Amsterdam is a city with an incredibly wide range of reputations, making it an ideal destination for almost any kind of traveler. Whether you’re looking for culture, history or debauchery, this most famous of Dutch cities has something for everyone and that applies to companions too. Amsterdam is a beautiful city with plenty for those who are looking for a touch of seduction on their weekend away. Here are some of the sensual activities you could enjoy on your couple’s weekend in Amsterdam:
Canalside Walk by Night
The canals are Amsterdam’s best feature of course and there are some stunning sights to see as you stroll hand-in-hand alongside them as the sun goes down and the lights come on, particularly in the grachtengordel area of the city, where you can find the most beautiful architecture and the bridges adorned with fairy lights. There are few more romantic things you can do anywhere than this.
Nighttime is also an excellent time to go on a canal boat cruise for the same reasons as mentioned above, but they’re enjoyable at any time of the day and you have the choice between hopping on one of the regular boats or booking a salon boat to yourselves where you can dine as you cruise without anyone else spoiling the romantic mood you’ve set.
A Bike Ride for Two
Along with the canals, Amsterdam is famous for its bicycles and there’s something inherently romantic about the idea of setting out along the cobbled streets with your companion on a two-seater bike. It is an excellent way to explore the city.
Check out the Floating Flower Market
The Bloemenmarkt is the only floating flower market in the world and has been open since 1862, so it’s an excellent place to visit and find some floral additions to the romantic ambience of your hotel room.
Enjoy Some Dutch Culture
There’s two options here. You can enjoy some culture or some ‘culture’, depending on your preferences. The former you can find at the Rijksmuseum where you can see masterpieces by the likes of Rembrandt, Hals and Vermeer, enjoying sharing the beauty of art with your companion. The latter, well, you can find all of that in the red light district. Whatever seduction means to you, you’ll find it on your weekend in Amsterdam.
