Amsterdam is a city of fantastic surprises, a place crammed with sights and activities that seem to bear not the slightest resemblance to the picture of tulips, cheese, and wooden shoes that most visitors expect to find. You'll enjoy much more than just dinner at Amsterdam-area restaurants. Leidseplein is the best dining area in Amsterdam city and incredibly beautiful. Here the locals and tourist come to drink beer and have coffee on the side walk cafes that line this square.

The Singel, Prinsengracht, Herengracht and Keizergracht canals wind their way past the sights, so in many ways the canal boats give you the best introduction to the city. They're cheap during the day. Amsterdam has amazing restaurants, sidewalk cafes, coffee shops and pubs along the canals.

Amsterdam sidewalk cafes

This activity in the evening (which may also be practiced during the day) is a major activity in Amsterdam and a cheap and convenient, too. No sidewalk will not ask you one more cup of coffee, you are allowed to spend the evening together, as the passing parade in Amsterdam, the two major attractions: the Rembrandtplein and the Leidseplein clock.

Of the two, has the Rembrandtplein a little more activity, and here at sidewalk cafes with their table areas are aligned roughly stable on both sides of the square. On the Leidseplein, the large outdoor cafes which are operated by the American Hotel and modern cafe, but the three most exciting here Hoopman the cellar, Reynders coffee, and coffee Eylders, all three on Leidsedwarsstraat Korte, on the Leidseplein, nearby (but on another small square of) the opera. Among them, the Café Coffee Reynders outstanding student in Amsterdam, the condescension widely Amsterdam version of the Beatnik, with its strikingly beautiful, companion pony tail. Of course, there is no minimum order, no admission to sit for you and to meet people all evening. Eylders Coffee is a little more polite version of Reynders and Hoopman Bodega is a stylish bar a little, sponsored by some elderly. During the winter, continue to make all three areas at full speed, but without the tables on the sidewalk.

Budget hotels in Amsterdam - Canals tour

The budget hotels in Amsterdam are like no other on earth. Located primarily in canal houses built 17th and 18th centuries they ride, not. If these buildings are narrow staircases are like a building manager thin edges that require a ramp support. Outside each house, you will see a beam of iron pulley that moves with the roof. For transporting heavy furniture and other items that simply can not be transported up the steep stairs?

But do not let the situation get discouraged stairs, older tourists are always placed on the ground or lower floors, and younger or stronger will focus on the staircase as a tourist attraction!

The first thing to do in Amsterdam? Why is making a tour along the canals and the port of Amsterdam in one of the many canal boats glass walls that run throughout the year in Amsterdam. Are there no better way to see all the essential features of the city, and to see that in one fifteen time. The boats pass by the facades of old patrician houses the Herengracht and the others they go by the District of debauchery Dike, and the point on the famous 15th century Schreier-Storen, where the wives Dutch sailors used tears to say goodbye to their men, they show you the picturesque Brug Skinny on the Amstel, and furniture, hooks above the canal houses, they spend tens of other important sites, and finally, they surf the large port of Amsterdam, cargo increased from exotic lands and past the docks where the ships were huge lifted from the water for cleaning and repairs. Throughout the guides pretty girl-and-mind maintain a commentary on the sights you pass along the path.
