Top 5 things to see on your walking tour of Amsterdam

Amsterdam has a few magnificent sights, but mostly you can expect a charismatic cityscape, eccentric shopping, and a whole load of attractions unlike anything else! Here are five of its biggest draws.

  • Dam Square

    1. Dam Square

    Not only the most important square in the city, but the whole country! Here you'll see the Royal Palace, National Monument, and 15th century Nieuwe Kerk, New Church.

  • Red Light District

    2. Red Light District

    First time in Amsterdam? You might be surprised to find the Red Light District is actually quite civilized! Go during the day to check out historic buildings and quirky shops.

  • Anne Frank Museum

    3. Anne Frank Museum

    There's little to see from outside but huge queues, so if you want to learn about the famous diarist's attempts to evade the Nazis, book a tour with skip-the-line access!

  • Museum Square

    4. Museum Square

    Museumplein boasts three of the best art museums in Europe: the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk, and the Van Gogh Museum. They're worth seeing even if you don't enter any of them!

  • Vondelpark

    5. Vondelpark

    Around the corner from Museumplein is one of Amsterdam's most beloved parks. If it's a sunny day, push your aching feet just a little further to end your walking tour here.

Planning Your Visit

  • How hard is it?

    Amsterdam is small and flat, but the labyrinthine layout of the city's canals and narrow streets mean even the shortest of walking tours will last at least two hours (although they're unlikely to last more than three). That said, you'd probably end up walking a lot longer trying to navigate the streets without an expert. The Dutch capital is an easy city to get lost in!

  • How do the free tours work?

    If you're visiting Amsterdam on the cheap then you might choose to opt for a free walking tour. If so, remember your guide does this for a living so bring some cash in order to pay what you think it was worth at the end. Otherwise, be prepared to shuffle away sheepishly!

My family and I had an enjoyable evening with Jon our guide. He was very informative and funny at the same time. Kept up engaged throughout the tour. Would highly recommend both the tour and guide to any one looking to book and are not sure.
