Amsterdam in the Netherlands is the gateway to the Rhine River, which winds through Germany and connects with other major European rivers like the Main and Danube. Built around the dam of the Amstel River, from which it gets its name, Amsterdam is a city alive with culture, art, and quaint architecture. Numerous canals also span the Netherlands into Belgium that are excellent for exploring charming historical cities, windmills, and expansive flower farms. As the capital city of the Netherlands, it is home to several art and history museums, like Zaanse Schans and the Van Gogh Museum. In the evenings, you can enjoy a leisurely tour of the city on the canals that wind their way throughout enchanting Amsterdam.
