Amsterdam is a large city and a major tourist destination, so you can visit it all year round. However, in winter the days are short (8 hours daylight around Christmas), and the weather may be too cold to walk around the city comfortably, let alone cycle. Some things are seasonal: the bulb fields flower only in the spring, and Queen's Day (Koninginnedag) is always on 30 April, unless that is a Sunday. Queen Beatrix was in fact born on 31 January, but since January is too cold, the celebrations are held on the birthday of her mother Juliana. The color of Queen's Day is orange, symbolizing national pride in the royal House of Orange-Nassau.

Organized groups of travelers between 10 and 25 persons can take advantage of a group transport ticket.

Head to the tourist office and pick up a one, two or three-day Amsterdam Card (Amsterdam Pass) for free unlimited travel on all public transport and including free entrance to most museums and attractions.

If you are a victim of crime go to one of the police stations. They will take a statement, cancel your credit cards in case of theft and provide you with useful telephone numbers and addresses

Mind your belongings carefully, and leave your valuables in a safety deposit box or safe at the hotel. Pickpockets are typically active in crowded places, during the summer season and on the train traveling between Amsterdam Central Station and Schiphol Airport
