Summer in Amsterdam by bike
You probably did know that the bike is one of the most popular ways of transportation in The Netherlands. Dutchies are almost always on their bike to go places. Yes, even if it’s pouring rain! As a tourist you’re able to rent a bike on almost every corner in the city center. Discovering Amsterdam by bike is a fun experience. If you can ride the bike at least.. It can get very crowded in the city, so be aware of that! Also, Dutch people are very much used on riding a bike and during the traffic jam after work, they want to go home as fast as possible. By the way, did you know that Amsterdam has over 900.000 bikes in the city? That’s a 100.000 more than the amount of inhabitants of the city.
Another active way to discover the city, is to do this by foot. Yes, you have a tram going every direction. But during the Summer in Amsterdam it’s worth the walk. You can wonder around in the old areas of the city. You’ll truly discover the daily lifestyle of the inhabitants. Visit the Jordaan for a typical Amsterdam neighbourhood. When walking around in the different neighbourhoods you’ll see all the differences between them. Different architecture, different people. You can always take the tram back to your hotel if it was a long walk!
