Accomodation Trends for Vacationing Abroad


One of Europe’s cultural urban centers, Amsterdam, has provided tourists with memorable vacations for decades. Visitors enjoy exploring the city’s narrow canals via rented bicycles while discovering the artistic inspiration for such minds as Rembrandt and Vincent Van Gogh. Why not escape the demands of the “real world” for a few weeks and check out The Netherlands’ quaint wooden shoes, aromatic tulips, and picturesque windmills?


Visiting the Heineken factory, infamous Red Light District, and the Anne Frank house have been traditional attractions for years. However, in recent years, tourists have begun a new trend when booking accommodations - renting holiday apartments. In metropolitan areas all over Europe, tourists are straying from the traditional hotels and inns while searching for a stay that more closely parallels the lifestyle of residents. What better way to experience the local lifestyle than to live among them?



This option not only allows a visitor to walk through the daily life of the Dutch but can actually be more inexpensive to rent on a weekly or monthly basis. This trend is particularly popular among Amsterdam’s neighbors who are just a brief train-ride away: the French and the Germans. Though tourists may decide to find an apartment upon arrival in Amsterdam, a lot of people are using the convenience and security of the internet. As French and German tourists are so plentiful, ads are often geared toward them, so one can broaden his search engine results by typing “appartement vacances Amsterdam” or ”ferienwohnung Amsterdam” to find the perfect home away from home.
