Hotels and accommodation in Amsterdam

We highly recommend staying in the city center for your 2 days in Amsterdam. Staying in a central location makes it easy to access all the sightseeing spots. Keep in mind the central hotels will be expensive, we recommend booking hotels early once you have finalized the trip.

Here are our recommendations for hotels in central Amsterdam

NH Barbizon Palace (Luxury)

  • Beautiful 5-star hotel located in central Amsterdam
  • Great location, access to the canals, Dam Square and other sightseeing areas

When is the best time to visit Amsterdam? 

Amsterdam is great all year round. Usually, shoulder seasons are great in visiting Amsterdam as the weather is pleasant and during spring – April to May – are great for visiting tulip fields of Keukenhof and also scoring a good hotel deal.

The same goes for September to November. We visited in September for the first time and were blessed with great weather and no rains :). December is great for winter and holiday festivals.

Day 1 Amsterdam Itinerary

Arriving at the Amsterdam Centraal Station

We arrived in Amsterdam, bright and early from Brussels. The Amsterdam Centraal Station is grand with many inter-city and regional trains, tour operators, restaurants, and shops on site. For the first day in Amsterdam, we have a jam-packed day ahead.

Amsterdam Centraal Station
Amsterdam Centraal Station

Amsterdam Centraal is the largest railway station in Amsterdam. All the sightseeing spots in the city center area are within walkable distance.

Exploring the center – Dam Square

The Dam as the name suggests was originally a dam built over the Amstel River. Over the years, the Dam was no longer used as it was meant to be and it emerged as a center of the city of Amsterdam – leading to trade, administration, and other activities. The Dam and the Amstel River gave the city its name – Amsterdam.

At Dam Square, you will feel the pulse of the city – it is definitely the center. There are tons of historic buildings located in and around Dam Square. It also links the mouth of the Amstel called the Damrak.

Starting with the Royal Palace at the west end of the square to the New Church or the Nieuwe Kerk and National Monument – it is all located by the rectangular square. The Royal Palace was originally used as a town hall and then became a royal residence in 1808.

Dam Square
Dam Square Scenes

The Madame Tussauds Museum is also located at Dam Square. A sprawling shopping space – De Bijenkorf is also located here.

Keep in mind that visiting each of these sites will take 1-2 hours each. So for a short 2 day Amsterdam Itinerary, we recommend choosing one (or two) based on your interests and time on hand. But definitely head to Dam Square to look at all the historic monuments (even if it’s from the outside).

As Madame Tussauds Museum is located by the square, you will find many artists dressed as movie stars ready to entertain and take pictures.

At the Dam Square
At the Dam Square

This square has also been a witness to many historical events – some good and some bad – shooting of Dutch nationals in 1945 to coronation resistance in the late 1980s – it had seen it all. The square has also seen great times like the Christmas markets and National Tulip Day every year.

Did you know that Canada and the Netherlands share a deep, special relationship? It was the Canadian troops who liberated the Dutch in the Second World war from the German invasion. Canada also provided refuge to the Dutch royal family and one of their princesses – Princess Margriet was born here in Ottawa, Ontario. The Dutch thanked us by sending thousands of tulip bulbs and hence we also celebrate a tulip festival here in the spring every year. It is a symbol of friendship and appreciation of each other’s culture and long standing partnership!

Walk the Red Light District

The MOST talked about spot in Amsterdam is their main red-light district. The Red Light District is located in the oldest part of Amsterdam. You will easily notice bright red neon windows with signs of sex services (see one below). From the windows, you will see barely-dressed prostitutes advertising their services and it is acceptable and allowed inside this designated part of the city.

Photographing the workers is not allowed, but as you walk through the lane you can photograph the buildings and historical plaques.

You can visit a museum set in a 17th-century building to learn more about the history of prostitution in Amsterdam. Learn about the museum tour here

Oude Kerk – the oldest church in Amsterdam

Located very close to the red light district (in De Wallen) is the oldest parish church in Amsterdam.

The Oude Kerk is the oldest church in Amsterdam. Oude Kerk literally means old church. This parish church was founded in 1213 and consecrated in 1306 by the bishop of Utrecht (with Saint Nicolas as its patron saint). Currently, it stands as a Calvinist church.

