The Royal Palace of Amsterdam was on my wish list for our short trip to Amsterdam. We were lucky, no official function of the Royal Family was taking place while we were in town so we were able to go on a discovery tour.
In addition to Amsterdams classic tourist attractions, the A’DAM LOOKOUT is a point of interest for many visitors. Especially the “Over the Edge” swing is advertised as a highlight. We, too, saw pictures online and so we headed to the A’DAM LOOKOUT in the most fantastic weather.
We explored Amsterdam on foot and got to see a lot. Often we found ourselves impressed by little moments, unique sights or unusual routes. And of course, we discovered many things!
Port tours are almost a must when us landlubbers visit big seaport cities. We went on a boat tour in Amsterdam that was a little bit different and which allowed us to explore a lot.
When we pick a hotel for a city tour we research the location of each one in detail. We don’t want to waste too much time commuting to the places we want to see. The choice of our hotel in Amsterdam was mostly based on Patrick’s research this time. He really wanted to stay in a hotel of the CitizenM chain. So I booked it without looking into it much further.
What sights are there in Rotterdam? The first things that come to mind are the Market Hall, the Cubic Houses or the Euromast Tower. A boat tour of the port is also almost mandatory when travelling to a seaport city. But there is so much more to the city and we would like to show you a little bit of that.
