Known as one of the greatest small cities in the world, Amsterdam charms visitors with its cool and cozy atmosphere.
Step off the beaten path and head to The Jordaan and Efteling. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Amsterdam: The Mauritshuis Royal Picture Gallery (in The Hague) and Rotterdam Centraal Station (in Rotterdam). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Zaanse Schans, tour the pleasant surroundings at ARTIS, don't miss a visit to Museum Quarter, and get lost in a book at Central Library (Openbare Bibliotheek).

To find more things to do, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Amsterdam trip itinerary builder .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Eindhoven Airport and Eelde Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 9°C, and evening lows to 3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
