Things to do near Amsterdam vacation homes

Much of Amsterdam is best enjoyed by strolling along the canals, photographing the famously tall and narrow houses that line the streets, or by hopping in a canal boat and viewing the city from a new perspective. Rent bikes, shop along the adorable Nine Streets neighborhood, or take a walking tour to learn about the diverse history of the city.

Weather

Best time to travel to Amsterdam vacation homes

Don't worry what the forecast says (this is northerly city after all), because this place is fun no matter what the weather. While summers might be warmer and sunnier than the rest of the year, they may also be crowded and expensive, so consider the shoulder seasons. Spring is still warm, with the tulips blooming from March through May. Fall brings warm and wet days, while the winter just might give you the chance to ice skate across the canals before cozying up at home in your Amsterdam vacation rental.

Water, water everywhere

With the North Sea just 14 miles away and more than 60 miles of canals—not to mention some parts being below sea level—living close to the water is part and parcel of everyday life in Amsterdam, an experience you'll get with Government of Amsterdam vacation rentals. The most famous canals are the Prinsengracht, Keizersgracht, and Herengracht, and with other canals in the network, connect to the Amstel River.
