First time visitors will want to include the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Anne Frank’s House for starters. Many people book flight tickets to Amsterdam for its laid­back and liberal approach to life, which is reflected in its eclectic cafe culture and nightclubs, suffice to say, go with an open mind! Peak season in Amsterdam is concentrated on the summer months of July and August when the weather is warmer, reaching temps around the low 20Cs if you’re lucky.
