Visit wonderful Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands

Amsterdam is about 30 minutes away by car from the park. Amsterdam used to be called Amstelredam, but the inhabitants called the city Mokum. The city was named after a dam on the Amstel River in the 13th century.

Amsterdam was officially granted city rights in 1300 and quickly developed into a prosperous trading city. During the Golden Age, Amsterdam was one of the largest and most important cities in the world.

Today these glory days can be seen in the Canal Belt and the many impressive mansions. Tourists from all over the world still come to Amsterdam to visit the Rijksmuseum, the Anne Frank House, the Van Gogh Museum and many other places of interest.

Internationally, the city is also known for the exuberant Pride Parade, Sail Amsterdam, the excessive Kings Day celebration and the coffee shops.
