Amsterdam is full of contradictions. This Dutch city has a marvelous history, and ships have sailed from Amsterdam and Holland since the 1200s. At the same time, Amsterdam is an exciting youthful city, offering a little of everything for the visitor. Amsterdam is the home of world-renowned art museums, the World War hideout of Anne Frank, and a famous (or infamous) Red Light District. It is a popular port of call as well as a embarkation or disembarkation point for northern European cruises. I've included numerous pictures in our Amsterdam photo album.
