Amsterdam Information 
From its earliest days, Amsterdam has been a bustling hub of commerce that welcomed other cultures with open arms. Learn more about this lovely canal-side city, including the rich history and development of its tolerant society. Or jump straight to the modern day and find out about the city’s architecture and its colourful neighbourhoods. If you’re feeling ambitious, you might even pick up a few words of Dutch!

Amsterdam winters tend to be mild, and when snow does fall, it usually only sticks around for a few days. Once every few years it gets cold enough for the canals to freeze, and then everyone grabs their skates for some outdoor fun.
