Free things to do on your Vacation to Amsterdam
We know when we travel the meals, accommodation and transport can add up the expenses. It is needless to say that it is amazing to enjoy free things on your vacation. Here is a list of reviews for free things to do in Amsterdam:
- Dam Square
The Dam square is home to many events, such as celebrations, fairs and memorials. You can also take pictures of (or with) the living statues. The square is home to many attractions, both free and paid, including the Royal Palace, National Monument, Madame Tussauds and others. Admire the beautiful exterior of the Royal Palace and Nieuwe Kerk. The National Monument, situated at the other side of the square, is a memorial to the victims of World War II, as well as a symbol of liberation and peace.
Concealed by the numerous houses and other buildings surrounding it, the area boasts a tranquil courtyard and charming chapel. Escape the busy city life and take a breather. The Begijnhof, which dates back to the fourteenth century, was originally home to a group of unmarried religious women called Beguines. The church proudly displays panels that illustrate the Miracle of Amsterdam.
Vondelpark is one of the city’s many parks to help you enjoy many green spaces for a quite afternoon. Bring a blanket, pack a picnic, lie on the grass or read a book. Stop by the Blauwe Theehuis, tucked away in the center of the park, and have a drink on one of the largest outdoor terraces in Amsterdam. In the summer months, attend one of the open-air concerts. When you’re about to leave the park, use a side exit and admire the gorgeous houses; it’s one of the richest areas of Amsterdam.
- Magere Brug
The Magerebrug, also known as the Skinny Bridge, is one of the most famous bridges in Amsterdam. This bridge sparkles at night over the Amstel River. The atmosphere creates the perfect place to share a romantic moment with your significant other.
- GVB Ferry
GVB is one of the must free things to do as it is kind of a canal cruise alternative across the IJ River. This public ferry service is completely free. You can go by foot or take your bike or moped scooter with you. Go in the morning and do a bike trip, so you can explore a bit of the north side of Amsterdam. Set sail in the evening and watch the sunset over the water.
Lose yourself in the sound of sweet, classical music and modern compositions at this internationally renowned for being one of three halls with the best acoustics in the world. These concerts are completely free to the public. In addition to this series, the Concertgebouw program offers a wide range of shows, from piano music to chamber performances and jazz to children’s concerts.
The Bloemenmarkt, located in the heart of Amsterdam on the Singel canal between Muntplein and Koningsplein, is the world’s only floating flower market. The vendors are situated on several houseboats. The Bloemenmarkt provides the perfect opportunity to admire the flowers, smell the scents and maybe even bring home a piece of the Netherlands in tulip form.
Have fun and enjoy these free things to do in Amsterdam.
