Only a 25-minute drive from the hotel is the lovingly preserved medieval city of Haarlem. Stroll the narrow, cobbled streets and take in sights like the turrets of the quaint Amsterdam Gate, built around 1400. Head to the Grote Markt (big market), in the bustling centre of town, and relax with a meal or a drink while surrounded by impressive Gothic architecture.
Don’t miss Amsterdam’s top tourist attraction ‘Anne Frank’s House’, on the Prinsengracht Canal, where the Frank family lived in hiding during World War II. The lower floors are devoted to exhibitions on life during the German occupation, while the "Secret Annex" remains largely unchanged since the family's capture in 1944. The sensitively curated museum makes for a haunting, memorable experience.

Don't Go Home Without
A trip to Amsterdam would not be complete without a taste of herring, a local delicacy which has been enjoyed in Holland for more than 600 years. The fish is salted, then eaten whole, usually accompanied by raw onions and pickles. Eaten as a street food snack, it's sold in fish kiosks around the city. Grab a plate of herring and sit by a scenic canal for a truly authentic local experience.
