This city is magic. It comes to life at night and just as much by a summers’ day. Tourists settle into the city center, so you can ease into the hum of locals. Enjoy the Amstel or a cheeky pint.

Savor the uncommon breeze of a passing bike or curse under your breath as it almost knocks you to the curb. Present-like homes dot Amsterdam’s canals like a storybook. Here you’ll face a city that’s much more a town in its scope.

The peace echoes through the early morning hours and welcomes you. The days are short in the colder months, but the cozy pubs on near-every corner make up for it.