Amsterdam Itinerary Old Church in Red light district

Jordaan Neighborhood

Jordaan neighborhood is the beautiful stretch of an area within the city center known for upbeat cafes and pretty houses. The word Jordan is derived from the French word ‘Jardin’ meaning garden. This area was initially the land of immigrant families and the poor working class. The small blocks of houses, once upon a time, housed large families and with little to no sewage facilities.

Jordaan neighbourhood

In the 20th century once sewage plans were adopted, the face of Jordaan changed and it slowly became what it is today. Young professionals, students, and artists started frequenting the area, and a stream of stores, cafes, and restaurants were set up to keep people coming.

A 1-2 hour walking tour is the best way to explore this part of town. Learn more about walking tours in Amsterdam.

We highly recommend walking through the lanes and stopping by, wherever you fancy – for fries or photos.

At the edge of the Jordaan neighborhood is the Anne Frank House.

Anne Frank Museum

The Anne Frank Museum is located in central Amsterdam – at Prinsengracht 263. This 17th-century canal house is the same building where Anne Frank and her family along with four others were in hiding from the Nazis. They were hiding at the rear end of the building (called the Secret Annexe) for 2 years and 1 month.

Anne and most of her family members didn’t survive the war, except for her father – Otto Frank and Anne’s diaries. Her diary reveals the stories and hardships that she and her family experienced in those times.

The building today houses a permanent exhibition portraying the life of Anne Frank. It also has an exhibition space for discrimination and other related human rights topics. I do recommend reading the Diary of Anne Frank before your visit to understand its historical importance in today’s world. I read this in my high school and still remember, sometimes these stories stay on. (Buy the book from amazon here)

In order to visit the exhibitions and the museum, you will have to book tickets online. No tickets are available on site. Tickets cost 11 euros per adult and it is recommended that you book tickets 2 months in advance. Get Anne Frank House tickets here. The museum is open from 09:00 am to 10:00 pm every day. So they are open till late to the visitors.

If you are unavailable to find tickets for any of the 2 days in Amsterdam that you are visiting, I still recommend heading to the site and taking a look at the building. The Anne Frank Museum is the third most visited museum in the Netherlands.

The canal area by the Anne Frank huis building is perfect for a rest stop. It was breezy and cozy when we were there.

You can also book an Anne Frank tour that talks about life in Amsterdam through the eyes of Anne Frank

Bloemenmarkt or Flower Market – the only floating flower market in the world

Amsterdam Flower Market called the Bloemenmarkt, is the only floating flower market in the world. It is located on the Singel canal between the Koningsplein and the Muntplein.

Bloemenmarkt
Bloemenmarkt

The flower stalls stand on the houseboats and have been in existence since 1862. This is one place where you will see pretty flowers and fragrances all year round.

Bloemenmarkt is open from Monday to Saturday from 09:00 to 17:30 and Sunday from 11:30 to 17:30. Free to explore.

Heineken Experience and a romantic evening canal cruise

Heineken Experience in Amsterdam
Heineken Experience

In the evening, head to the Heineken Experience. Once upon a time, this was a brewery (yes the original brewery site), today it is a museum with interactive tours.

Tickets for the Heineken Experience here

You can spend an hour or so here and then head to take a canal cruise tour in the evening. We highly recommend taking a canal cruise, if you have never taken one. We had done 1- 3-hour cruises in historic rivers and loved it. Amsterdam is no exception, it is in fact very beautiful due to the lights at the canals.

It is a good idea to take a canal cruise to experience the city’s core, by the canals. And even though depending on your schedule you may or may not be able to cover the entire neighborhood on foot, the cruise gives you a glimpse of the city in the most romantic and comfortable way possible. So we highly recommend it.

