Additional Location Information
Bed & Breakfast Margot is situated on the elm-lined Singel, the innermost of Amsterdam’s glorious 17th century ring of canals, a beautiful walking area in itself. All main sight-seeing attractions are at walking distance.
Canal cruises in Amsterdam are now the most popular tourist attraction in the country, with over 3 million passengers a year. For good reason, the city was built to be seen from that perspective. If you want to take it easy, the tram is a great alternative. Amsterdam has excellent public transport. The Amsterdam trams bring you nearly everywhere. Stops are around the corner from Bed & Breakfast Margot. You can buy disposable tickets on the trams.
Amsterdam is the country’s largest city and stands on precariously low-lying ground at the confluence of the Amstel and Ij rivers. Flooding is avoided via the sea defences and land reclamation.
The city was founded as a small fishing village, the waters controlled by a system of dykes and polders. It became the main trading city of northern Europe and ultimately the centre of a massive empire.
Known for its canals and gabled houses from the 16th and 17th centuries, Amsterdam is a fine example of architectural beauty. It became a major financial centre in the 18th century famous for trading, publishing and the diamond industry. It slid into a period of obscurity before emerging again in the late 20th century helped immensely by the development of Schiphol airport offering easy access for the world and tourists to visit the stunning art museums and enjoy the vibrant city life.
Amsterdam is a city that is perfect for walking and cycling. A car is of no use within Amsterdam.
