Get on the saddle
Get on the saddle. Cycle. One thing is certain when you visit Amsterdam. You will, if you aren’t already, become a fan of cycling. You’ll envy the popularity of the bicycle in a city where this modern-day savior of the environment is the main means of transportation. Especially if you come from a city where this eco-friendly way of transportation isn’t quite there yet. Amsterdamers are obsessed with their bikes & you’ll catch them riding even in times of the harshest weather.
A stop in the central station or any train station for that matter will leave you with your mouth open. Clear cycle lanes stitch the city together, allowing you to reach every possible place of interest with your bike, safely at any time. There are several guided bike tours available offering entertaining and intimate tours for both the city and the countryside. The guided tours take you through narrow streets and cool neighborhoods, hidden courtyards, gardens, and churches helping you experience Amsterdam like a local. While cycling through parks and over canals, the guides can answer all your questions about the city and Dutch life in general.
