At first glance, horseshoe-shaped Amsterdam is a breeze to traverse and the offerings seem obvious. But if you look closely, you'll find hidden spots in the maze of canals and burgeoning neighborhoods just a short bike ride from the city center. This archetype of liberalism and diversity keeps reinventing itself.
The Monocle Travel Guide to Amsterdam is an ode to this bustling European metropolis, featuring all our favorite spots (well, as many as will fit in). We guide you through the cobblestone streets to the best independent chain stores, recommend restaurants that cater to your every need and highlight the coziest brown cafes for a beer or two. We'll take you on a tour of the Dutch masters and the works of later generations of artists and direct you to an attractive mix of classical and contemporary architecture in the waterfront landscape.
