Top 5 things to see on your walking tour of Amsterdam

Amsterdam has a few magnificent sights, but mostly you can expect a charismatic cityscape, eccentric shopping, and a whole load of attractions unlike anything else! Here are five of its biggest draws.

Dam Square

Dam Square

Not only the most important square in the city, but the whole country! Here you'll see the Royal Palace, National Monument, and 15th century Nieuwe Kerk, New Church.

Red Light District

Red Light District

First time in Amsterdam? You might be surprised to find the Red Light District is actually quite civilized! Go during the day to check out historic buildings and quirky shops.

Anne Frank Museum

Anne Frank Museum

There's little to see from outside but huge queues, so if you want to learn about the famous diarist's attempts to evade the Nazis, book a tour with skip-the-line access!

Museum Square

Museum Square

Museumplein boasts three of the best art museums in Europe: the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk, and the Van Gogh Museum. They're worth seeing even if you don't enter any of them!

Vondelpark

Vondelpark

Around the corner from Museumplein is one of Amsterdam's most beloved parks. If it's a sunny day, push your aching feet just a little further to end your walking tour here.

Planning Your Visit

How hard is it?

Amsterdam is small and flat, but the labyrinthine layout of the city's canals and narrow streets mean even the shortest of walking tours will last at least two hours (although they're unlikely to last more than three). That said, you'd probably end up walking a lot longer trying to navigate the streets without an expert. The Dutch capital is an easy city to get lost in!

How do the free tours work?

If you're visiting Amsterdam on the cheap then you might choose to opt for a free walking tour. If so, remember your guide does this for a living so bring some cash in order to pay what you think it was worth at the end. Otherwise, be prepared to shuffle away sheepishly!

What people are saying about Amsterdam

Awesome information and we enjoyed thoroughly.

Someone on the tour asked why is it that mostly the Jews were persecuted and killed in WW 2? Unfortunately there was no answer for the question. For me it is strait forward - According to the Bible the Jewish nation is God's chosen people and they were warned in Deuteronomy that if they disobeyed Gods word they will be dispersed among all nations and they will be persecuted, which happened time and time again, even today. But God always saves a remnant of the Jews and at the end of times they will be restored as His special chosen people. Please convey this to our tour guide - I can not remember her name.

Excellent tour of Amsterdam Jewish Ghetto area

The tour that we had was excellent - the guide provided a very insightful and empathetic overview of the circumstances that prevailed in Amsterdam over the 2nd World War - we ended up at Ann Franks house. We had purchased tickets to enter Ann Franks house and museum separately - so the overall tour was excellent.

Great tour, would have been better if a show was included

The tour was great. Being shown all of the “coffee shops” and window brothels on the RLD, was very cool to see. The only thing that would make this tour great, was if a show was included in the price. I feel that for $40+ there should be a little more included maybe a show, or a visit to a coffee shop, etc.

Great and different way to explore a city

The way was nice and didn’t take us through the busy streets in the first half of the tour. The information given on the sights were great and didn’t contain too much information. The idea is good in general. I just would have liked a different ending ;)

great little session worth a go if in the area

Really enjoyed this, got 10% off in the shop afterwards too. Only thing i would advise is check the address there are LOTS of shops in Amsterdam but only 1 of them does the winr and cheese tasting.
