Amsterdam Bucket List

Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands known for its beautiful canals and narrow houses. There is plenty to see and do, below is a list of what I did during my visit.

  • Take a photo with the I amsterdam sign
  • Walk or cycle around the canals 
  • Anne Frank Huis – try and book in advance otherwise you’ll be queuing for hours. Check online or try refreshing page around 10am as new tickets become available then, you can buy tickets here.
  • Eat patatje oorlog – a mixture of chips, onions, satay sauce and mayonnaise, tastes better than it looks!

  • Visit Rijksmuseum – massive art museum with a beautiful library.
  • Try Stroopwafel – two thin waffels stuck together with caramal syrup.
  • Free walking tour – great way to learn about the history of Amsterdam
  • Stroll through Vondelpark – a beautiful park great for reading or having a picnic.
  • Walk through streets of Jordaan – full of small boutiques, cafes and vintage shops
