Amsterdam’s charm is that its elegant canal houses, largely traffic free roads & relaxed atmosphere give the city centre the air of a large cosmopolitan village rather than a bustling European capital. Around every corner is a picture postcard view, drenched in history and alive with sights, sounds and smells that will captivate the students lucky enough to be on your school trips to Amsterdam.
Amsterdam ticks all of the boxes in terms of educational interests. For art lovers, school trips to Amsterdam offer students an opportunity to really delve into the city’s history with access to world-renowned museums. The most popular include the Amsterdam Museum which depicts the last eight centuries of the cities evolution, using inspiring objects like 700-year-old ‘found’ shoes and the Joods Historisch Museum in the old Jewish quarter.
Business study school trips to Amsterdam offer students the chance to visit diamond houses, ports and refineries, all of which have developed from the country’s history as an important 17th Century trading post.
For other educational activities why not try the infamous Anne Frank House, the actual warehouse and office space where Anne frank and her family hid from the Nazi regime, or for a more light-hearted venture try the NEMO Science centre which exhibits practical examples of how things work.

Efteling World of Wonders
The most popular tourist attraction in the Netherlands and one of the leading theme parks in Europe.
Seated on an undulating platform wearing 3D glasses you get a rather cliched and kitsch round up of what Holland is known for; windmills, cheese, clogs and canals!
A unique experience right in the heart of Amsterdam.

This theme park enjoys a reputation as Europe’s top spot for rollercoasters. There are more than 50 attractions and shows.
