As the cold season sets in Amsterdam, the flowers start disappearing from the streets and are confined only to the flower shops. It is a stark contrast that is clearly visible to anyone visiting this beautiful city in the summer and then later in the fall.
Amsterdam in the summer is just beautiful and quiet. Flowers everywhere and bicycles…the only noisy people in town are … the tourists. This city has amazed me every time I have visited it…nobody is honking, nobody is yelling…just make sure you don't get run over by a bicycle! The summer is the greatest time to visit Amsterdam, because during the winter Amsterdam is very cold. I think Amsterdam is the easiest city to visit while waiting on a connecting flight. If you have at least two hours in between your flights in Amsterdam, just take the train and go visit the city.
