Expanded Coverage: The year 2013 will be a banner one for Amsterdam, as two top museums will unveil massive renovations: the Rijksmuseum (home of Rembrandt's "Nightwatch") and the Stedelijk (a modern-art collection). New write-ups showcase the city's hip outlier neighborhoods: North Amsterdam, the Eastern Drydocks, and the gentrifying De Wallen Red Light district. The dining chapter dishes on the burgeoning school of Amsterdam cuisine (turbot on a bed of beetroot and sea nettles, anyone?), and a Netherlands Today section focuses on high-profile topics such as the changes for vice visitors (laws concerning sex and drugs), contemporary design, and immigration.
Illustrated Features: Packed with gorgeous color photos, this new edition will add images of iconic recent Amsterdam buildings, such as the Nemo science center designed by Renzo Piano, the ARCAM center for architecture, and Delugan Meissl's Eye Film Institute, along with new design-centric hotels such as the Conservatorium and the Andaz Amsterdam. A two-page feature presents top Dutch designers.
Indispensable Trip Planning Tools The Top Attractions, If You Like, and With Kids features make planning a snap, as do Great Itineraries. Best Bets for restaurants and hotels help travelers find the top options by price and experience. A new section on bicycling in Amsterdam includes tips on bike-route etiquette; listings for the best rental and tour companies; and a route map.
