Explore Cycling in Amsterdam
Amsterdam is a cycling city—about 40 percent of the population commutes by pedal power! Cycling is the most convenient way to get around the city due to Amsterdam’s narrow 17th-century streets and canals. Visitors can rent bicycles anywhere in the city, or take a guided cycling tour to explore Amsterdam’s enchanting nooks and crannies. Best places to start your cycle expedition quest: Central Station (home of the impressive, multi-story “bicycle flat”), Leidseplein and Dam Square.
