Center

" You might not expect it, but even in Amsterdam's crowded city center, you can easily get lost in its beautiful tiny streets. "

Femke Dam, our local from time to momo Amsterdam

Amsterdam owes much of its fame to the canal district, which was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2010. During the 17th century, monumental buildings were built with large inner courtyards, transforming the Kalverstraat from a muddy livestock market into a chic shopping street. Today it's home to the usual chains, but there are also some hidden gems nearby, such as the Begijnhof and Amsterdam Museum. 
The world's most famous red light district, the Wallen, forms the oldest part of the city. It includes Amsterdam's Chinatown, full of cozy cafés and eateries. Despite being overrun by drunken bachelor parties, this area is a must-see.
