The best tips about Amsterdam from local residents

The people of Amsterdam are proud of their city and would like to share everything with you about what they know about the city. Nice markets, cool discotheques and of course the most beautiful museums, they know exactly where you should be.

What can you ask local residents?

  • Let me remotely see the Red Light District via a live video connection
  • Tell me where the best affordable hotels are
  • What are nice and cozy restaurants
  • Where and how I best celebrate our bachelor or birthday party
  • What are the best museums
  • What can I expect during the Gay Parade

But you can also ask more general questions or questions about safety and transport such as:

  • How do I get from the center of Amsterdam to the coast with public transport (also check NS)?
  • Is Amsterdam everywhere safe to walk in the evening?
  • Where are the nearest hospitals or doctors?
  • Would you like to show me the hotel room that I booked?

A contact person on location in Amsterdam

It is also nice to know someone in Amsterdam that you can always call if there is something wrong during your stay. So wherever you are, you can always ask the local resident of Amsterdam for advice.

As a true Amsterdam citizen, your local guide likes to tell you more than you sometimes want to know. For example, whether you can use a drug or not. We, therefore, advise you to be specific in your questions in order to also get a specific answer.

In Amsterdam, you can visit several museums. Whether you like modern art or paintings from the old masters, Amsterdam has a lot to offer. The most famous museums are among others:

  • The Rijksmuseum with the famous painting The Night Watch
  • The Van Gogh Museum, with all the famous works by Van Gogh

Most museums have long queues. Especially during holiday periods. It is therefore advisable to order tickets in advance. This can be done at iAmsterdam, the official site of Amsterdam.

Amsterdam is also known for its 163 canals with a total length of approximately 75 kilometers. Tour boats depart from the central station all day long.
