While in port in Amsterdam, you can explore the bustling city and the peaceful countryside surrounding it. The Netherlands is known for its cycling culture, pretty windmills, historically important sites like the Anne Frank House, and impressive art museums, such as the Van Gogh Museum.
In Bruges, you’ll be able to admire some of Europe’s finest gothic architecture. From 12th-century churches to the intricate 15th-century City Hall and the famed Belfry, this city exudes living history at every step along its cobbled streets. While you’re there, remember to sample the handmade chocolate truffles for which the city is famed.

Dine on fresh salmon and delight yourself with a glass of aquavit in the stylish, harborside Aker Brygge neighborhood.
Europe’s fun, friendly, northern port city of Amsterdam is a fabulous place to explore, with plenty of great neighborhoods, museums, and shopping. Wander the canal ring around De Wallen, the medieval city center, to admire the beautiful Dutch homes that line the water. Visit the Royal Palace and behold over 200 years of opulent and regal history from one of Europe’s still existing monarchies. Snack on a sweet stroopwafel in the hip and central neighborhood of Jordaan, or sip on a traditional genever drink as you prepare for the day’s adventures.
The small city of Bruges is like a living museum that pays homage to both the middle ages and 400-year Gothic period with almost unmatched precision. Conquer the narrow and winding steps of the Belfry for the best bird’s-eye view of the city as you perch on its 13th-century balcony. Tour the Basilica of the Holy Blood with its colorful Renaissance facade, and see the precious crystal vial that’s said to have the blood of Christ stained on a cloth within it. Remember, too, to make time for a classic Belgian lunch of moules frites – mussels with fries.
