See all departure points

Head to the land of tulips, windmills and red light attractions with one of our cheap flights to Amsterdam. Fans of this small but bustling city in the province of North Holland have a lot to appreciate, from world-class museums to nearby tulip fields bursting with color in the spring. Dubbed "Venice of the North," the cozy metropolis is built around a labyrinth of picturesque canals dotted with tour boats, paddle boats and houseboats that serve as permanent dwellings.

The museums alone are worth the price of a flight to Amsterdam. Home to more museums per capita than any other European city, Amsterdam boasts the Rijksmuseum, where hometown hero Rembrandt's "The Night Watch" is on permanent display. Located on Museumplein, or Museum Square, the Rijksmuseum's neighbors include the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum with its contemporary art and other renowned cultural attractions. Musical performances at the Concertgebouw and concerts at Paradiso and the Melkweg are inspiration for many Amsterdam flights as well.

When you get tired of all that highbrow culture and crave something a little more down to earth, Amsterdam has plenty of other options. Sidle up to the bar at a neighborhood dive and order a ginever for a uniquely Dutch experience. This Dutch gin may be the drink of choice for an older generation, but ordering it alongside locals gives you a sense of gezellig, loosely translated as the coziness that embodies Dutch culture. The allure of this unique atmosphere is at least partially responsible for the popularity of cheap flights to Amsterdam.

Of course, Amsterdam's nighttime activities inspire many a reservation for a cheap flight to Amsterdam from nearby European countries and abroad. The Red Light District's infamous attractions motivate even the most mild-mannered tourists to pop in for a peek. If your curiosity takes you to this old Amsterdam neighborhood, don't fear for your safety. Its many hotels and the families who live there make it just another busy part of the city.
