How to avoid waiting in line (and save a lot of time!) at Amsterdam’s tourist attractions

B. The Amsterdam Dungeon or the Amsterdam Museum
C. The Béguinage (Begijnhof)
D. The flower market
E. Zuiderkerk and Nieuwmarkt
F. The Red Light District
G. Oude Kerk

A. Dam Square and the Royal Palace of Amsterdam

Let’s start this 4-day visit to Amsterdam at Dam Square, the city’s main square.

It’s a 10-minute walk from Amsterdam Centraal station via Damrak or Nieuwendijk streets. If you prefer, you can also take the tram that departs from of the railway station.

On Dam Square, you can see:

  • The National Monument
  • Nieuwe Kerk church
  • The Royal Palace of Amsterdam, which you really should visit! The former City Hall that became a royal residence today houses a museum. There, you can admire period furniture as well as numerous paintings and sculptures.

Entrance to the palace isn’t included in the City Card, so you should buy your skip the line tickets in advance. It would be silly to waste time before visiting your very first attraction of the day!

The price is the same as at the ticket office and the audio guide is included.

You need to book it here:

place du Dam Amsterdam
Dam square and the Royal Palace

B. The Amsterdam Dungeon or the Amsterdam Museum

After the Royal Palace, you have 2 options for your next visit: the Amsterdam Dungeon or the Amsterdam Museum.

They are both located less than 5 minutes from Dam Square on foot.

1) The Dungeon is a unique experience where you can discover one of the darkest part the Netherlands history in the form of staged productions with actors in period costume.

During this 1 h 15 show, you’ll of course be invited to join in and participate to the various scenes such as a witch burning at the stake or a trial during the Spanish inquisition.

It’s really very well done and you’ll soon be taken up by the atmosphere. Well, as long as you aren’t elected to try out the instruments of torture 🙃.

The I Amsterdam City Card gets you a 25% reduction on your entrance ticket.

With the Amsterdam City Pass, you can enjoy a 10% discount for the Dungeon as long as you book your ticket online using the discount code you got when you bought the pass.

If you don’t have the pass, you can book your entrance ticket by clicking here.

2) In a more classic style but still in line with the history of the city, you can also visit the Amsterdam Museum. It’s a great way to learn about about 1,000 years of the Netherlands capital’s history!

Free entrance with the Amsterdam City Card. If you don’t have the pass, you can purchase your tickets here.

Voyage Tips - Advice

Near the square you’ve also got Body Worlds exhibition, Madame Tussauds wax museum and the Ripley’s museum. Simply choose the one you prefer!

Amsterdam Dungeon

C. The Béguinage (Begijnhof)

After spending the morning indoors, let’s continue with a walking tour of the city.

Not far from the Dungeon and the museum, you should take a look at the Béguinage, one of the oldest inner courtyards in the city.

These houses were once inhabited by a community of women called the Béguines, hence the name.

Here, you can also see Amsterdam’s last wooden house. This type of housing became strictly forbidden because of the high risk of fire.


D. The flower market

Another popular site you should see during your 4 days in Amsterdam is the flower market, or Bloemenmarkt.

The flower market is located on the banks of the canal, just 5 minutes on foot from the Béguinage. As the name suggests, you’ll find plenty of flowers here, and especially tulips, the iconic flower of the Netherlands.

Fresh flowers, bulbs, wooden flowers: they’re here in all formats and colours. There are also shops selling souvenirs such as postcards, magnets and, of course, the traditional wooden clogs.

You’re sure to find something here to take home from your 4-day stay in Amsterdam!

marché aux fleurs Amsterdam

E. Zuiderkerk and Nieuwmarkt

Let’s now walk along Kloveniersburgwal canal for 10 minutes to reach Zuiderkerk church.

At certain times of the day (the times are completely random), you can climb to the top of the bell tower with a guide.

Continue your stroll and you will pass by Nieuwmarkt square.

You will immediately recognize it thanks to “The Waag“, a building that looks like a small castle located on the center of the square. It’s actually the old gateway to the city which has today been converted into a café and restaurant.

If you continue to the north of the square, you will stumble upon the small Chinatown district of Amsterdam.

