Flying To Amsterdam With American Airlines

American Airlines flights to Amsterdam help you experience this diverse and charming city. Peaceful and picturesque canals, relaxed sidewalk cafes and a vibrant cultural scene -- in addition to an exciting nightlife -- mean there are a wide number of things to do in Amsterdam to build lifelong memories.

Things to Do in Amsterdam

One of the most beautiful activities in Amsterdam is a tour of the city's many canals. Historical buildings meet the edge of the water in this remarkable shipping port. A great way to see the best of it all is with an Amsterdam Canals Dinner Cruise. You'll savor wine and dinner while enjoying a view of the most scenic stretches from a glass-domed boat.  

Amsterdam is a very walkable and bikable city. In fact, bikes far outnumber automobiles. An Amsterdam Bike Rental is a great way to explore the city at your own pace. There are places for parking bikes everywhere, making it easy to take in the many significant cultural and historical sites.

No list of things to do in Amsterdam would be complete without including a visit to the Anne Frank House, located in the center of the city. We also suggest a stop at the Van Gogh Museum, which contains the world's largest collection of the artist's paintings. The Rijksmuseum is easily the city's largest, with collections of art, historical artifacts and of drawings, prints and photographs. Due to a major renovation scheduled through 2013, part or all of the museum may be closed; we advise checking before you arrive to see if it is open.

Another one of the most popular things to do in Amsterdam will delight flower lovers: a tour of tulips! If you'd like to see fields abloom, plan to visit in the spring -- ideally in mid-April. Make plans to visit the Keukenhof Gardens, which are reminiscent of a fairy tale in their beauty.

Then, of course, there is the exciting nightlife in Amsterdam. There is said to be over 1,000 bars across the city, and there are also clubs where you can dance until dawn.
