Be the change you wish to see in Amsterdam
Amsterdam & Fairbnb.coop
Welkom in Amsterdam-the historic and breathtakingly beautiful capital of The Netherlands.
Once a quiet fishing village on the banks of the Amstel river, Amsterdam rose to power in the 17th century becoming the epicenter of the global economy. It was at this time that the cityscape developed into the Amsterdam we recognize today full of cozy canals and historic architecture.
In addition to enjoying the aesthetic of Amsterdam’s unique cityscape, there is also plenty to do around the city. Amsterdam is home to several famous museums and cultural centers such as the Van Gogh Museum, the Anne Frank house, and the Rijksmuseum. And of course, the city has a wide range of diverse culinary options-from traditional Dutch delicacies to vegan cafes.
It’s no wonder that today, Amsterdam is a popular tourist destination with approximately 19 million visitors every year.
In the coming months we will help you discover lesser known places around the city to ease the pressure on the most tourified neighborhoods and where you can contribute more to the local economy.
