Amsterdam hotels on map

Published

on



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.

In addition to historical and cultural monuments, many guests are attracted by the famous "Red light district" in front of the Central Station and the city's excellent retail outlets – from the fleet markets of Vatreluplein and Spain Square, the flower bazaars along the Single and the Monetnaya Ploshad (Myntplein), to the chic jewelery stores of Coster Diamonds, Amsterdam Diamond Center and others.

Traditional shopping areas are the districts of the streets of Kalverstrat, Nyve-Vendijk, Rokin, Damstrat, Leidsestrat and Wijselstraat, as well as the areas of Jordan and Magna Plaza. The Zvarte Markt market complex, located 15 km north of the city, is considered the largest market in Europe.

There's never been a hypocrisy about this. Port city after all – what do you want? Ships from all over the world and sailors who stepped on the ground demanded repair, rest and entertainment. Read more →

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

Published

on

By



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).

Sightseeing in Amsterdam: St. Nicholas Church

Published

By



In the north of the historic center of Amsterdam stands the Church of St. Nicholas (C- Nicolaaskerk, Basilek van de H. Nicolaas), the main Catholic church of the city, first built in 1887 after the ban of this denomination in the Netherlands was abolished.

St. Nicholas is the heavenly patron of seafarers (and also, symbolically, children, thieves and prostitutes), so this church has become an important symbol for the city of merchants and sailors.

Now the services here are held irregularly and you can get inside to inspect beautiful interiors only with the help of a servant who opens the doors on weekdays around noon (usually until 15: 00-16: 00).
