Visit also the Ribe Vikinge Center, a fun outdoor museum where you will meet the Vikings themselves!

With more bicycles than people, cycling is an integral part of Amsterdam's DNA. Hop on and see the city like the locals do! Winding waterways, idyllic bridges and historic buildings - one of the most memorable ways to truly see Amsterdam is from the canals.
