Tailor-made School Trips to Amsterdam

Reasons to Visit
Places to Stay
  • Overview

    With elegant canal houses, largely traffic free roads & 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 students, a visit to Amsterdam presents an opportunity to visit some world renowned museums and see many paintings by the Dutch masters, Rembrandt, Vermeer and of course Van Gogh.

    For more general interest why not try visiting the home of Anne Frank where she 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.
