Map Amsterdam

Amsterdam is located in the western part of Holland in the province of Noord-Holland. The city is the capital of The Netherlands and is the largest city in The Netherlands with about 750,000 inhabitants.

Amsterdam has a large historic city centre, dating largely from the seventeenth century. A series of concentric, semi-circular "grachten" (canals) were dug in that time around the old city centre. Along the canals houses and warehouses for the merchants were built.
