The Dutch capital city of Amsterdam can be found in the province of North Holland in the Netherlands. This former fishing village was built as a dam to the river Amstel in the 12th century, while in the 17th century, the city became wealthy as a result of its thriving port, with the money invested in the city’s architecture and culture. Hiring a car from Amstel Business Park means you can tour Amsterdam’s museums and galleries and really give yourself a chance to explore the city’s rich history. Art lovers should visit Museumplein, 15 minutes away, and take in the Van Gogh Museum, and head to the Stedelijk Museum to learn about Dutch art and design. The House of Anne Frank is a must-visit to learn about the wartime diarist and what she and her family went through, while the Rijksmuseum showcases the city’s decorated past.
