Experience city and country life in the Government of Amsterdam

Amsterdam has long been one of Europe's most visited municipalities, thanks in large part to the Dutch capital city's iconic ring of canals, beautiful Golden Age architecture, world-renowned museums, and the relaxed, live-and-let-live way of life. No less charming are the small towns and villages that make up the rest of the municipality, with endless fields of green criss-crossed by bubbling streams and a rural landscape dotted by windmills. Government of Amsterdam vacation rentals are your home away from home, and perfect choices for urban getaways and countryside retreats alike.

Old and new worlds collide in Government of Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a visual feast, replete with some of the best traditional and modern Dutch architecture. Take a relaxing cruise in one of the city's 17th-century canals and drink in the sight of tall, narrow townhouses as you drift by. Or join one of the many walking tours of the city to see the heritage buildings in Dam Square and avant-garde buildings like the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ performing arts center and the postmodern EYE Filmmuseum. Go off the beaten path and explore outlying neighborhoods like Osdorp, where there's a petting zoo and an award-winning Tuesday outdoor market.

Windmills, watercolors, and wonderful nights

Windmills make up a large part of how people all over the world think of the Netherlands, and Amsterdam has a few. Venture out of the city to see the breathtaking Zaanse Schans windmills or the Sloten Windmill, the only one that's open to visitors. Equally appealing is the huge variety of art and culture to be found all over the city. Many Government of Amsterdam vacation rentals are just a hop, skip, and a jump away from priceless works of art in the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, and Stedelijk Museum. Come nightfall, wander the alleys of De Wallen, the famous red-light district, or test your luck in Holland Casino Amsterdam.

Blowing hot and cold in Government of Amsterdam

Summers and winters are generally mild, though there are days when it can get extremely hot or cold. Amsterdam receives the highest number of visitors in summer, from June to August, when the sun shines for more than 200 hours every month. Average temperatures in winter—from December to March— are in the high 30s, though sometimes it can get cold enough for the canals to ice over, so bring your skates just in case! The tulips come into bloom in April and May, when days see both sunshine and spring showers. Autumn temperatures range from a low of 39 to a high of 65; it's wettest and windiest in October and November.

Water, water everywhere

With the North Sea just 14 miles away and more than 60 miles of canals—not to mention some parts being below sea level—living close to the water is part and parcel of everyday life in Amsterdam, an experience you'll get with Government of Amsterdam vacation rentals. The most famous canals are the Prinsengracht, Keizersgracht, and Herengracht, and with other canals in the network, connect to the Amstel River. Surrounding the city are polders, or flat terrain hemmed in by dikes. Nature reserves such as De Oeverlanden offer the perfect opportunity for bird-watching, and in some cases, for swimming and sunbathing.
