Flights to Amsterdam

Nestled on the banks of the long shimmering ribbon-like canals that have made it famous, Amsterdam is a cultural haven in the heart of Europe. With its airport just 15 minutes away by bus or train you can fly in and out of Amsterdam as easily as you can fall in love with its countless charms.

While windmills and tulip fields are the everlasting images that Amsterdam conjures in our minds, these beautiful sights are just one trait of Amsterdam’s personality. The first scene to greet new arrivals at Central Station, before stepping out onto lively Dam Square, is the jaw dropping sight of the largest bicycle parking zone in the world. From there, the stunning Royal Palace and Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) draw the eye skywards and show off Amsterdam’s glorious architecture. Anne Frank’s House and the tranquil secret courtyard of the Begijnhof give a moving glimpse of the city’s emotive past.

If you are visiting with young ones, take them on an unforgettable day out to meet their heroes in Madam Tussauds or embrace the eerie and unnerving with a visit to the Amsterdam Dungeon. The Science Museum is a fantastically interactive way for enquiring minds of all ages to indulge their inquisitive side.

Art lovers will be in their element as they stumble upon gallery after gallery and museum after museum. The Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum are three of its most breath-taking, filled with works of art by the world’s most prolific artists. Although lively and bustling, filled with shops, quirky cafes , design boutiques and hip hangouts, in Amsterdam you are never far from a lazy canal ride or even a city beach on which to wind down and while away the hours. If you like your holidays to be more active, you don’t have to tiptoe through the tulips, you can hike and cycle and even ski your way around them! Snow Planet offers year round powder on which to board while kite surfing, sand-buggying and fly-boarding are just a few of the hair-raising sports you can try.

After a day of uncovering Amsterdam’s secret and beautiful places, you’ll be ready to sample its nightlife. From the traditional ‘Brown Cafes’ and the spectacular Grand Cafes that hark back to a Golden Age, to the stylish bars where the young and the fashionable rendezvous , Amsterdam is packed with places to kick back and relax and sample the famous beer and delicious Dutch cuisine. If the sun is shining, join Amsterdam’s locals out on one of the many terraces that overlook the glistening waters that have made this city one of the most beautiful in Europe.
