Some must-sees are the Anne...

Some must-sees are the Anne Frank House (on Prinsengracht), the Vondelpark (especially in spring and summer), the Stedelijk Museum and the Museumplein. Also, a boat trip is great, since you can explore the city from the canals and get some additional information. For the low budget travellers: for about 2 EUR, you buy a round trip ticket on tram 20, that makes a circle through town and passes most of the interesting parts of Amsterdam. You can hop off whenever you see something that asks for further exploration and hop back on whenever you want (within a certain time frame).

Also, a stroll along the canals (preferably early in the morning) is something that I would really recommend. Try to look upwards as much as possible, the houses have beautiful details.
Amsterdam as a whole is pretty unique: the old canal houses, the open mindedness of the people, the great variety of arts and culture, the parks, everything! And for some of you, the red light district and the smoking, but be sure to see more of this city!

Ice Skating on the Canals...

Ice Skating on the Canals happens very rarely. Winters in A'dam just don't get cold enough on average. This is actually an outdoor skating rink behind the Rijksmuseum and it's kept frozen by large, noisy chillers. The music was blaring loud enough on the 'plein that they were hardly noticeable though.
If you squint and use your imagination, you can pretend they're skating on the canals. Heck, if you take your picture carefully enough you may be able to convince your friends back home that it is a canal!

Stedelijk Museum contains art...

Stedelijk Museum contains art of the late 19th and 20th centuries, with changing exhibitions every few months.
While we were there in March('01) Dennis Hopper had a large exhibition of photos, paintings, montage art, and 'constructions'. By far his photography is the most interesting (and accomplished) of the stuff. It's remarkable the places he seemed to find himself in throughout the turbulent 60's.
