With intriguing museums, a delicious food scene and tons of nearby day trips - it's an excellent city break for solo travellers, couples or families.
Visit the Anne Frank House
If you're interested in the history of WWII, a visit to the Anne Frank House won't disappoint. During the war, Anne and her family hid in the attic, and it's where she penned her famous diary. Today, the annex has been turned into a museum to give visitors a glimpse into the lives of Anne and her family.
See the world-famous tulip fields
If you can, plan your visit to Amsterdam during the spring and visit the city's famous Bollenstreek tulip fields. If you're short on time, you can also admire the flowers at the city's Bloemenmarket. It's a floating market on the Singel.

The Best Time to Visit Amsterdam
The best time to visit Amsterdam is spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). It's the city's two shoulder seasons, and you'll have an easier time finding cheap flights from New Zealand. There are also fewer crowds at the top attractions and hotels drop their rates. But if you're travelling to Amsterdam on a budget, plan your trip for the city's winter months. You'll find the best prices for accommodation as hotels slash their prices to make up for the seasonal lull. The summer months (June to August) are the most expensive time to visit the city, but the weather is at it's best. Book your trip a few months in advance to lock in better prices for flights and accommodation.
