Welkom to Amsterdam, the colourful, tolerant, canal-filled city that’s super accessible by foot, boat, tram – or pedal power. Breeze through the terminal at Southampton Airport and you’ll be there before you know it, sipping an Amstel on the Singel or enjoying the sights and sounds of Dam Square, shopping in the Negen Straatjes or museum-hopping in the Museum Quarter.

From the House of Orange to the House of Heineken Amsterdam welcomes every type of visitor with open arms. See spring tulips at Keukenhof, join in summer celebrations for King’s Day, kick leaves in the Vondelpark, or wander twinkling Christmas flower markets - there’s never a bad time to visit.

Grab a tram pass, hire a bike, or step onto a canal cruise and immerse yourself in the delights of this romantic, bite-sized city.

Getting there

Being so close to the UK, flying from Southampton Airport really is a breeze – it takes a little over an hour. Fly direct to Schiphol with Flybe and KLM.

Transport from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport

There are plenty of buses and taxis and trains that run to the city's Central Station every 15 mins.

Car hire is not advised if you’re planning to head into Amsterdam. With hefty parking fees on street, in car parks and the abundance of cyclists who always have the right of way, driving is not for the faint hearted.

Find more information on the Schiphol website.
