Wake up early on the second and head to the Anne Frank House to avoid the lines. Alternatively, check out the Amsterdam Historic Museum for a great overview of all things Dutch.

Afterwards, make your way to the Begijnhof, a tranquil religious compound containing the oldest chapel in Amsterdam. After lunch, rent a bike and cruise the canals of Amsterdam’s many and varied neighborhoods from the Plantage to the Jordaan. If riding a bike is too hectic for you, proceed to Waterlooplein to visit Amsterdam’s funkiest outdoor market. A block or two away you can find the Jewish Museum, Rembrandt’s House and the Willet-Holthuysen Canal House Museum, depending on your interest… Of course there’s also the Heineken Experience if you’re looking to get an early start on the evening.

For dinner, head to Amsterdam’s most ethnically diverse neighborhood known as De Pijp near Sarphatipark; Or, for a more home grown Dutch atmosphere, stop in at one of the cafes around Westerstraat in the Jordaan. For the evening’s entertainment, have a drink at a local Brown Bar or checkout one of the live music venues around Leidseplein. If you feel like dressing up, Concertgebouw at Museumplein and the Muziektheater at Waterlooplein are two of the city’s finest venues for high cultural.
