Blogposts coming soon! In the meantime...
- Anne Frank House - I found this to be very interesting but I find all WWII things to be interesting :) If you've seen the Fault in Our Stars you've basically already been here, but I'd still recommend it (my friend felt otherwise). Book online in advance or you will be in a long, long line
- Van Gogh Museum - if you are into Van Gogh or art in general you'll want to see this. I could've gone without it
- Vondelpark - a gorgeous, huge park! Walk around, lay in the grass and read, have a picnic
- Mike's Bikes - by bike is always my favorite way to see a city and Mike's Bikes is my go-to if an option. To be honest the traffic here is a little crazy so it was kind of nerve-wracking but worth it
- Walk around the Red Light District at night. Very interesting experience!
- Take a pic at one of the I Am Amsterdam signs (there are a few)
- Grab traditional dutch pancakes at the Pancake Bakery, perhaps on your way to the Anne Frank House
- Visit a coffee shop if that is your thing - Mellow Yellow is really popular, Bulldog Cafe is everywhere, etc
- Brouwerij 't Ij - a bar in a windmill! Good beer + meat/cheese plates
- Stay at Hotel Pulitzer Amsterdam - right down the street from Anne Frank's House. Cute area and close enough to everything
Things I didn't do but had recommended to me:
- Heineken Experience - was told "definitely do this, worth the price"
- Chipsy King - had this recommended a few times. Get fries with mayo and spicy ketchup
- Rent a bike and explore the countryside (can do this via Mike's Bikes also)
- Canal boat tour