F. The Red Light District

It’s now time to visit the hottest spot in town: the famous Red Light District!

You’ve probably already heard about this district, mainly famous for its prostitutes sitting behind red-fronted shop windows!

Yes, prostitution is completely legal in Amsterdam, they are workers who have to pay their taxes just like the rest of the population.

Important: please note that it’s not allowed to take photos of the prostitutes from the street.

To learn more about the history of the district and go deeper into the subject (no, it’s not what you’re thinking!), you can take a guided tour of the Red Light District.

You need to book your guided tour here:

Voyage Tips - Advice

Here are some slightly less traditional visits that are also worth it:

red light district Amsterdam
Red light district – Amsterdam

G. Oude Kerk

Red Light District is also home to the oldest church in Amsterdam: Oude Kerk, built in the 1300s.

Entry to the church costs 15€. If you ask me, that’s a bit expensive considering the interior isn’t very special. To give you an idea, it’s the same price as St John’s Cathedral in Malta, which is incredibly more interesting to visit!

In fact, you’re mostly paying to see one of the contemporary art exhibition they usually host inside, which in my opinion don’t really fit the place and are not really worth it.

On the other hand, it’s well worth admiring Oude Kerk exterior architecture, with its red bricks and large stained glass windows.

Voyage Tips - Advice

Entry to the Oude Kerk is free of charge with your I Amsterdam City Card.

So if you have the City Card, don’t hesitate to go have a look inside and make up your own mind!

2nd day Itinerary

itinéraire Amsterdam jour 2

A. Jordaan district

If you have the chance to spend 4 days in Amsterdam, you should take some time to visit the very typical Jordaan district.

This iconic part of the city (together with the historic centre and the Red Light District) is located to the west of Dam Square.

To get there, simply walk along the canal while admiring the houses’ red brick façades. You will pass in front of Westerkerk church, the largest protestant church in the Netherlands.

Voyage Tips - Advice

The best way to visit the Jordaan without missing anything is to take a 2-hour guided tour:

Jordaan / Westerkerk

B. The Cheese Museum

While I’m talking about food, that’s exactly what the next visit is all about: the Cheese Museum, also located in Jordaan district.

Well, in all fairness, the word “museum” is a bit grand because it’s nothing more than a small exhibition in a shop’s basement with a few explanations about cheese-making.

The shop itself, located on the ground floor, will for sure grab your attention as it offers free Gouda tastings of every variety (pesto, truffle, chilli…).

Voyage Tips - Advice

Fancy taking part in a tasting workshop of the finest Dutch cheeses during your 4-day stay in Amsterdam?

I’ve selected a really nice activity where you get to taste 5 cheeses by Henri Willing who is well-known for his traditional and high-quality cheeses.

all served with local wines and beers!

C. Anne Frank House

Let’s continue your 4-day Amsterdam itinerary by staying in the Jordaan district to visit Anne Frank House (when I told you this was an optimized itinerary, I wasn’t joking! 😄)

During the Second World War, when the Jews were being hunted down, it’s here that the Fank family hid to escape deportation. Anne Frank’s diary, now famous throughout the world, tells of the conditions they lived in.

Today, you can visit the different rooms in the house and see photos and objects that belonged to the family, all alongside extracts from the diary.

Entrance tickets are available for sale online only from the official website (click here). 80% of the tickets are made available online 2 months in advance, and the rest are made available by small batches from 9.00 am each day.

These tickets go very quickly and you should book as early as possible.

Voyage Tips - Advice

If you haven’t managed to get your tickets for the house, you can make up for it by taking a guided tour of the former Jewish district.

The tour, which lasts 2 hours, is the best way to learn more about Anne Frank and life at that time:

There are loads of museums in Amsterdam, and some are among the most famous in the world.

The largest park in the city is only a 5-minute walk from the Museumplein.

In Vondelpark, you will find several lakes, well-maintained paths for walking or cycling and play areas for the kids.


F. Canal cruise

To bring this second day to a leisurely end, you should take a canal cruise.

Make yourself comfortable and discover the architecture and traditional houses from a different angle. It really is one of the best things you can do during your 4 days in Amsterdam!

