Amsterdam Wish List

I haven't had a holiday in a while but I'm booked next month to go to Amsterdam with a couple of my favourite ladies and I absolutely can't wait! We've only got a few days in the city sadly but I want to fill it with as much as possible - and my early bit of research  shows there is so much to do it's hard to know where to start planning!

Here's a few of the things we hope to do on our trip!

I wont lie, my interest in pancakes is one of the main reasons I'm excited to visit Amsterdam! I can't wait to try some of it's historic pancake houses and delve into a world of exciting and unusual toppings! I even heard about an all-you-can-eat pancake cruise, sounds perfect!

The Anne Frank House
I remember reading The Diary of Anne Frank when I was a teenager, and was fascinated by the life she and her family lived, hiding away in a Dutch attic. I'm sure and visit to the Anne Frank House will be emotional, but also incredibly interesting and educational.

Art Museums
I'll admit that I dont have a lot of art knowledge, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate a nice painting or two. One of the friends I'm travelling with really knows her stuff though: visiting the museums she wants to go to, like the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum, will be like going on a guided tour with an expert!

Despite not really having a head for heights, you can't beat the cityscape views you only get from as high up as possible! A'DAM LOOKOUT will have some of the best views over the city, and you can even 'swing over the edge' on a terrifying looking swing - but I'm not sure I dare go that far!

I know I've not even scratched the surface of great things to do in Amsterdam, but you've gotta start somewhere, right? And I still have plenty of planning time ahead! I'd really love to hear any suggestions you might have for things to do though, any hidden gems to share? Or places to avoid?