Amsterdam Canal
Amsterdam Canal

There are many different types of canal cruises available to choose from. We have highlighted the three most popular ones, which can fit anyone’s budget and time

  • Take a 4-course dinner canal cruise, a great way to spend the evening, and enjoy the city covered in night light’s glory. Check out the dinner cruise here
  • Take an hour and a half canal boat tour. We highly recommend this one, as it does a complete loop of the neighborhood and you get a good look at the city from the waters. Book the 1.50-hour evening canal cruise here
  • Combo ticket: There is a combo ticket that includes the canal cruise and entry to the Heineken Experience if you wish to cover both. Check the tour prices here

Dinner by the Canal 

We enjoyed our beer and food at the canal and we recommend that you do so too. A dinner cruise like this one is great. Or opt for restaurants with outside seating areas for that romantic evening – Loetje Centraal ($$), Grand Café 1884 ($$). You will also find fast-food chains like Burgerij and Exki, located close to Amsterdam Centraal.

Day 2 Amsterdam Itinerary

For day 2 in Amsterdam, head to explore the famous windmills of the Netherlands. I know it is a stretch for a 2-day itinerary for Amsterdam, but we so wanted to see the windmills that we couldn’t pass. The key to incorporating a short trip is to ensure you plan everything and book a tour in advance so that every sightseeing spot is hit during your stay.

A short trip to Zaanse Schans

zaanse schans
zaanse schans

And that is what we did. A short trip of 3 hours (with sightseeing included) is possible. So we chose Zaanse Schans to explore the countryside and the functioning windfalls. Zaanse Schans is located in the neighboring town of Zaandam, about 30 minutes from Amsterdam. You can take the train or drive to arrive in Zaanse Schans in 30 minutes – one way.

We took a ‘half-day tour’ of 3 hours, and we highly recommend it to avoid wasting time figuring out the place. In 3 hours we arrived and explored Zaanse Schans with a guided tour of a cheese factory, clog factory, and TONS of photo ops at the windmills!

Zaanse Schans

Here are some tour options. We took the morning tour.

  • 10:00 am AND 2:00 pm tours (for 3 hours from the NH Barbizon Palace Hotel) – Book here
  • 11:30 am tour (for 3.5 hours from the A’DAM lookout) – Book here

Zaanse Schans is known for its historic windmills and distinctive green wooden houses. The site has one of the oldest windmills and you can talk to the windmill care-takers and see how it operates. I actually climbed up a steep wooden staircase to reach the top of the windmill deck and in a dress – call me adventures. It was stunning from up there, so why not!

zaanse schans
zaanse schans

Zaanse Schans looks like it is out from a postcard – so gorgeous. The Zaans Museum has model windmills and interactive exhibits on display as well. The Netherlands has many windmills sites that you can visit, but for a short trip to Amsterdam – incorporating a trip to Zaanse Schans is definitely feasible. We did it, you can too!

zaanse schans

If you have more time on hand or if you are in Amsterdam for more then 2 days, this hop on and hop off bus to many windmill sites including Zaanse Schans might be of interest to you. It also covers other sites like Edam and Volendam – perfect for a full day trip. Check out the tour here

Rijksmuseum

Rijksmuseum is one of the most visited museums in the Netherlands. Rijksmuseum is an art and history museum, located in the Museum Quarter of central Amsterdam area. The museum is grand and it will easily take 2-3 hours to explore most of the exhibition displays and artifacts.

Museum hours are from 09:00 am to 05:00 pm every day. So we recommend heading there right after the tour. The museum complex has a café and restaurant that is open to all visitors even without a museum entry ticket. You can grab a quick bite to eat and then explore the museum. Café hours are 09:00 am to 06:00 pm every day.

Museum tickets cost 17.50 euros or around 23 USD. It should be purchased and booked online. Free entry is included with the I Amsterdam City Card or Museum Card (musuemkaart). Book tickets to the Rijksmuseum here

We were lucky enough to see the I AM STERDAM sign in September before it was taken down in December 2018. It was too crowded for a picture.

Van Gogh Museum

Ready for another museum? This one will be quick and it is located within the Museum quarter. It is the Van Gogh museum. The Van Gogh Museum is an art museum displaying arts and paintings from the legendary post-impressionist painter – Van Gogh. Van Gogh was a Dutch painter and he is well-known for oil paintings like the Starry Night.

This museum is the largest collector of Van Gogh paintings in the world.

