Small, but impressive: Amsterdam is truly an exceptional European city. The Dutch capital counts only about 860,000 inhabitants but can definitely keep up with the other megacities of the world. If you think about Amsterdam the first things that will pop into your mind will probably be the beautiful romantic canals, the red light quarter De Wallen and of course the famous, and infamous, coffee shops - the cannabis cafes better known for selling buds than brewing beans. Apart from that Amsterdam is home to numerous museums, famous sights like the Koninklijk Paleis or the Oude Kerk, and a wild night life. The compact size of the city makes it easy to experience a lot in a relatively short time and to reach every destination by public transport or, as most of the inhabitants of Amsterdam do, by bike (or fiets as it is called in Dutch). The cool and hip Amsterdam atmosphere makes the city a very popular travel destination for people from all around the world especially students. With over 7 million foreign tourists Amsterdam occupies the fifth place of the most visited cities in the world. Every year on King’s Day (Koningsdag) the city transforms to a huge festival including live music, street markets, lots of oranje decoration and even more parties and fun.
