Amsterdam, a city guide

Glide along the canals in the Netherlands’ largest city, nicknamed the Venice of the North. Its many world-class museums are supplemented by lesser-known but no less absorbing attractions such as the Tulip Museum and the Dutch Resistance Museum. Canalside, explore the cobbles of De Negen Straatjes (the Nine Streets), where you’ll stumble upon countless designer boutiques, gift shops and art galleries.
