At the beginning of the 12th century, Amsterdam was only a fishing village due to its location near the Amstel. In the 17th century the city developed into an economic center. Due to the numerous canals and harbors that Amsterdam has, it became a commercial center over time and it was believed that New York would one day be as big as Amsterdam economically and that is why New York was then called New Amsterdam.
The name Amsterdam comes from the area of the canalized river "Amstelland", former name. In the period between 1500 and 1600 the city reached both economic and cultural dimensions and was called the "Golden Age". In addition, many canals and bridges were built at this time.
The Dutch capital Amsterdam is one of the most modern cities in Europe and is located in the north of the country. With over 7 million inhabitants, this city is one of the largest metropolises in Europe. Amsterdam is selected as a travel destination in all four seasons, so we recommend that you check out the best flight deals on our website for your Amsterdam flight.
History tells us that the city has always been at war with the waters on which it rests. Rumors that Amsterdam will one day stay underwater also persist. We are sure that certain precautions are taken to prevent this from happening, but even so, do not postpone the Amsterdam vacation that you have been dreaming of for a long time.
With immigration, especially in the 20th century, Amsterdam has become a very open country and around 180 nationalities live here. Despite the moderate climate, it rains a lot. If you visit the city in winter, you can skate on the canals and in summer enjoy the numerous parks.

Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport is Europe's third largest airport. The price of the flight tickets Amsterdam change depending on the desired travel time. We therefore recommend that you book your tickets well in advance. Trains and trams are preferred as public transport within the city. Bicycles are also considered to be the most popular means of transport. The airport is about 9 km away from the centre and hundreds of tourists choose the most varied of transport connections every year.
If you want to choose a cheap and comfortable means of transport, we recommend the trains, which run at 10 minute intervals. Amsterdam Centraal Station, the Zuid commercial center and the Rai conference center can be reached in 15-25 minutes.
Another way to get to the city center from the airport is by bus. During the day, bus 197 runs every 10 minutes and the number N97 is used for night traffic, which does not run that often.
The taxi offers you a quick and comfortable connection. You can also reserve a taxi in advance for a cheaper price.
