When looking through Amsterdam packages, don't forget to plan out some visits to local attractions. For instance, check out the Jordaan neighborhood, where you can travel along canals similar to those in Venice. If you want a drink before the boat ride though, you should head over to the Heineken Experience. You should also look into car rental in Amsterdam, since many of the city's attractions are not accessible by boat. The Royal Palace of Amsterdam, for instance, will either require a bit of walking or a short drive. Similarly, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam isn't adjacent to the waterways either.
Recurring Festivals and Events
If you're looking for a low-key and quiet experience in the city, make sure that the Amsterdam hotels you're looking at have some distance from a few of the annual festivals. If you're near Sloterpark in August, for instance, the noise from the Loveland Festival's six main stages and thousands of attendees may make you want to head out and party. If you're a movie lover, you should select a place near the EYE Film Museum in May to enjoy the Amsterdam Spanish Film Festival. But if you're a "foodie," definitely stay near Food Center Amsterdam. Every June, the Het Hoofdgerecht food festival is held here.
