Must-Visit Places in Amsterdam

Hello loves,

Today’s post is probably one of the first ‘travel’ style posts I’ve done. I always see people asking on Twitter & in Facebook groups about must-visit places in Amsterdam. I’ve been there twice, the first time we didn’t do many tourist bits so I made sure the second time to cram all the tourist things in.

Anne Frank House

There is so much history steeped in this building. As soon as I walked in I could feel the atmosphere change, everyone is so quiet just trying to take it all in & try to imagine what it was like. There can be quite a large queue to get in so I would advise booking tickets in advance online. In my opinion, it’s 100% worth the wait as it’s such a thought-provoking experience.

It’s also right across from a lovely canal so after walking through the house it’s nice to sit beside the canal & just reflect.

Madame Tussauds

This is one of the funniest places I’ve been to. The wax people look so realistic with the exception of a select few. I think my highlight of this please was Ryan thinking a woman was a wax model until she moved & he screamed like a little girl. It’s located right on Dam square too so it’s easily accessible.

Artis Zoo

This zoo is a must-see when you’re in Amsterdam, it’s conveniently right outside a tram stop also. Conveniently yet oddly placed in the center of Amsterdam. It has everything you can think of, we spent most of the day walking around & awwing over all the animals.

Efteling Theme Park

This one isn’t necessarily a thing to do in Amsterdam but if you have the time & you’re in the Netherlands then you need to try to go here. It’s only 1.5 hours away. There is honestly something for everyone in this park, from fairytale walks to heart-pounding rollercoasters, it’s such a magical place.

Even if you don’t get to do any of these things, visiting Amsterdam is a definite must-do. It’s such a unique place, just taking a walk down the canals is breathtaking. There are plenty of shops for my fellow shopaholics too. I can’t wait for my next trip back! Do you have any must-visit places in Amsterdam? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time,

    1. I’d definitely recommend the Anne Frank house! If I recall it’s not too expensive either so 100% worth it!

  1. I went to Amsterdam a few years ago and really enjoyed it! It’s such an interesting city with so much to see and do. Next time I visit, I would love to go and see Anne Frank’s House, I didn’t get to see it last time as the queue was too long, so will definitely be booking tickets! Thanks for sharing your recommendations and lovely photos! <3 xx
