^ Exploring the old streets and canals of De Wallen. This area is well known for being home to Amsterdam’s most famous Red Light District. It gets really busy at night, but is surprisingly peaceful during the day.
^ Hanging out at Dam Square, one of Amsterdam’s busiest tourist spots. It connects to many of the major roads in the city and is surrounded by some notable buildings such as Madame Tussaud’s, the Royal Palace, and De Bijenkorf.
^ Amsterdam has some delicious street foods. Be sure to try the patates and these chocolate covered waffles! They are all over in De Wallen.
^ Scenes from the beautiful Rijksmuseum…Spend a full day walking through the museum or take a leisurely stroll through the outdoor gardens.
Our last day in Amsterdam was spent walking through as much of the city as possible. There were so many spots that we still wanted to see, and because of the weather, we ended up having to cut some things out. I really enjoyed walking through De Wallen; we had been the previous night, but it was like an entirely different place during the day! When you first enter, coming from Dam Square, it’s really busy and full of street vendors. However, the further away from the main square you walk, the quieter and more enjoyable it becomes. There are so many old bridges and rows of canals here. You can get lost wandering around, or for a different view, hop in a boat for a guided tour through the city. One piece of advice I have for anyone visiting is to watch out for bikes!!
