The Skybar is not only is a hotel rooftop bar but it has the best view in the while of Amsterdam. The bar serves small bites to eat and full meals. And a large variety of alcohol.

6. Picnic in vondelpark

Vondelpark is situated near Rijksmuseum which is near central Amsterdam, and is filled with open air museums, ponds and playgrounds. I visited Vondelpark the last time I visited Amsterdam but it was winter and sitting in -2 degrees is not ideal.

7. Visit a beach

Amsterdam is famous for its canals but if you take a 30 minute train journey from the city center you will come to a beach called Zandvoort which borders the North Sea.

8. Plan a day trip to Zaanse Schans

Zaanse Schans is a Dutch neighborhood in the town on Zaandam which is in North Holland. Green wooden houses and historic windmills were relocated here to recreate the look of an 18th century village.

9. The Hash, Marijuana and Hemp museum

The name of this museum kind of explains itself but the museum aims to teach people how helpful Hash, Marijuana and Hemp was in past civilization. There is also an indoor cannabis garden located in the museum.

10. Anne Frank House 

The Anne Frank House is probably the most famous tourist attraction there is in Amsterdam. You will have the experience of seeing Anne Frank’s actual diary, a reconstruction of her bedroom and annex.
