Amsterdam & De Fryhof
The Dutch capital
Amsterdam, the Dutch capital, is known for its artistic heritage, extensive canal network and narrow gabled houses, a legacy of the Golden Age. In the Museum Quarter are the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum with works by Rembrandt and Vermeer, and the Stedelijk Museum with modern art. Cycling is inextricably linked to the character of the city and there are many cycle paths.
