Amsterdam's roots run deep. Founded as a modest fishing village in the 12th century, the city has grown into an internationally oriented capital of entertainment, cultural events, and world-renowned art museums. Amsterdam is best known among tourists for its picturesque canals, drawbridges, Red Light District, and 'coffee shops' where no coffee is sold.
Don't forget to visit Amsterdam Oud-Zuid, where you will find the lively Albert Cuyp market and the Rijksmuseum with its impressive art collection.
rent a motorhome in Amsterdam and drive to great places close to the city, such as the historic town of Haarlem and the photogenic fishing village of Volendam.
The main gateway to Amsterdam is Schiphol International Airport, an airport located 20 kilometers south of the city center and home to the airline KLM. Amsterdam is connected to many other Dutch cities by several motorways, including the A1, A2, and A4. The city's main train station is Amsterdam Central Station, from where trains depart to major cities such as Rotterdam, The Hague, and Utrecht. There are also international connections to Berlin, Paris, and other cities by high-speed trains. In the city itself, you will find an extensive network of bus, metro, and tram lines.
Parking with your RV rental in Amsterdam can be a hassle, but it is possible to find a spot in the city center. The rate in centrally located streets such as the Prinsengracht and the Damrak is € 7.50 per hour. Parking at reduced rates is possible at the Park + Travel spots, such as P+R RAI and P+R Sloterdijk. The rates here vary from € 1.40 to € 3.00 per hour, and you can travel further to the center by public transport.
Amsterdam has a temperate maritime climate, with fairly warm summers and cold winters that are accompanied by a lot of precipitation. Although the heaviest rainfall occurs in the winter months, it's a good idea to bring a foldable umbrella or rain jacket even in spring and summer. That way, you'll be spared a wet outfit during the cool festivals and open-air concerts in the warmer seasons!
The weather in Amsterdam is unpredictable, to say the least. In the winter, snow can fall at temperatures as low as -10 degrees, while a week later, bright sunshine can make you feel like spring. Sometimes you can skate on the canals in winter, but this is not guaranteed.
In summer, temperatures can soar above 30 degrees, making this the perfect time to relax in Vondelpark, admire the Canal Parade boats or visit the Caribbean Kwaku Summer Festival.
Amsterdam receives by far the most visitors between June and August when summer brings good weather and outdoor activities. Summer is also peak season in Amsterdam and prices for hotels are at their highest, linked to popular festivals such as Kwaku Summer Festival, Pride Amsterdam, and the Amsterdam Dance Festival.
If you can stand a bit of cold, the winter months are ideal for RV rental in Amsterdam. The prices of excursions and accommodation are significantly lower, as there are far fewer events and tourists in the city.
