School Trips to Amsterdam

With elegant canal houses, largely traffic free roads and a relaxed atmosphere Amsterdam has 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 bound to captivate your students.

In terms of educational interest, it ticks all the boxes. For Art & Design students a visit to Amsterdam presents an opportunity to visit some World-Renowned Art Museums and see many paintings by the Dutch masters, Rembrandt, Vermeer and of course Van Gogh. Business & Economics students can visit the Stock Exchange which provides an interactive, educational guided tour. Amsterdam is rich in history including the Home of Anne Frank where she and her family hid from the Nazi regime and for Science students there is the Nemo Science Centre, the Science Park and Faculty of Science.

To get the feel and vibe of the city you must go on an Amsterdam Canal Cruise and for a bit of fun and rollercoasters take a side trip to the Walibi Holland Theme Park or the Efteling World of Wonders.

Top Tips from Our Travel Experts

"Amsterdam is a vibrant city well known for its art, culture, and abundance of charm, making it a brilliant place for a school visit. There is a myriad of impressive museums worth exploring; from the extensive Rijksmuseum, to the dedicated Van Gogh Museum, the Nemo Science Museum or the Anne Frank House too, the educational value is clear. With its elaborate system of canals, the best way to really soak up the key sights and general atmosphere of this beautiful city is with a relaxing canal cruise, usually lasting about an hour and including an audio guide. One of the most appealing aspects of Amsterdam is how easy it is to get around, with most visits easily within walking distance of each other, all connected by the intricate public transport system available throughout."
