To help you make the most of your luxury trip to Amsterdam, here are three tips that you may find useful.

The sites to be privileged in your visits

Beautiful, modern and dynamic, major cities such as Miami or Tokyo are among the preferred destinations for travellers to enjoy a luxury trip.

Yet Amsterdam is an equally exciting city that lends itself equally well to a stay of comfort and discovery. To ensure that your trip to the city is as enjoyable as possible, make sure you choose your itinerary carefully.

To this extent, the monuments to be privileged during your exploration of the city are, mainly the museums. To start your visit, go to Museumplein, the famous museum district.

Here you will discover some of the country’s leading museums, such as the Van Gogh Museum and the Leidseplein Museum.

On your way to the medieval centre you will discover in the narrow streets of the city a large number of impressive shops, magnificent Dutch house facades, 17th century cafés and fabulous gourmet restaurants.

At the end of the day, why not head to one of the many casinos in the locality to challenge the Dutch poker players.

Stay in a luxury hotel

As well as your choice of itinerary, your accommodation is another essential consideration for a successful luxury getaway in the Dutch capital.

For maximum comfort during your stay, choose one of the city’s most prestigious hotels, such as the Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam.

Located in a residential area in the old centre of Amsterdam, this hotel offers comfort and refinement through its discreetly luxurious décor and Guerlain Spa.
From each of its rooms you will enjoy stunning views over the garden, the canal and the city rooftops. But of course, in this opulent city, there is no shortage of luxury hotels.

The Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam, Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam and the Royal Penthouse Amsterdam are all sumptuous establishments where you can stay in luxurious rooms or suites and enjoy top-class facilities.

Shopping in luxury boutiques

A luxury trip to the city of Amsterdam wouldn’t be complete without shopping in some of its luxury boutiques.

Indeed, the city offers a myriad of possibilities for the pleasure of the shopping or window-shopping enthusiast. For example, the P.C. Hooftstraat is the home of famous luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Dior, Prada, Jimmy Choo and Dolce & Gabbana.

The place has been awarded as one of the most beautiful shopping streets in the world due to its sublime elegant buildings and peaceful atmosphere.
But Amsterdam is also famous for the diamond trade. Here you will discover a selection of the most exquisite and rare diamonds in the world.
