Amsterdam is the city of bicycles! As soon as you set
foot in the Dutch capital, there's no escaping them. And why would you
want to? Cycling is the perfect way to get around such charming and
compact city. Amsterdam is virtually unique in having all the
advantages of a big city - culture, history, good food, entertainment
and extensive public transport - but with relatively few of the
drawbacks. The city is small, there are plenty of quiet spots where
you can kick back and relax and, thanks to its canals, it has
relatively little traffic. Yet, it still has plenty to offer!

its tourist attractions to the workings of the city council can
