Hire a car in Amsterdam
Amsterdam is an inviting and good-natured city, with a Golden Age glow that has never faded.
Originally a fishing village, it later emerged as a city of prominent artists and futuristic thinkers. During the 17th century, its signature canals were woven into the fabric of the city, which today still charm visitors.
It is also one of the world's friendliest cycling locations, with over 400 km of bike paths connecting the city (there are more bicycles than permanent residents!) Amsterdam is an engaging off-beat metropolis brimming with local artisans, world-class attractions and a laid-back atmosphere, giving the city a continually youthful glimmer.

A short drive from the city, you’ll find bulb growing regions such as bollenstreek, where the fields are bursting with colour from March till May. Within Amsterdam itself, you’ll also have your pick of the crop. Visit the floating flower market, open summer and winter, or the Tulip Museum to learn about the Netherlands horticultural history.
You do not have have to wander far to find one of these iconic Dutch landmarks. Amsterdam itself has eight windmills. Water Mill 1200 Roe is an octagonal mill originally used to keep the surrounding swamp area dry, while d’Admiraal windmill was used as a chalk mill – the last remaining in the Netherlands.
One of the most delicious and “typically Dutch” items is cheese, and the Amsterdam area has plenty of it to try. Ever tasted Edam cheese? It comes from the town of Edam, just over a half an hour’s drive from Amsterdam. The city, which was once a busy port for cheese trade, still has a traditional cheese market during the summer.
