While we’re sad that summer’s almost over, we’re also happy that the best season to take city trips is starting again: fall! In fall, you still have warm and sunny days, but it’s not too hot for days full of sightseeing and exploring new cities either. A destination that is on the list for our next trips is definitely Amsterdam. It is also known as “small Venice” due to it’s many rivers and canals that flow through town and word has it that Amsterdam is one of the most beautiful cities that Europe has to offer for a short getaway. While researching for this post, we came across so many great, unique and stylish hotels, but we think we’ve managed to narrow it down to the best options – but see for yourself! Pack your bags, book your flight and off you go to amazing Amsterdam!
