Amsterdam’s surrounding countryside is a delightful area filled with farms, fishing villages, and windmills. And what better way to explore than on the Dutch’s favorite mode of transport – a bike.

Visit The Museums

Every city in the world has at least one historically significant museum, but Amsterdam has two.
If you’re an art lover, you should not miss the chance to visit the Van Gogh museum. Widely regarded – in modern times – as one of the finest painters who ever lived, Van Gogh’s work takes a surreal approach to color and composition to show the world through a previously unexplored lens. Though he was never appreciated in his time, his paintings have since inspired thousands of artists to find their way of expressing the creative spirit.
Alternatively, if you’re interested in modern history, you may want to stop by the Anne Frank Museum. Although the story of Anne Frank is a sad and tragic one, her diaries nonetheless illuminate the strength of the human spirit in times of crisis and give us a glimpse into the lives of those who suffered under the Nazi regime.
Ultimately, what both of these museums have in common is the chance to see the past through the eyes of someone who lived it. So if what you need is a quiet day to get a break from the non-stop ADE atmosphere, then they’re the perfect place for quiet contemplation.

Go For A Meal And A Drink

Last but certainly not least, you should take the opportunity to grab a meal and a drink in one of Amsterdam’s many fantastic restaurants. As an international hot spot, the Dutch capital offers all kinds of fantastic food from around the world, so whether you fancy Mexican, Indian, Italian, or Chinese, you’ll be able guaranteed to find a fantastic feast to fill your stomach.
Amsterdam is a beautiful, vibrant city with so much to do and see that there’s no way we could ever cover it all. So whether you’re heading there for ADE or just planning a quick getaway with your friends, you’ll surely have an amazing time.
