List of the best day trips from Amsterdam. Day trips from Amsterdam might seem unnecessary (the city is often touted as one of the most romantic and alluring in Europe), but these Amsterdam day trips prove that the area outside the city can be just as enthralling. Whether you want to visit modern cities or glorious gardens, you’ll find the best Amsterdam day trips here.

Did you know that while Amsterdam is the most populated city in the Netherlands and the official Dutch capital, the seat of the Dutch government is actually in the Hague? Although you’ll find impressive governmental buildings, such as the Binnenhof, in the Hague, you’ll find so much more if you choose this city for an Amsterdam side trip. You can marvel at the works of M.C. Escher in the Escher Museum, experience a movie at the Omniversum, or relax by the pool at Duinrell.

Amsterdam day trips also encompass the beauty of nature, as anyone who’s visited the spring garden at Keukenhof can attest to. The site boasts over 7 million tulips, hyacinths and daffodils and is said to leave Amsterdam travelers speechless. You might also visit Edam and check out the cheese market, another popular day trip for Amsterdam travelers.

This list comprises the side trips from Amsterdam visitors can’t wait to take. From the natural to the man-made, Amsterdam day trips have something for everyone in the family -- young, old, and everywhere in between.
