From your Golden Tulip 3 or 4 star hotel in Amsterdam, pay a visit to the Van Gogh Museum which holds over 1000 paintings by the Dutch Post-Impressionist, the largest collection of his works in the world. Don’t miss, either, the Anne Frank House, a poignant museum in the house in which Anne and her family lived in hiding for two years. Wander among narrow cobbled lanes lined with antique shops and art galleries in Jordaan, visit one of the city’s famous markets, such as the Albert Cuypmarket to grab a bargain, or just soak up the atmosphere - there’s always a great mood in this vibrant, good-humoured city.
If you're flying into Amsterdam, you'll most likely arrive at Schiphol International, near which one of our 3 to 5 star hotels “Tulip Inn Amsterdam Airport” is located. There are also airports in Eindhoven and Rotterdam The Hague which can be accessed by train or bus. Amsterdam's Centraal Station offers links to many European destinations, and there are several motorways serving the city, including the A1, A2, and A4. To use Amsterdam transport like a local, consider renting a bike from major companies like MacBike or City Bikes. Over 60% of all journeys in Amsterdam are made by bike. There are also public trams, busses, and commuter trains to reach the outer limits of the city. Our luxury hotels allow quick access to this public transport network.
Amsterdam is a city where high and low culture is intertwined, and at the high end of that spectrum you'll find the Rijksmuseum. It is home to famous works from Rembrandt, Vermeer, and other Dutch Masters. The Stedelijk Museum hosts modern works from Picasso, Matisse, and Chagall, while the Van Gogh Museum is another must-see for modern art fans. There are also green spaces throughout Amsterdam, and you're never too far from a picturesque park. If the Vondelpark is too crowded, beat the crowds and disappear into the sprawling Amsterdamse Bos, featuring thick wooded areas interspersed with meadows and cycling paths. For some alternative things to see in Amsterdam, take a guided tour of the Heineken brewery or wander through the revitalized De Biljmer neighbourhood with its Imagine IC Cultural Centre.
