I love being a tourist, however this time only for three days but I had a good time. It was my first visit to Amsterdam and I have to admit that this canal side city surprised me in many ways.
The city architecture is beautiful with colourful buildings, boats and bikes everywhere.
Plenty of flowers, clogs, cheeses, vintage shops and even Christmas shops. The city symbol XXX on every corner.
I visited Ann Frank house, Van Gogh museum, Van Gogh 3D exhibition and Heineken Experience.
The city slogan ‘I amsterdam’ worth to see as well with a lovely park and place to relax in the sun.
If you are planning to stay for longer it’s worth to look at I amsterdam City Card, which provides over 30 free museums and attractions or discounts on attractions, restaurants and one free canal cruise. It also offers unlimited use of public transport. Good deal for money.

However there are plenty of tourist traps, especially around central station, so be aware. In case of shopping and sales Amsterdam is not as good as London, so don’t think about saving money on shopping there.
On 10th of August there will be a festival Loveland and at the moment Dj’s do tour bus for free with a warmup before the festival. Full line up for the Loveland : Loveland Line Up.
Lucky to see for example Tiefschwarz live!!
