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.

The place to be for a real Dutch herring, beautiful cheeses or bargain fashion.

Amsterdam's largest general market Editors' Note

Albert Cuypmarkt is Amsterdam’s largest general market that sells everything from pillows to prawns at great prices. The clothes on sale tend to be run-of-the-mill cheapies.

Albert Cuypmark began trading in 1904. Today there are over 300 stalls on both sides of the Albert Cuypstraat in the neighbourhood of De Pijp. The market gets very crowded on Saturdays.
