Dutch, but everybody speaks also English.
Visas, mostly needed if you are longer here than 3 months and are a citizen from outside the Shengen zone
ATM’s are everywhere to get euros. Credit cards are accepted in most hotels, but not in all bars or restaurants
There is a VVV (tourist information center) at the central station, but it is best to take a walk with us!
Amsterdam is expensive, especially in the city center. Unfortunately, we don’t know a cheap place to stay.
GVB has an OV chipcard that you can use for 1 hour, a day or longer. The I Amsterdam card offers a good option for a combination of public transport and lots of museums for 24, 36, or 72, hours.
However, the best way to get around after a walking tour in Amsterdam is on a bicycle, but make sure you know what you are doing. Stay on the right side of the road, don’t stop unexpectedly and stretch out your arm if you are taking a turn to the left or the right. Also, look over your shoulder if nobody wants to pass you.
