Experience Your Best Amsterdam Vacation

The capital and largest city of the Netherlands, Amsterdam, has grown into a center for cultural and financial success. With a population of seven million people, the city is designed for catering to a diverse scene and virtually guarantees you will find plenty to hold your interest.

Amsterdam, a city for everyone, has a little bit of everything rolled into one area. Tour the beautiful Keukenhof Gardens to see famous Dutch tulips, or go on self-guided tours through the old Heineken factory. Whether its beauty or hipness you desire on your vacation, your Amsterdam experience begins with booking your travel on Orbitz.com.

  • Best Time to Go

    Amsterdam vacations cover any season of the year. The most popular is during April, when the tulips in the famous tulip gardens and the fields surrounding the city are in glorious full bloom. Amsterdam Travel fares and accommodation costs will be more expensive at this time of year. There are flower festivals all through the summer, and the historic cheese markets don't open until June. Biking is very popular around the city and is good for any weather pattern, as are the festivals. Visit around the end of April to help celebrate Queen's Day, a national holiday, or visit in September for the very industrial and experimental Robodock Arts Festival.

  • Because of its location near large bodies of water and its large population, Amsterdam's winters are typically mild with frost but have little snow. The summers are warm, with average highs staying below 80 degrees Fahrenheit, making it a pleasant time to visit and a popular time for tourism. Summer also has a variety of festivals to attend, including the Holland Festival and the Gay Pride parade. If you plan to see the tulips in full bloom, plan to visit during the spring. Regardless of your timing, book your travel ahead of schedule with Orbitz.com to get the best accommodations available in the best parts of town.
