Amsterdam Travel guide
Amsterdam : Michelin's recommendations
Amsterdam, capital of the Netherlands, stands on the banks of the rivers IJ and Amstel. With its atmospheric network of canals, its brick houses, its port, its intense commercial bustle, and its rich culture, this "Venice of the North" will undoubtedly cast a spell on you. Enjoy wandering for hours through the streets of the city centre, where cyclist and pedestrian are king. And don't forget to visit the art museums, which are amongst the best in the world.
