Amsterdam, Netherlands Travel Guide Last Updated: Jan 2022

Easily one of the world’s most beautiful cities, Amsterdam also used to have a reputation for a famous red-light district and coffeeshops, but those are being phased out for tourists so it’s back to basics. No trip to this part of Europe is complete without a few days in Amsterdam, and you’ll probably find it hard to leave.
