Situated next to the world-renowned Van Gogh Museum in the Museumplein area, the Stedelijk Museum houses an impressive collection of contemporary art. Inside its permanent exhibit, travelers will find approximately 700 pieces by artists like Piet Mondrian and Roy Lichtenstein. Additionally, the property features a year-round specialty exhibit about pinball machines, as well as temporary collections that may include items like modern sculptures and documentaries.

According to past visitors, the Stedelijk Museum is a go-to spot for contemporary art, especially if you can't score a ticket to the adjacent Van Gogh Museum. After all, the facility boasts a few Van Gogh pieces, plus works by Picasso and Andy Warhol, among other well-known artists. Some previous museumgoers lamented the high entrance fee, but those with the I amsterdam City Card receive complimentary admission.

Travelers without an I amsterdam City Card who are 19 or older must purchase a ticket: Entry costs 18.50 euros (less than $21) for adults and 10 euros (about $11) for students. Admission covers access to all temporary and permanent exhibits, a gift shop, a restaurant and a library. Fee-based parking is available in Museumplein, or visitors can take the No. 2, 3, 5 or 12 tram to the Van Baerlestraat or Museumplein stop. The museum is open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., with extended hours until 10 p.m. on Fridays. Find out more about the attraction by visiting the Stedelijk Museum website.

#1 Vondelpark

Located southwest of the city center, the 116-acre Vondelpark is the favorite leafy retreat of just about everyone. Not only is it the largest city park in Amsterdam, it's also one of the most revered in all of the Netherlands. Most recent travelers said they enjoyed people-watching and picnicking at the park, but other reviewers recommend avoiding a late-night visit as the park can be a little frightening once the sun sets. During the day, though, the park is filled with couples, families and friends, and is definitely worth a visit.

Ponds, fields and playgrounds are connected by winding paths, which also run by an open-air theater, a rollerblade rental, a rose garden, several cafes and a range of statues and sculptures. Open dawn to dusk, you can take trams 1, 2 or 5 to the Leidseplein, and you'll have just a quick two-minute walk to reach the park's entrance. The park is free to visit.
