Hortus Botanicus

Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam is a soothing green oasis in the heart of the city. It is one of the world’s oldest botanical gardens, with as many as 4.000 plants in its greenhouses from all corners of the world. Special fact: the garden was founded in 1638 as a place where pharmacists and doctors were trained and was named 'Hortus Medicus'.

A’DAM Toren

With 22 floors the A’DAM Tower literally is an eye-catcher. Here you can find several bars, restaurants and a lookout that offers an impressive view over the city. One of the highlights in the tower is the Lookout Swing, where you can swing above the skyline of Amsterdam.

Skinny Bridge

The narrow wooden drawbridge is perhaps the most photographed highlight of Amsterdam. The bridge was built around 1670 across the Amstel and was then even "skinnier" than it is now. Before it was replaced in 1871, it was meant for pedestrians only and people could barely pass each other. Especially in the evening, when it is beautifully lit, it is worth a visit!
