Ultimate Self-Guided Walking Tour of Amsterdam

The Ultimate Self-Guided Amsterdam Walking Tour

Amsterdam Walking Tour

If you only had one day to see Amsterdam, or just wanted to see as much as possible in one day, here’s how!

Just follow this Amsterdam Walking Tour. The tour is laid out as a circle so that you can start at the point closest to where you are staying, and work your way back! Luckily, Amsterdam is small enough that you really can “hit all the spots” in one day, as long as you follow this map!


The numbers listed below correspond to the numbers on the map! Screenshot or download the map!

  1. Vondelpark
  2. Stedelijk Museum
  3. Van Gogh Museum
  4. Rijksmuseum (IAmsterdam Sign)
  5. Heineken Experience
  6. 16 Bridge View
  7. Rembrandtplein (Rembrandt Square)
  8. Bloemenmarkt (Stins Flower Market)
  9. Fault In Our Stars Bench
  10. Begijnhof
  11. De 9 Straatjes (The Nine Streets, the best shopping and canal views, to be continued later)
  12. Dam Square
    1. Optional side tour (starred in green) to Central Station, Church of Saint Nicholas, SkyLounge Amsterdam, Top Floor of Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam, and NEMO Science Museum
  13. Noordermarkt (Monday markets in the beautiful Jordaan area)
  14. Anne Frank Huis
  15. Westerkerk
  16. The Rest of the Nine Streets

The End! What a long, yet extremely worthwhile day. I hope you fell in love with Amsterdam!

  1. Amsterdam is lovely; I was there back in April for tulip season. While it’s possible to do Amsterdam in one day, I would recommend spending at least two days to take in all of the sights, especially at a more leisurely pace. Granted, if you’re pressed for time, I’d say go for the self-guided walking tour!

    1. Thank you!!! I’m glad you think my tour would be great if you only have a day! I stayed five days when I was there so I agree! It was great!

  2. Wander-full post! Awesome tips, your last post came in so handy on my trip to Amsterdam and this one is essential for flying visits to the city. It’s impossible to see everything as there is SO much to explore! Happy travels X

    1. Wow!!! That is a HUGE compliment that you actually used something I wrote!!!! I am so happy! And I defiantly agree, there is just so MUCH to see!!!!

      1. Yay, I’m so happy I could put a smile on your face. Your last post was super useful to me and I know many people will benefit from this one too 🙂 Happy blogging x

    1. Thank you for the lovely words!!!!! I’m so glad that you find it helpful- all I want to do is help people!

  3. What’s the ‘Fault in our stars bench’? I never saw the movie, I think it will make me sad…
