    Rent a bike and cruise through the narrow streets in the Center of Amsterdam. There are a lot of beautiful old houses and the ambiance is great.

    You can also see Amsterdam from a canalbike. A great experience!

    Of course the Red-light district. Particularly in the weekends it is very crowdy overthere, but worth while. you find an ambiance there that you never find elsewhere!

    Sure, Amsterdam has coffeeshops and the red-light district.
    What I enjoy most, though is the fabulous architecture. Thjere's the 17th century warehouses, early 20th century 'amsterdamse School' organic style, and modern buildings.
    Rent a bike to get around!

    Well, OK, so I didn't quite manage to do it, but that's no reason why you shouldn't.

    And I am not referring to the red light district!

    I'm talking about having a ride (on a bicycle).

    It will cost you under 6 Euros (the biggest hire bicycle place is right beside Grand Centraal Station), you need to pay a 100 Euro deposit (credit card will do) and you must have ID (driver's licence or passport).

    I only had a credit card and they refused to give me a bike (so I bought a day ticket on the trams for roughly the same price).

    Anyways, you gotta hire a bike, ride along the canals with the wind in your hair and act Dutch.

    It's totally flat, there are bicycle lanes everywhere (watch out for pedestrians - they sometimes treat the bike lanes like pavements).
    Its cheap, a quick and easy way to see Amsterdam - and its something you can tell your Grandkiddies about.

    If you look closely there is a bike in the pic

    Cycling in the Netherlands

    After doing all the other 'must sees' in Amsterdam, and you're museumed out, then get on your bike and hit the country cycle paths. It only takes a few minutes ride to get out of the city and there is a fantastic network of cycle paths to choose from and there are no hills!. I took a route out into the 'waterlands' today and as well as getting in some great scenery of local villages and the odd windmill, I had some good exercise.

    riding a bicycle - almost every amsterdamian do it everyday! There are thousands of bicycles here. Parkings for bicycles, roads exclusive for bicycles, priority in crosswords for bicycles, renting agencies (a bicycle) - real paradise for funs of bicycle.
    Could anybody explain me why, to hell, all these bicycles are black and look like were 20 years old?

    Everywhere you look there will be bicycles around the central station. It is a common way to get around. Beware of the bike paths if you are a walker.

    To see how Bicycle mad the Dutch are, its worth going for a walk around Centraal Stasion to see the thousands upon thousands of bicycles parked there, you will never see so many in one space again.

    Thousands of Bikes!!!
