Book flights to Amsterdam

Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands and is famously known for its canals. Nicknamed "The Venice of the North", the city has over 100 canals winding their way through the city centre. These canals were originally built to control flooding and for transportation. Today, they are a popular tourist attraction and a great way to see the city by boat. The city is located on the coast of the IJsselmeer, a large lake, and is connected to the North Sea by a short canal. This location, along with the Netherlands' generally flat geography, has meant that much of Amsterdam is below sea level.
