The Netherlands - Amsterdam (Chapter)
This is the Amsterdam chapter from Lonely Planet's The Netherlands guidebook.
Amsterdam works its fairy-tale magic in many ways: via the gabled Golden Age buildings, the glinting boat-filled canals, and especially the cosy, centuries-old brown cafes, where candles burn low and beers froth high. Art admirers will be hard-pressed to ogle a more masterpiece-packed city. And hedonists? Amsterdam's risqué side beckons, from the Red Light District windows to the cannabis-selling coffeeshops.
- Admire the vivid swirls of a tortured genius at the Van Gogh Museum
- Visit the Golden Age painter's inner sanctum at Museum het Rembrandthuis or plunge into the revamped Rijksmuseum and its trove of Vermeers, Rembrandts and other national riches
- Feel gezelligheid (a cosy sense of wellbeing) in the lanes and cafes of the Jordaan
