Nobody knows the SWISS destinations better than our staff. A restaurant that is not listed in every travel guide, an original bar, a charming café, or great tours with spectacular lookout points. Let our travel professionals inspire you with their tips.

Centrally located within walking distance from Amsterdam’´s central station on the shores of lake «Het IJ», the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel brings lounging to a higher level. The SkyLounge on the eleventh floor of the hotel has a stunning view over the city centre. A visit is especially recommended at sunset when the city lights are coming up. Nevertheless the view is great at any time of the day while enjoying a coffee with their irresistible handmade sweets and chocolates. Cocktails and drinks can be combined with finger foods while enjoying the view over the characteristic city centre of the Dutch capital. Feeling up for some live entertainment at night!? Lounge and dance the night away to the music of the live DJ . In summer the adjoining SkyLounge terrace is the ideal place to settle down from some refreshment and observe the daily city buzz from above. Passing by ships and trains, canal boats and not the forget the enormous amount of bicycles so typical for the Dutch city live.

The ultra modern Openbare Bibliotheek (public library) is just a few minutes’ walk from the main railway station. Well worth a visit – not just for the contents, but also for its exterior. At 28,000 m², it is one of the biggest public libraries in Europe. There are fabulous views of the city from the fifth floor.
Open every day from 10.00 until 22.00.
