Centuries of creativity
Described by many as a village, Amsterdam packs the cultural punch of a city many times its size. While still retaining a bit of a ‘sex, drugs and rock 'n’ roll' reputation, Amsterdam is now more about being a ‘creative city’ where the high standards set by such Golden Age painters as Rembrandt are maintained. The city has become a global hub for art, design, architecture and advertising, but one where all its attractions are just a short and scenic bike ride away.

Haarlemmerstraat is an easy walk from Central Station. By day it is crowded with shoppers browsing specialty shops and vintage clothing stores. There is a health drink bar, a bakery, and a chocolate shop, restaurants, and a charming cinema called The Movies. Bars and nightclubs attract the night crowd.
You’ll see trendy cafés, delis, supermarkets, and wine shops. The street is very narrow and the two way traffic is a bit daunting. Bicycling on the street would be dangerous. This is a great place for a stroll.
