Despite the compactness of the city, Amsterdam is a bit too big to be explored in its entirety by foot. A good bike solves that problem in one fell swoop.
From the Central Station to the Museumplein, from De Pijp to the Jordaan, from Artis to NEMO: you’ll cover all these distances in less than half an hour on bike. In a bike-friendly city like Amsterdam, you don’t have to worry about hunting down a parking place for your steed of steel. And since you’ll no longer be dependent on taxis or public transport, that’s even more money that stays in your pocket. On your bike you’ll experience Amsterdam just like the locals do, even if you only get to spend one day in town.
