Tips and tricks for visiting Amsterdam

Avoid Major Holidays

Queens’ Day and Liberation Day weekends in April are extremely busy; therefore, you will incur much higher room rates at local hotels.

Attractions and Museums Have Long Lines in August

Due to school holidays for the summer, August brings more crowds into Amsterdam, which means longer queues for attractions, museums, and trams. Some bars and restaurants also close for the month, which means you will not have as many options.

Amsterdam’s Red Light District is Legal

Prostitution is not illegal in Amsterdam; therefore, the Red Light District is home to prostitution outlets. The area is heavily monitored by police patrols and security cameras. There are also a number of bars, restaurants, and historical museums in the Red Light District. The oldest church in the city, Oude Kerk, is in the middle of the District. Most visitors can pass through the District without any problems, but taking photographs of the prostitutes is discouraged.
