Amsterdam is the perfect city for a short trip. So if you’re thinking about visiting Amsterdam anytime soon, here are a few travel tips.

Where to eat
Visting Amsterdam always includes a lot of eating. Here are my three favorites restaurants to stop by:
– The Butcher: If you’re into burgers you should definitely pay the Butcher a visit. One of my favorite Burger places.
Where to find: Albert Cuypstraat 129
– Pancakes!: My favorite pancake place. Before visiting Amsterdam for the first time I’ve had only tried sweet pancakes… I never knew they could be so tasty with bacon and cheese as well. It’s always hard to choose what to eat. I usally go for one sweet and one savory. But I can also entrust you to try the “Poffertjes” – perfect for sharing!
Where to find: Berenstraat 38
De laatste Kruimel: The cutest bakery I’ve ever seen! If you’re visiting during spring / summer, try to catch a table on their balcony viewing a canal.
Where to find: Langebrugsteeg 4

Where to shop
I recommend strolling through the city and explore it on your own. You can find so many cute shops and places. You can find a lot of shops around the Dam Square Area (for example De Bijenkorf, a big Dutch department store), Leidsestraat, Kalverstraat and Heiligeweg. A lot of cute shops are also around “De Negen Straatjes” (“The nine little streets”) – located in the central canal belt of Amsterdam, it’s such a beautiful area to stroll around.

Where to stay
For my last trip in November I chose the “Hotel Arena”. If you want to reach the center quickly but like it a bit more quiet at night I can recommend this hotel to you. The rooms are beautiful and quite big compared to other hotels in Amsterdam. Once a mental institution it’s an impressive building with quite an interesting history. In the early 2000s it was renovated and includes now a hotel, a restaurant, a bar and a club.

Besuchen Sie Amsterdam 12. February 2016

amterdam ist cool und stylisch, jedoch auch teuer. Daher sollte man vor der Reise entsprechend suchen und buche um einen guten Preis zu bekommen. Wenn das Wetter mitspielt kann man so tolle tage haben, die Stadt hat viel zu bieten. Ich empfehle auch etwas fern von den anderen touristen in die stadt zu gehen! viel spass
