The Amsterdam convention centre brings people together from around the world to enjoy international and national events. If you have a unique sense of style, try visiting during Amsterdam Fashion Week. The event attracts more independent designers than its Parisian and Milanese cousins, making catwalk entries more feasible.
Most great Amsterdam hotels serve Indonesian food thanks to the Dutch's colonial past. Owing to the volume of international tourists the city receives each year, there is a diverse range of dishes available throughout the city. Head to the south of the area for Surinamese food or to the Albert Cuypmarkt for a selection of local cheeses.
Amsterdam hotels close to the main central streets allow for easy access to multiple fashion stores. Amsterdam Zuid blends fashion and museums with ease. Visit Javastraat for slightly more ethnic stores, especially if you want to take home a variety of trinkets. Go to the bookstores in the Old Centre if you need English books.
With over 7,000 historic buildings in the city, Amsterdam is one of Europe's most historical centres. WWII themes are strong there, and although it is busy a lot of the time, Anne Frank's house is worth a visit. The Van Gogh Museum is also an unmissable location, and so are several other niche museums throughout the city.
Ajax Amsterdam is the city's dedicated football club and one of the world's most popular. The 1928 summer Olympics stadium is well worth a visit, especially if you are a sport history buff. Amsterdam also hosts a marathon each year with contestants from all around the world. Visit Sloterparkbad to watch swimming and water polo competitions or head to Velodrome Amsterdam and check out some high-octane speed cycling.
