The Amsterdam International Water Week will take place in Amsterdam, capital of the Netherlands. The city has over 850.000 inhabitants and is located in the northwestern part of the Netherlands. It is the largest city of the country and one of the most popular travel destinations of Europe, receiving millions of tourists annually.
Water has always played a prominent role in the history of the city. The historical city center has remained largely untouched and features elaborate canals and characteristic Golden Age architecture. In August 2010, Amsterdam’s 17th-century Canal Ring was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. Amsterdam is also well known for its Museum District with the Van Gogh Museum, Rijks Museum and Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art. The city offers a great variety of multicultural restaurants and a vibrant night life. Go for a stroll, take a canal cruise or enjoy the Old Dutch Masters, such as Rembrandt and Vermeer.
