Things to see and do in Amsterdam and nearby:
Amsterdam with its Amstel River is a great blend of old and new Europe. It is a largely 17th-century city with a dense population but with much charm. For art lovers, the favorite sites are the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. The former has Rembrandt’s most famous work, the Nightwatch. You may find yourself having to stand on tiptoes to view it over the heads of competing tourists! However, it is well worth it! The Van Gogh Museum is another favorite. (Please do remember to pronounce the “G” as an “h”!). Although his works are famously exhibited worldwide, it is important to see where it all began in the Netherlands. For present day, there is also the Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art.
In the city center, the focal point is the Dam Square. That was the place I started my independent tour of Amsterdam. You will see there the royal palace inhabited more recently by the new sovereign Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima. Prominent is the historic Nieuwekerk. Despite its name as the new church, this is the site of the “inauguration” or accession of each new Dutch monarch.
Biking is big in the Netherland. For a more active tour, rent a bike to see the city and nearby environs. You may be pleased to find certain of the windmills serve beer! Outside the city (no refreshments), Kinderdijk has 19 windmills awaiting your selfies! This was one of my favorites.
I highly recommend a canal tour by boat. It gives a completely different view of the city. Most captivating for me? The variety of roof lines and styles. This is a UNESCO protected zone for the canals so much of the past has been well-preserved.
I was personally pleased to see like most of Europe, Amsterdam, was a pet-friendly environment. Although traveling dogless, I found a new friend in a local pub. When I went to order a carryout sandwich for lunch, I was startled. As I waited, I went to sit on a bench. I quickly realized I was about to sit on top of a Great Dane that had already claimed the spot!
Amsterdam has a well-deserved reputation as a lively European solo vacation destination. It is both a great standalone trip and a way to connect throughout the region. I took a car and several ferries to Belgium. Ghent and Bruges offered really quaint views of Medieval Flanders.
The Bij Tijn Op de Grachts Bed and Breakfast:
The Bij Tijn Op de Grachts Bed and Breakfast has a really challenging name for those of us who don’t speak Dutch. I won’t even attempt to pronounce its name. However, the good news is that the Bij Tijn Op de Grachts B&B is right in the center of Amsterdam. Located on the Prinsengracht Canal, it is known for great pricing. It is very conveniently situated near shopping and public transportation. It is also only a few steps from the Anne Frank Museum and Royal Palace. Ask for a room with a French balcony overlooking the canal. While set in a charming 17th century Dutch house, you will feel right at home in these spacious rooms with modern conveniences from a private bath to free WIFI.