There are different sorts of cruise depending on the type of boat and the duration. I’ve picked out 5 of the most popular for you.

C. Skinny Bridge

Next, you can go for a quick photo opportunity on the famous Skinny Bridge (Magere Brug in Dutch).

Film buffs and lovers of the James Bond series will recognize the bridge used as a set for “Diamonds are Forever” movie.

Dating back to the 17th century, this bridge was originally so narrow that it was hard for 2 people to pass each other, hence its nickname: the Skinny Bridge.

Since then, it’s been widened twice to allow a few more people to cross at the same time, and it can also opens to let the canal boats through.

D. Visit a museum or guided tour of Amsterdam by bike

For the afternoon, you have a few options:

1) Visit a museum.

There are a few museums close to the Skinny Bridge: the Hermitage Amsterdam, Rembrandt House Museum or the Tropenmuseum of ethnography.

If you prefer, you can also return to the Museumplein area to visit one of the museums there.

2) Explore the city by bike: do like locals and grab a bike to discover the hidden gems of the city! The whole city is perfect for this, as there are cycle lanes everywhere.

Actually, as a pedestrian you almost need to look out for the bikes more than for the cars.

4th day – The Best things to do near Amsterdam

On the last day of your 4-day itinerary in Amsterdam, you should go on a day trip to visit Amsterdam’s surroundings!

Here are the 3 best places to visit near Amsterdam:

Option 1: The windmills of Zaanse Schans + Haarlem

Zaanse Schans is for sure the most famous tourist attraction around Amsterdam!

Here, you can visit windmills built next to the water. While in Amsterdam, you will probably have already seen them on a few postcards.

In addition to the windmills, there are shops selling cheese, souvenirs and clogs. It’s touristy, but in a good way because Zaanse Schans has been well developed to maintain tradition.

You can also visit 2 museums there: one dedicated to clock-making (a speciality of the village) and the other to windmills.

There are 3 ways you can get to Zaanse Schans from Amsterdam:

  • Take bus no. 391 or 891 from the central station. There’s one approximately every 15 minutes. You need to purchase your ticket by clicking here!
  • Take the train to Zaanse railway station (20-minute journey)+ a 15-minute walk to the windmills.
  • Take a day trip that includes transport and a guide.

To make it easier for you, I have picked out 3 organized day trips that include a visit to Zaanse Schans windmills, but with slight variations:

You need to book it by clicking on the green button below:

And the other 2 options:

Voyage Tips - Advice

If you want to make your own way to Zaanse Schans, you only need half a day to visit the site. So in the afternoon you should visit Haarlem (just a 15-minute train ride from Amsterdam).

I really loved this charming and picturesque small town, featuring beautiful brick houses and a magnificent church.

Zaanse Schans
Zaanse Schans

Option 2: The Waterland villages

There are 7 traditional and authentic villages you can visit close to Amsterdam. They are known collectively as the “Waterland villages” because they are criss-crossed by canals or situated by the sea.

It’s easy to visit them all in one day thanks to the 10€ Waterland day ticket.

It gives you unlimited use of the buses to get from Amsterdam to the villages (and between all the villages).

You can get the bus routes and timetables from the information centre at the railway station. You can buy the day ticket at any of the automatic ticket machines located in the central station.

Here’s the list of villages you should see:

  • Broek in Waterland and its small wooden houses
  • Monninckendam, where you can visit the Waterlands Museum and Saint Nicolas church
  • Marken: a very pretty small island featuring a harbour and waterside restaurants
  • Volendam: a very charming village lots of small shops and restaurants around the harbour.
  • Edam: a traditional village that’s perfect for a stroll to admire the very beautiful houses.
  • Purmerend: not my favourite because it’s a bit less traditional. It’s more a common small town, you can skip it if you don’t have time.
  • Beemster: designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its polder, a man-made stretch of land obtained by draining water. The Beemster lake was drained from the 17th century using 43 water mills – a true technical feat.

You want to visit several Waterland villages easily?

In that case, you can opt for an organized day trip!

Here are the 3 I recommend, simply click on the links below for more details and to book:


Option 3: Keukenhof (between mid-March and mid-May only)
