Book your Swiss flight to Amsterdam and expect some real fun in "Venice of the North". Amsterdam is most famous for its town canals called "Grachten", which once connected the houses of wealthy merchants with the harbor and the storage houses.
One of the most beautiful ways to see the city is actually by boat, some people even live on houseboats on the canals. Another way to explore Amsterdam is by bicycle like most inhabitants do. The city has a highly developed bike traffic infrastructure, making it a model for cities around the world. The must-see places are the Rijksmuseum, where you can admire some of the most famous Dutch works of art, like Rembrandt’s "Night Watch" from the 17th century, the golden age of Amsterdam.
Another prominent artist from Amsterdam is Vincent Van Gogh, who has been honored with his own museum in Amsterdam. A really typical experience is the floating flower market, the Bloemenmarkt, which consists of many boats moored to each other. Whatever your favorite flower, you will find it here.
Amsterdam is one of the few cities worldwide that is famous for its red light district. It is not only a testament to the liberal tradition of the city but also one of the oldest parts of Amsterdam. The area even has its own museum, where the history of the red light district is explained.
If you want to rub shoulders with the locals and go bargain hunting, try the beautiful flea market on Waterlooplein, right next to Amsterdam’s city hall. Enjoy a hearty Dutch dinner in one of the thousands of restaurants and start exploring the famous nightlife of the city. With its many clubs, bars and coffee shops you will surely find your kind of entertainment. Book your flight from Dubai to Amsterdam with SWISS today and enjoy the golden heart of Holland.
