Take to the water to fully experience Amsterdam, which ranks highly among the world’s “must-visit” cities. This maze of more than 165 Golden Age canals begs to be explored, from its world-renowned museums to its many Michelin-starred restaurants. It’s easy to lose oneself along the city’s narrow lanes, lined with tiny boutiques, jenever (Dutch gin) distilleries, tulip-filled flower stalls and secret gardens. Art abounds, from the Van Gogh Museum, with the city’s native son’s largest collection, to the Vermeers, Rembrandts and other treasures that line the walls of the Rijksmuseum. Move about like a local as you board an open-air canal boat or free ferry from Central Station or, better, yet ride a bike alongside the city’s many two-wheeled commuters. Above all, be sure to slow down and feel gezillig, the Dutch idea for “convivial” or “cozy.” Sit for a spell at a brown (bruin) cafe, a traditional drinking establishment named for its wood paneling once stained by smoke, then move on to one of the city’s exceptional eateries, serving both traditional favorites or whatever niche cuisine is having a moment.
