Why go to Amsterdam?
Take a train into the city centre then hire a bike. There are countless hire places available. Amsterdam is the most cycle-friendly city in the world. There is a wide network of traffic-calmed streets, cycle paths, and cycle parking facilities.
So sling on your rucksack in this most cycle-friendly of places and escape the city for a night, riding west down civilised bike lanes for 25km to the National Park Zuid-Kennemerland, a rugged coastal park of dunes and big skies.
There has been a controlled release of bison into areas of the park, too.
Level of Difficulty: Moderate.
What to pack: Suitable clothes for cycling and camping (check the weather forecast), woolly hat, headtorch, raingear, sleeping bag, mat and bivvy bag, food and water.
Best time to go: Summer
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.
