Best things to do in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is one of Europe's most picturesque capitals. Whether taking a boat tour on the canals, strolling through Vondelpark, or going shopping in the inner city, Amsterdam has it all. Must-sees on any itinerary include the Anne Frank House, the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksumseum. Line up early at the Anne Frank House to try to avoid the massive lines that appear each day. The Rijksmuseum exhibits more than 8000 works including historic art by Vermeer, Frans Hals, and Rembarant's "The Night Watch" which is placed in a beautifully lit hall allowing visitors to enjoy every tiny detail. From there, visit the Van Gogh Museum which is one of the most popular museums in the world due to it housing the largest collection of works by Vincent van Gogh: 200 paintings, 500 drawings and 700 letters to be exact.
