponding lanes and try not to hinder the circulation.

The great lung of Amsterdam, Vondelpark: spend a few hours in this majestic park is the best you can do when visiting the city, especially in the summer, walking on foot or on a bike ride or just lie on the lawn, It will be really relaxing and fun.
