Royal Palace Amsterdam

The Royal Palace of Amsterdam is one of the three palaces in Amsterdam that is still used by the Royal Family. It is located in the west side of Dam Square and in the middle of Amsterdam. It is usually open to the public to visit but unfortunately was not available during my visit.

Amsterdam Canal Cruise

Amsterdam's canal cruise is a must for any first-time visitor. It is a great way to see the city and get to know the history of Amsterdam. The best time to do the tour is in the evening when the city is completely lit up. We did ours in the morning due to the weather . It was so beautiful and such a great experience

Amsterdam Centraal

Amsterdam Centraal is the largest railway station in Amsterdam. It is in the heart of the city and designed by P.J.H. Cuypers, the same person who designed the famous Rijksmuseum.
