Amsterdam is one of the greatest small cities in the world. The small scale of the buildings and the intimacy of the streets, canals and squares create an atmosphere that visitors find unique.
The city has the highest museum density in the world and is home to cultural highlights, such as the Van Gogh Museum, Anne Frank House, Hermitage Amsterdam and the Rijksmuseum with Rembrandt’s world-famous Nightwatch. Other well known places of interest in Amsterdam are the Palace on the Dam, the Artis Zoo, Jewish Historical Museum and the Rembrandt House.
It has all the advantages of a big city; culture, nightlife, international restaurants and good transport, but has a quiet feel largely thanks to its extensive canals.
The city is virtually barrier-free with the accessibility of public buildings, transport and canal boats taken very seriously.
