Freewheeling Amsterdam is one of Europe's most exciting cities, and Frommer's Amsterdam has all the practical details and candid advice you need to plan a successful trip.

With Frommer's in hand, it's easy to explore the all the city's top sights, whether you want to see masterpieces at the Rijksmuseum and the van Gogh Museum, experience the poignancy of the Anne Frank House, or bike along the canals. And of course, we've got all the details on Amsterdam's legendary nightlife: concerts, jazz clubs, brown cafes, smoking coffee shops, and even the lowdown on the Red Light District. The guide also includes side trips to Rotterdam and the Hague, plus lovely small towns nearby where you can visit cheese markets and see tulip fields in spectacular bloom.
