Museums, quirky hotels and plenty of fun activities… it’s time for the ultimate weekend in Amsterdam in 2019.
I really love Amsterdam. It’s one of the shortest flights you can take from London, yet you really feel like you’ve landed somewhere different. For me, it’s a city that oozes fun. It’s a wonderland of treasure-packed museums, Golden Age canals, Dutch brick buildings and narrow lanes. I’m sure once you’ve visited you’ll feel like ONE weekend in Amsterdam is simply not enough, but hey, it’s a good start!
To truly make the most of your 48 hours in Amsterdam, consider ordering an I Amsterdam City Card. It’ll give you free or discounted entry to tonnes of museums and attractions in the city.
48 hours in Amsterdam will have you sipping on espresso at a café by the Singel canal, partying until the sun comes up, enjoying a dose of culture at one of the city’s top museums, and getting lost in the endless boutiques of De Piip.
One thing I should mention… there’s a lovely mix of vibes in Amsterdam. Old and new, villagey areas and busy commercial districts – it’s somewhere where you really CAN have the best of both worlds. Hang out by the quiet canals, or hop on a bike and zoom around the city taking in the architecture, views and all that makes the city special. No doubt you’ll soak up plenty of Amsterdam’s buzz along the way.
