Bustling, creative, diverse, in short: Amsterdam is a city that is alive, which provides every visitor and every local with a place to call home. The city appears grand, but is actually made up by a number of small villages, characterised by warmth and authenticity. From the upperclass southern part of the city to typical Amsterdam-style conviviality on the Albert Cuyp market, and from the exotic scents of the Dappermarkt, to the city centre’s hip clubs. The monumental architecture found in the city center, the modern architecture of the KNSM islands and the great number of museums offer the culture aficionado plenty to enjoy.
