Overview

You'll never fall into the tourist traps when you travel with Frommer's. It's like having a friend show you around, taking you to the places locals like best. Our expert authors have already gone everywhere you might go -- they've done the legwork for you, and they're not afraid to tell it like it is, saving you time and money. No other series offers candid reviews of so many hotels and restaurants in all price ranges. Every Frommer's Travel Guide is up-to-date, with exact prices for everything, dozens of color maps, and exciting coverage of sports, shopping, and nightlife. You'd be lost without us!

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. We've reviewed the very best places to stay and dine, from plush business hotels to intimate, family-run B&Bs, from grand cafes to Indonesian rijstaffel restaurants. 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. Frommer's puts the city at your fingertips, with walking tours, a complete shopper's guide, and a free color fold-out map!

Other helpful guides for your trip include Frommer's Belgium, Holland & Luxembourg and Frommer's Irreverent Guide to Amsterdam.
