Throughout our Free Tour of Amsterdam, you'll discover the history of the most liberal city in the world, starting from Dam Square, the oldest and most important square in town. Our route takes you to visit some of the most important monuments and buildings in Amsterdam:
Our guide will take us to the Royal Palace. During the Dutch Golden age, this area was home to the Stock Market, now the Royal Palace is used by the royal family for official receptions and state visits. Located in the famous Dam Square, it is very close to another one of our stops: the National Monument, an enormous white obelisk built in honour of the fallen in World War II.
Next, we will walk towards the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church), one of the most important churches in Amsterdam. It was built in the 15th century. Today, it hosts a great number of cultural exhibits and concerts. We’ll also experience the peace and quiet that reign over The Begijnhof, a Medieval place of residence for a community of semi-religious single women who wanted to live pious lives. Here we will find a clandestine church that was built behind a few of the houses after the Catholic religion was banned in the 16th century.
We will continue the tour by visiting the Flower Market, with its shops spread out along the canal filling it with life and colour. Fun fact: it is the only floating flower market in the world, and one of the most fragrant places of the city. The old Jewish quarter, is where Rembrandt’s old house is located. It has now become one of the most popular quarters in Amsterdam thanks to the Waterlooplein market.
The tour ends close to Amsterdam's Central Station, a hundred-year-old construction built on three artificial islands in the Neo-Renaissance style, and the busiest train station in the city. These are only some places you'll discover on this two and a half hour tour around the most iconic areas of Amsterdam, led by an expert English-speaking guide that may modify the route if necessary.
If you want to discover more be sure to consider our Alternative Free Tour of Amsterdam, that takes you to the western end of the city, or our Red-Light District Guided Tour, to learn about Amsterdam's vices and unique regulations.
The Netherlands has been a fishing nation for a very long time, and traditional Dutch villages such as Marken, Volendam, Edam or Zaanse Schans, located just 20 km away from Amsterdam, still preserve this heritage. If you want to discover the Dutch countryside, with its traditional houses, windmills and protestant churches, our Amsterdam Village's Tour is made just for you!
