Amsterdam, capital and tourist jewel of the Netherlands... It is impossible not to succumb to the charm of this capital city set on the waves, a tangle of large canals with changing waters, like so many veins flowing towards its heart. In the Venice of the North, the weather changes as quickly as the colours of the Amstel, the clear sky follows the fog, the storm arrives without a word. A capricious and contrasting city, both modern and classic, wise and wild, conservative and innovative, it will captivate any visitor who takes the trouble to really discover it, beyond the clichés and clichés. Amsterdam currently seems to be at a crossroads, its historic centre has never been so beautiful with the Rijksmuseum as a symbol of its revival. The city seems to enjoy a prosperity in contrast with the sometimes more difficult daily life of its inhabitants. If some fear that "their" Amsterdam is becoming a museum city, the A'dam Toren, the city's newest attraction, seems to be another symbol of the city's boundless ambition. The Anne Frank House and the Van Gogh Museum are other must-sees in the city. There is also an increase in the number of peripheral districts, the Jordan and the west, the north (with the NDSM district in particular) and the east will probably be the subject of a separate district section in the near future with the new district IJburg, a real city of the future.
