Amsterdam

Think it's all clogs and gouda?

Overview

Not on your Nelly. Step away from the tourist haunts and red-neon glare and discover this stunningly beautiful city with the head of a metropolis and the heart of a village.

No other city confers as many rights to cyclists. Being an infant or infirm is no excuse, get out of their way!

Weather wise, May-Sep is best time to visit, the glorious outdoors is in full swing.
