Anne Frank House – one of Amsterdam’s top 3 museums

The Anne Frank House museum is one of Amsterdam’s most popular tourist attractions.

A new ticket & entry system introduced last May has now significantly reduced the legendary ‘eternal’ queues . However, with some 1.3 million visitors in 2016, visiting the museum takes some planning.

We explain the ticket & entry system, alert you to the busiest times, and have a serious warning about where not to get tickets.

Amsterdam Light Festival 2016-2017

Amsterdam doesn’t do Christmas well. But it does have the annual Amsterdam Light Festival — a fantastic winter event that combines light, art and — of course — water.

Now in its fifth year, the Amsterdam Light Festival has quickly become a very popular attraction. Last winter it drew 850.000 visitors — 100.000 more than in the year before.

Advance ticket sales promise another record for the 2016-2017 version.

A’DAM Lookout — Amsterdam 360° Panorama Observation Deck

Opening May 14, 2016, A’DAM Lookout is Amsterdam’s only publicly accessible observation deck.

Plug: are you brave enough to take a ride in Europe highest swingset?

Updated! Europe’s highest set of swings — right atop the A’DAM Lookout’s skydeck — will open on August 26.

Amsterdam’s oldest house

Hidden behind a rather boring 19th century façade, Amsterdam’s oldest house dates back to 1485.

Until 2012, when the house was dated, another structure was believed to be the city’s oldest.

Here’s the story behind Warmoesstraat 90.

Tour the Canals of Amsterdam

Whether you are here on a layover, a few days in between other places, or for an extended vacation, no visit to Amsterdam is complete without a canal tour.

Some say it is the best way to see the city. Others says it’s the best way to get from point A to point B.

Specialty tours are popular as well: dinner cruises, or tours with pizza, cheese and wine… whatever floats your boat.
