Relocating to Amsterdam

IN Amsterdam

As the capital of the Netherlands and the leader of a more liberal lifestyle, Amsterdam needs little introduction. The city is divided into seven districts: Centrum, Oost, West, Nieu-West, Nord, Zuid and Zuid-Oost – all well connected by cycle paths, public transport and even water taxi. 

Although not classed as a coastal city, Amsterdam is linked to open water by the long North Sea Canal and the centre itself is reported to have more than 165 ‘grachten’ (canals) that total in excess of 100 kilometres, with around 90 islands and 1,500 bridges.
