    It might be a little obvious, but the Anne Frank Museum is really just inspiring. The house is so interesting in itself. You should also try to go to some flower markets whilst you're there. over 6 years ago

    I recommend you take the free walkin tour. It is a 4 hr through tour of the city. The must see museums are: Anne Frank's Van Gogh's, Rijks and Rembrandt's house. You could also check out Let's Plan It Amsterdam bike trips, coffeeshop and red light tours. over 6 years ago

    The red light district and the Heineken Brewery. The damrak is quite pretty, and has a great little souvenir shop in the corner of it, with a giant clog outside - great photo opportunity ;)
    For the experience, maybe have a look in a coffee shop and/or smart shop. You certainly do't have to buy anything, but its a bit of an eye-opener to check it out.
    A canal boat tour is a great idea, as is the Anne Frank museum. It seems everyone goes to the Van Gogh museum, but i have never been there myself.
    I'd recommend that you just wander and get lost if you have the time. I always find something new, weird and wonderful each time I go.
    The dutch are known for making really great hot chips. My favourite is Patat Oorlog (hot chips served with mayonaise and peanut satay sauce..depends where you buy but it also sometimes has a sprinkling of finely chopped onions). Also check out a FEBO fast food place..its like a fast food vending machine..pretty random!
    Everyone in Amsterdam speaks English (its a bit disappointing, but you rarely hear Dutch spoken in Amsterdam) so you will have no trouble asking for information from the locals. over 6 years ago
