I AMsterdam

Amsterdam is the largest city and the capital of the Netherlands with a population of 790,654 within city limits, and located in the province of North Holland in the west of the country.

Amsterdam’s name is derived from Amstelredamme, indicative of the city’s origin: a dam in the river Amstel.

The 17th-century canals of Amsterdam, located in the heart of Amsterdam, were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in July 2010.

Amsterdam is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, receiving more than 4.63 million international visitors annually; this is excluding the 16 million day trippers visiting the city every year.

Two thirds of the hotels are located in the city’s centre. Hotels with 4 or 5 stars contribute 42% of the total beds available and 41% of the overnight stays in Amsterdam.

Either on business or holiday do not miss the chance of exploring this amazing city.
