In the afternoon, we will head towards the lowest and most liberal capital in the world: Amsterdam.

 

16´Day - Amsterdam

Culture and liberal politics have made Amsterdam a world reference for liberal people, especially those who push for the legalization of soft drugs (marijuana and hashish) and the legalization of prostitution.

But Amsterdam is not just coffee shops and the red light district, there are other beautiful things to do and see! Fed up? Why don’t you take a walk through the Van Gogh MuseumRembrandt museum, the Moco or Rijksmuseum or visit the Anne Frank House, and if you fancy a beer, Heineken is your star choice!

*Optional Activity

    • Trip to the traditional dutch windmill village, Zaanse Schans

Later on today we will continue our trip through Western Europe… this time we are going to Belgium, more specifically its capital Brussels, the heart of the EU.

In spite of being a modern yet not very large city, it is the capital of Belgium and the rest of Europe. This decision was made due to its central location and the fact it was one of the european capitals involved in the creation of the EU.

This modern and diplomatic city will enchant you with its bars which house thousands of different types of beer, its chocolate shops and the Grand Palace.. all of which will leave you speechless. We will explore the city and make sure we see the main monuments and touristic sites. What´s more, the headquarters of many international organizations such as the EEC and the European Parliment are located here. This is why you are more likely to bump into a diplomat in the street than spot an aeroplane in the sky.