The museum is open from 09:00 am to 06:00 pm every day and it is a must for all fine arts lovers. Even without fine arts knowledge, you can still appreciate the artwork inside the museum. It will take 1- 1.50 hours to explore the museum.

The museum is open an hour later then the Rijksmuseum so definitely time it well, if you are visiting them late afternoon. Tickets can be purchased online. Book tickets for a 2 hour exclusive Van Gogh Museum Tour here

Explore the Vondelpark in the evening

Located very close to the Van Gogh Museum is a large green space in the centre – Vondelpark. Vondelpark is the largest city park in Amsterdam and it only a 6-minute drive (or a 12-minute walk) from the Van Gogh Museum.

This park was opened in 1865 and originally called the New Park or Nieuwe Park. Today it is called the Vondelpark – named after the 17th-century playwright and poet Joost van den Vondel.

A very popular place to relax and hang out – this park attracts millions of visitors each year. The park has an open-air theatre and several cafes inside. June through September are popular times to hit the Vondelpark for theatre performances.

Food in Amsterdam

Much of the popular food in the Netherlands is also quite similar to the nearby Flemish countries. We are talking frites or fries here – offered with a plethora of sauces.

Just like the Belgian waffles, the Dutch have the – stroopwafel – which is made of thin layers of dough, filled with sweet and piping hot caramel syrup. Mini pancakes (looks like mini donuts) are another sweet food item to try out. Get the list of best cafes in Amsterdam

Cod and herring (or haring in Dutch) is another popular food to try in Amsterdam. Bitterballen (like meatballs but crispy) are widely offered in bars. Ditch wings for bitterballen and pair that with a Heineken or any Dutch beer.

We went to a cheese factory and tried some gouda – one of the popular cheese – from the Netherlands.

Souvenirs to buy in Amsterdam

There are many things that you can purchase in Amsterdam and take home with you. Cheese is a popular item, however as it is a dairy product so check if you are allowed to carry it in flight.

Souvenirs of all kinds – key chains, postcards, fridge magnets, t-shirts, etc. Get canals, Jordaan neighborhood icons, I AMSTERDAM, or clogs featured souvenirs.

You can also get custom clogs designed to take home as souvenirs. If you are looking to purchase cheap but fashionable clothes – there is a Primark store, located in central Amsterdam.

Bikes Lanes and Safety: 2 day Amsterdam Itinerary

As you might already know about Amsterdam that it is filled with bikers and the city is mostly associated with bikes (cycles). Be very careful and aware of bike lanes. Here in Canada, there are bike lanes as well, but it is a totally different feel, volume (or traffic), you can say.

In Amsterdam, there are bikes everywhere, so stay clear of the bike lanes and out of the way. It is normal to be mesmerized by all the buildings and canals while exploring Amsterdam, but watch out for bikes!

We hope you enjoyed our guide to things to do in Amsterdam for 2 days. Amsterdam is a beautiful city and we definitely left a piece of our hearts back there. We know we will be going back soon and enjoy the city a bit more.

Can’t wait to visit again, Amsterdam <3

  1. Can you believe I have been to Amsterdam but almost none of those things! No, I wasn’t spending my time “greening it out” but just lounged around the cafes with friends. Saving this for my next trip later this year. Thanks for such a comprehensive guide 🙂

  2. I can’t wait to get to Amsterdam! I really want to visit Oude Kerk and the Anne Frank Museum. I didn’t know about Bloemenmarkt, I definitely want to go there to take in the smells and all the color! Your pictures are so beautiful and I’m ready to pack my bags right now and head to Amsterdam.

  3. Great Amsterdam city guide! I couldn’t agree more that biking there is on a whole new level from what I’m used to in Canada. We liked to joke that they have bike highways! People are driving so quickly, and there are so many of them!

  4. Omg you buyed the IAMSTERDAM card. I also did it last time I was visiting.
    Now that I live in Rotterdam I barely visit Amsterdam but I have to go back when the weather gets a little bit warmer.

    If you ever go back you should also visit the 9 straatjes. Vintage shops and restaurants everywhere to find there.
    But you really managed to do a lot during your 2 day trip.
