Named after the dam in the River Amstel which is found at Dam Square, Amsterdam is one of the most iconic cities in Europe. Annually it attracts more than four million visitors many of them enticed by the city’s relaxed attitude to recreational drugs and legalised red light district but just as many come to see the historic canals, the Anne Frank House, the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum.

"Amsterdam is the capital and largest city in the Netherlands with 1.36 million inhabitants and makes up the northern part of the Randstad which with 6.7 million is the sixth largest metropolitan area in Europe."

From its humble beginnings as a fishing village in the 12th century to being the hub of the world’s Superpower during the Dutch Golden Age of the 17th century, Amsterdam is still a major player on the world stage with 7 of the world’s largest companies having their headquarters there including Philips and ING.
