Amsterdam City Breaks
Thinking of going Dutch? With our last minute Amsterdam city breaks you don’t have to. Exciting and cultural, the capital of the Netherlands is famous for its 17th century canals and famous painters, with a vibrant jazzy vibe in the evenings. We at Co-operative Travel offer cheap Amsterdam city breaks all year – why not book for two?
The city of Amsterdam, with its famous Red Light District and smoky coffee houses, was once a magnet for hedonistic weekend breaks. However, you have to look quite hard to find the seedy side of Amsterdam; package city breaks largely revolve around its magnificent heritage buildings, museums and canals.
Amsterdam city breaks offer something for every age and interest. To get the best value out of bargain city breaks to Amsterdam, do your sightseeing on foot. To go further afield, bike rental is cheap and plentiful – as are the dining options. For a taste of the traditional, take a short walk to the 17th century Eastern Canal Ring, a UNESCO World Heritage Site dug to attract wealthy landowners. After you’ve dined on authentic dishes on the Dutch barges, you can let your hair down at the upmarket clubs of Rembrandtplein and Leidseplein – where you’ll also find a plentiful supply of vibrant bars and cosmopolitan restaurants. The nearby zoo and Botanical Gardens make a pleasant excursion in the summer.
Of all European city breaks, Amsterdam is the most culturally gifted, with around 7000 historic buildings listed. Home to many of the world’s greatest artists, all breaks should include a visit to the Rijksmuseum in the Museum Quarter, housing works by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Frans Hals and others. The Van Gogh museum houses more masterpieces. Afterwards, why not shop for curios at the Albert Cuyp market, one of the best districts for cheap Amsterdam city breaks.
We at Coop Travel have hardly scratched the surface of what Amsterdam package city breaks can offer: the cobbled streets of the mediaeval Old Town; the Anne Frank House, the Dam Palace and many more. Book weekend breaks with us, and you can make it a regular outing.
