Culture, canals and coffee shops, Amsterdam is not only Europe’s capital of fun, but is a great place to unwind and take things easy.  Tolerant, welcoming and a lot of fun, Amsterdam is a city that likes to take things at a leisurely pace during the day but gets into party mode at night. So, whether you’re looking to recharge those batteries or wear them down a little more, you’ll find Amsterdam has options for both. And what a setting! Beating Venice in the canal stakes, cities really don’t get much more picturesque than this. The old town and the centre, which is where you’ll want to base yourself, is a delight of arched bridges, 17th century narrow gabled houses, houseboats decked with flowers and canal-side cafes and eateries. 

Packed with museums and galleries, Amsterdam is a jewel in Europe’s cultural crown. The Rijksmuseum is one of the best art galleries in the world, including paintings from the Dutch Golden Age and art lovers will also enjoy the Van Gogh Museum. Visit Anne Frank’s House to see where the famous diarist and her family hid from the Nazis during the Second World War.

February 2017
This month sees the beginning of a momentous exhibition at the Hermitage Amsterdam, the stately outpost of the St Petersburg art trove. Romanovs & Revolution commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution with an exquisite collection of objects belonging to Tsar Nicholas II and his wife Alexandra. (www.hermitage.nl)

August 2017
The Martin Luther King quote "we may have all come in on different ships, but we're in the same boat now" is the inspiration for artist Sarah van Sonsbeeck's intervention in the Oude Kerk, Amsterdam's oldest surviving building. Here, amid the final resting place of Holland's naval heroes, she uses emergency blankets and other unconventional materials to ponder the topical issue of migration. (www.oudekerk.nl).

August 2017
You don't have to choose between vitamin D and a shot of culture this (or any) summer in Amsterdam, thanks to the venerable tradition of open air performances in the famous Vondelpark. Taking in dance, pop music and cabaret, the majority of shows require no knowledge of Dutch to be enjoyed. (www.openluchttheater.nl/english/)

June 2017
The second week of this month is your last chance to experience (formerly) Young British Artist Martin Creed's playful intervention at the Museum Voorlinden in Wassenaar (www.voorlinden.nl). Once you've had your fill of balloon-filled rooms, head out into the exquisite gardens by master of Dutch horticultural design, Piet Oudolf.
