Amsterdam Schiphol Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

One of the most interesting capitals in Europe, Amsterdam is deservedly a very popular destination for a city break. Historic and full of atmosphere, it is home to fun museums, an active cultural life, and plenty of things to do for all types of visitors. These are three of Amsterdam’s most interesting attractions:

  • Rijksmuseum. Arguably the most famous museum in the Netherlands, the Rijksmuseum houses more than one million pieces of art. The most viewed among them are world-famous paintings by Dutch masters such as Rembrandt, Vermeer, and Bosch. If you liked the Rijksmuseum, two other must-visit places include the nearby Van Gogh Museum and the Stedelijk Museums dedicated to contemporary art.
  • Brouwersgracht. Located in the formerly working-class neighborhood of Jordaan that has seen a lot of development over the last couple of decades, Brouwersgracht, or the Brewer’s Canal, is often mentioned as one of the most beautiful streets in the city. Nowadays considered quite upscale and chic, it is home to a large number of galleries, cafeterias, and renovated buildings. You can even enjoy the scenic views by taking a boat trip along the street. Make sure to check out the historic warehouses at the northern end.
  • Natura Artis Magistra. Also known as the Royal Zoo, this large complex in central Amsterdam also includes botanical gardens, a planetarium, an aquarium, and an art collection, making it one of the most fun places in the city to visit for the whole family. Opened in 1838, it is one of the oldest zoos in Europe and nowadays is also involved in some conservation work. Make sure to also check out the surprisingly fun Museum of Microbes, branded as the first of its kind in the world.

Amsterdam is not the best place for driving... busy and some roads narrow. We rented mostly to "get out of town" & back again.

Good overall experience and good value for money - just worth checking how far away the car hire place is from the airport so you can plan your time. Driving itself was relatively straightforward and the roads were easy to navigate.
