3) Wake Me Up When I’m Famous

 

As a city, renowned for its artistic flair with the likes of the Moco Museum and Rijksmuseum to visit, Amsterdam also offers an array of street art around the city with its most recognised as the ‘Wake me up when I’m famous’ wall. A blogger’s delight yet also something we all would like to come true, right (or rich at least)?

4) Polaberry

 

When strolling round the canals, whether you decide to walk or jump on the bandwagon and cycle, a good place to stop for a sweet treat is Polaberry. The chocolate boutique offers chocolate covered strawberries, speciality coffee and cakes!

5) Tulips

 

There is nothing more quintessentially Dutch than tulips, so when wandering round Amsterdam, it’s hard to miss these symbolic flowers. The best place to buy some tulips is from Amsterdam’s most famous florist ‘Bluemenmarkt’.
