    Campervan hire in Amsterdam

    Atmospheric and extremely picturesque, Amsterdam’s dazzling cultural qualities have placed it high on the list of the world’s most popular destinations. Founded about 900 hundred years ago at the mouth of the River Amstel, the Netherlands’ compact capital city oozes tourist appeal with a kaleidoscopic mix of tourist attractions and an easy-going open-mindedness rarely found in big cities nowadays.

    With more canals than Venice and more bridges than Paris, Amsterdam astounds visitors with enough waterways and scenic cityscapes to have inspired generations of renowned painters, from Rembrandt, Vermeer and Steen to Hals, Bosch, MC Escher and Vincent van Gogh.

    Largely defined by water, the uniqueness of this city of superlatives extends well beyond the centre to the North Sea docks and shipyards currently being regenerated and the tulip fields of Keukenhof Gardens in the south-western suburbs.

    With a campervan hire in Amsterdam, you'll be very well placed to explore many other interesting places in the Netherlands, such as the picturesque city of Leiden, the country's parliamentary capital The Hague and the lovely cheese-making town of Alkmaar. For an adventure of an international kind, why not drive over the border into Belgium to spend a relaxing few hours in the charming city of Bruges, one of Europe's loveliest places.

    More information about Amsterdam

    Known for its artistic heritage, Amsterdam is a city sightseer's dream come true with many of the world's top museums and art galleries in or around the city centre. There are many other things to see and do in your campervan hire in Amsterdam besides visiting museums, such as admiring the windmills, strolling beside the canals or just relaxing and reading in one of the city's many waterside cafés.

    Amsterdam’s Oude Kerk (Old Church) has grown from a 14th-century single-aisled church into the striking Gothic-style basilica it is today. Besides a lovely old organ built in 1658, the church is remarkable for its series of delicate 15th-century vault paintings on a gilded ceiling and its exquisite stained-glass windows, most notably those in the Lady Chapel.

    Another of Amsterdam's must-see attractions is the house of Anne Frank, one of the world’s most commemorated teenagers. This very inspiring German-born young lady wrote an account of her time spent in hiding from the Nazis during World War II in a house located at Prinsengracht 263. After the capture of Anne and her family, she subsequently died in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, but her diary was later discovered and published in over 60 different languages. A visit to the attic where they concealed themselves behind a bookcase for over two years provides a heart-wrenching finale to the house tour.

    The crème de la crème of Amsterdam’s museums is without doubt the Rijksmuseum, recently improved and fully remodelled. Home to a great many masterpieces, including Rembrandt’s The Night Watch, it houses many other famous paintings by the likes of Jan Vermeer and Jan Steen, while its beautiful turreted neo-Gothic building is arguably the museum's star exhibit.

    On the subject of world-class museums, you simply cannot miss the Van Gogh Museum, which houses a rare and very extensive collection of work by the prolific but very problematic Dutch artist, whose best paintings were produced in the south of France where he stayed in 1888, with over 200 paintings and 100 drawings and watercolours completed during that period. Despite being a difficult man who lived a volatile life, his work remains as fresh and inspiring today, particularly the pieces on display in this remarkable museum.

    One of Europe's largest family attractions is NEMO, a children’s science museum comprising five floors of hands-on displays and interactive exhibitions. Housed in an innovate ship-like building designed by Renzo Piano, the museum explores a diversity of subjects including life in the universe, shapes, energy, machines and science through the ages.
