Amsterdam is a fantastic and must-visit city. From cute houses by the canal to a multitude of museums, here’s what you should do with 24 hours in Amsterdam!
10 am: Do a canal cruise
Start off the day with a canal cruise! This is a great way to see the city, and prices start from 16 euros. We went with Lovers Cruises and loved the experience!
12 pm: Grab a lunch by the water
Right by the canals, there’s a variety of restaurants to choose from. We opted for a burger restaurant, Van Gogh Cafe, right after our cruise.
1:30 pm: Museum time!
Amsterdam has so many unique museums! With the Amsterdam Card, we got free entry to a variety of them, so we had a chance to really explore. Warning though, most close at 5 pm! Go to Amsterdam museum, Van Gogh Museum, and Museum of Our Lord in the Attic.
7:00 pm: Dinner
You can grab dinner by the canals again or at one of the museums! We just had some great food at the Van Gogh Museum.
9:00 pm Visit Red Light District
Perhaps one of Amsterdam’s biggest attraction is its liberal stance on drugs and sex. So check out this area if you like!
