Travel to Amsterdam this spring for the perfect getaway.
There is a fairy tale quality to the tree-lined canal streets of Amsterdam.
Boutiques, cafes and hotels may hide behind the facades of the gabled townhouses, but the look of this beautiful city hasn’t changed much since its 17th-century Golden Age. No matter how many times you walk along the canals, they are enchanting to see, even when traffic and whizzing bicycles dispel the Old World illusion.
Anne Frank House: Many decades after World War II, a line still forms almost every day with visitors waiting to view the small, hidden rooms where 13-year-old Anne Frank wrote her famous diary. Eight people, family and friends, lived in this space, hardly daring to speak aloud for more than two years, hoping in vain to escape the Nazis. The bare rooms have lost none of their impact or poignancy with the passage of time.
Between dips into artistic and historic treasures, take time to simply absorb the freewheeling spirit of this vibrant city.
