Dam Square
The easiest way and place to meet your guide is at the National Monument on Dam Square since you truly cannot overlook the giant white pillar. Dam is the heart of the city and the place where the Amsterdammers built a dam over the river. Because this is where the city originated one could say that this is where all the magic happened. Nowadays the beautiful square is a symbolic location because it houses important national symbols such as the National Monument, the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) and the Royal Palace.

5 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Look with your guide for a secret door in the city center and discover the Beguinage, a hidden courtyard from medieval times. With its serene and quiet atmosphere it feels like an oasis in the city.

10 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Follow your guide who leads the way through quaint alleyways with cobble-stoned streets where no other tourists are to be found. In the Dutch 17th century Holland was incredible wealthy and powerful. The architectural heritage from those colonial dark days is seen all over this compact city, just like its classical character with gorgeous canal houses and historical house boats. Admire the Waag, a medieval, fairytale-like building that once served as the gate to Amsterdam and other important sights such as Anne Frank House and the Westerkerk (Wester Church).

Curious? Book and be sure to enjoy a high quality, off-the-beaten path walking tour full with countless of marvellous views. Not sure yet but don't want to miss out? There is always the 24-hr free cancellation policy.
