3 - 5 Days
If you are planning on spending 3 to 5 days in Amsterdam, refer to the itinerary below. For those with only 4 days in Amsterdam, you can also consider swapping between day 4 and day 5 activities on your final day.
If you plan on spending only 1 to 2 days in Amsterdam, use the separate 1 – 2 Day itinerary here.
Note: None of the Amsterdam itineraries include a visit to the Tulip Festival (one of numerous things that Amsterdam is famous for). This is because the Tulip Festival runs only for a handful of days in the year (primarily in April). If you happen to be in Amsterdam around this time, tailor your itinerary accordingly and include a visit to the Tulip Festival to see the flowers in full bloom. And regardless of time of year, definitely try the different flavors of Amsterdam Cheese!
