The capital of the Netherlands, Amsterdam sure has a reputation for drugs and a good time but the city has a lot more to offer and is full of culture if you look for it.

Vondelpark is one of the best parks in Amsterdam and is one of the favorite spots for tourists who want to have a picnic in the sun or do some activities with their friends and family. It is located to the southwest of the city center.

The Anne Frank House is also a must see if you’re into history as it serves as an everlasting memory of Anne Frank who was a little girl during the holocaust. Her diary was written during the holocaust and is one of the world’s leading sellers as it tells her story and how Jews suffered during the terrible event. Anne Frank’s diary is taught in most schools around the world. Anne Frank House is a biographical museum dedicated to her. It was founded in 1957 and is located in the province of North Holland. It is open from 9am to 10pm on most days.

Van Gogh museum is home to a vast collection of the works of Van Gogh who only became famous after his death. He’s famous for cutting off his own ear and eventually killing himself. Without a doubt he is one of the finest artists the world has ever seen. Because of his immense popularity it is best to book your ticket to the museum online as you’re unlikely to find any on arrival. Tickets are about 17 euros for adults.

Conertgebouw is a concert venue that hosts about 900 shows and almost 1 million visitors every single year. It is a very comfortable and enjoyable place to see a show and you can check out the show listings and ticket prices via their website beforehand. The NEMO science museum is a lovely experience especially for kids as many of its exhibits are interactive as kids can try their luck with chemistry, architecture, and even economy. It is a very educational experience and seems like a lot of fun so should definitely be visited by families. The entry ticket is about 15 euros in price.
