Explore Amsterdam, Netherlands

What was once a small fishing village in the 12th century has bloomed into both the commercial capital of the Netherlands and one of the top financial centers in Europe. Yet its 60 miles of historic canals lined with gable-roofed homes make this cozy city one of a kind.

Every CIEE semester program has frequent cultural excursions and a multi-day study tour uniquely designed to complement the program’s academics and enhance students’ cultural immersion. In Amsterdam, past study tours and excursions have included:

  • Overnight trips to Rotterdam, Maastricht, or Dordrecht
  • Bike tours through Amsterdam’s countryside
  • Tours of medieval castles, authentic fishing towns, and other urban areas
