Welcome to Amsterdam
Let us welcome you to Amsterdam, a place of many inspiring and surprising faces. No other city mixes cosmopolitan style and relaxed atmosphere quite like Amsterdam, where our hospitable nature attracts an excitingly diverse population. We invite you to join us and make our metropolis your own during your stay.
Whether admiring the Golden Age gabled merchants’ houses of the old city centre or marvelling at the sleek skylines of the new Zuidas and harbour areas, you will see that Amsterdammers pride themselves on the city’s rich history while keeping focused on the future. Creative energy and innovation abound, strengthening and inspiring the established international business community.
Home to some of the world’s most acclaimed works of art, with more canals than Venice, more bridges than Paris and nearly 7,000 monumental buildings, our compact floating city offers a variety of historical and cultural treasures. It’s no wonder Amsterdam’s historic canal ring has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Maybe you will visit our world-famous diamond factories, discover the city’s tradition as a jazz hub or simply soak up the local nightlife in a casual café – whatever you choose, we hope you enjoy our vibrant, open spirit.
