More about Amsterdam and the Netherlands

Are you eager to take an independent, fresh look at the world – and yourself? Let Amsterdam redefine your perspective. This progressive city is known for its cutting edge contributions to the arts, business, politics, and social policy, and for its historical importance as well.

Amsterdam is one of the most popular destinations in Europe, attracting over 7 million international travellers annually. It is a true cultural haven with festivals all year round.

The 17th-century Canals of Amsterdam were listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2010, contributing to Amsterdam’s fame as the “Venice of the North”.
Amsterdam is a city that will get under your skin in the best possible way. The sense of history, serenity, landscapes and diversity combine for a peaceful yet impetuous mix. This makes it one of the most romantic and beautiful cities in Europe.

And Amsterdam is the capital city of the Netherlands, the country that holds a steady position among the world’s top places to live and work in. It may be a small country in size, but certainly not in impact. With its liberal social policies, maritime trading traditions and fight to keep the sea from land, its robust multiculturalism and leading technological communication, the Dutch lifestyle is a mosaic of cultural intrigue.

The Netherlands has a rich history that is still visible in its cities. Because of the short distances, they can be reached quickly. No precious time is lost because of long travel times. The public transport and the road network are of high quality. Everything is within easy reach.

It is also the land of clogs and windmills. Of rivers and canals. Of bicycles and boats. Of green polders and beautiful cities like Amsterdam and Utrecht. It’s a country with truly wonderful and truly curious sides: wide sandy beaches, brightly coloured fields of tulips, spotted cows and artists that the whole world comes to see. These are some of the reasons what makes your stay or, indeed, life here so unique and cool!
