A city that is full of diversity, with people from all different backgrounds, and a transportation system that makes it easy to visit other countries for those with the travel bug (Germany and France are only three hours away by train!)

Insider’s tip: When winter comes along, the canals take on a new magical beauty as they freeze over and adopt a sparkling, icy surface. Best part is- you get to ice skate on the canals! Spend the Christmas season ice skating and finish off the day with some poffertjes (mini pancakes sprinkled with powdered sugar).
