Amsterdam hotels on map




Unfortunately, we could not find any hotels.

Do not give up! Perhaps someone at this point refused to book.

We marked on the map all the hotels in Amsterdam so that you can evaluate their location and choose the most convenient accommodation option.

The choice of the location of the hotel depends, first of all, on the purpose of the trip and the budget of the trip. The rooms in the center of Amsterdam, like in other cities of the Netherlands, are more expensive than at some distance from the main attractions.

Business tourists prefer to book hotels near railway stations and other transport hubs, as well as near exhibition centers and other points of business activity.

Tourists who come on vacation prefer to be accommodated in hotels on the central streets of the city. Find the desired address on the map and see which Amsterdam hotels are within walking distance.

The sight of Amsterdam: the bridge of Mageret-Brug ("Skinny Bridge")




In the eastern part of the quarter, between Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht, just below the locks, Amstel crosses one of the most famous bridges of the city – Magere Brug, or "Skinny Bridge".

An indispensable background for wedding photographs, it was built of wood in 1691 and after repeated repairs was repeated in 1934 already with the use of concrete. According to legend, initially it was built with the money of two sisters who lived on different sides of Amstel and could not do without each other's company for a cup of morning coffee (gezellige midmorning). The story is rather doubtful, if only because at that time the Dutch did not know this drink yet, and the other bridges are not too far away (up to the locks only 40 meters), but it easily explains the unusual narrowness of the bridge, which hardly allowed two pedestrians to leave – money The sisters did not have enough for a more serious design.

The unusual lifting mechanism, which allowed the passage of vessels, is still in use – until 1994, it was used for its drive. the muscular strength of the caretaker!

At night, Mageret-Brug is decorated with the lights of 1200 tiny bulbs and looks amazingly photogenic (it was here that one of the scenes of Diamonds Are Forever's 1971 Bond movie was filmed).
