London Stansted to Amsterdam Schipol Airport.

Famous for its canals, cobbled streets, cafes and easy-going atmosphere, the Dutch city of Amsterdam is one of the most popular destinations for a weekend away or a short break.

The low-cost airline easyJet operates up to three flights daily each way between London Stansted and Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. The flight time is just over an hour. Schiphol Airport is one of the busiest in the world and is situated 18 km (11 miles) from the city centre. There is a cheap train service between Schiphol and Centraal station that runs every quarter of an hour and takes around 15-25 minutes. Bus services to the city centre are also plentiful, while taxis can be pre-booked on the airport website at www.schiphol.nl

The old part of Amsterdam is best enjoyed on foot, as you stroll along narrow streets past pavement cafes, souvenir shops and 17th century houses. The city is at its busiest during Easter and the summer months. Spring is also a popular time to visit when the daffodils and tulips are out in bloom.

Places of interest in Amsterdam include:

  • Anne Frank House This is one of Amsterdam’s most well-known tourist attractions with over 80,000 visitors a year. It commemorates the life of Anne Frank, the Jewish teenager who kept a diary while hidden away from the Nazis with her family in the attic of the house. The Frank family was betrayed in 1944 and sent to the concentration camps, where only Anne’s father Otto survived. He returned to the house, discovered the diaries and had them published. Large queues can be expected around midday for this deeply moving museum. Visit annefrank.nl for more information.
  • The Rijksmuseum Opened in 1885, the Rijksmuseum has a collection of works from 17th century Dutch painters including Rembrandt and Vermeer. The most famous piece on display is probably Rembrandt’s ‘The Night Watch’.
  • Van Gogh Museum With around 200 paintings and 500 drawings, the Van Gogh Museum is a must for lovers of the famous Dutch master. Some of his best works are on show here including ‘The Potato-eaters’, ‘The Yellow House in Arles’ and ‘Starry Night’.
  • Rembrandt House Art lovers are spoilt for choice in Amsterdam, and Rembrandt House celebrates the life of one of Holland’s most famous artists who lived in this house between 1639 and 1658. Highlights include a collection of Rembrandt’s work and a reconstruction of his 17th century studio.
