2013 - The Year of Amsterdam
With a population of many nationalities Amsterdam exudes the charm of a cosmopolitan city, where it is quite normal to find the Flower Market directly next to Indonesian cuisine. If you have an appetite for culture, you are better off in this city than anywhere else in the world. Why? Amsterdam has the world's highest density of museums. Here it is just a stone's throw from the brand new Eye-Film Museum to the immortal classics of Rembrandt at the Rijksmuseum. But the newly opened Maritime Museum, and the interactive museum NEMO with its interactive experiments are worth a visit. Of course, smart shoppers will find bargains in Amsterdam: the huge colorful weekly markets benefit from the multicultural population of the city and seduce the traveller with many scents, colors and flavors. Numerous small shops, for example in the nine streets as well as the Haarlemmerstraat and in the Haarlemmerdijk, invite you to explore.
