3 Fun Things to do in Amsterdam
Amsterdam was an awesome weekend trip for us when we were living in Germany! The Dutch capital is the home of notable artists and headquarters of some of the world's largest companies. It's also a center of cultural diversity and centered around 100 km of canals. This list of attractions is also wide and long but here are three fun things to do if you make the trip.
1. The Van Gogh Museum. The many still life and self-portraits of the famous Post-Impressionalist painter will move you to inspiration. Considered a failure by many in his lifetime of only 37 years, Vincent Van Gogh created masterpieces that will have any audience emotionally seized by his deep concept of color.
2. The Singel Canal. The center canal of the spectacular design of concentric waterways that characterize Amsterdam, the Singel Canal is lined by beautifully decorated houses. Also a popular site for adult entertainment, the homes with red-lit windows clearly signify the famous The Red-Light district. Whether it's enjoying Indonesian cuisine or admiring the historic Dutch architecture, the Singel Canal is a must see.
