As one of Europe’s most interesting capital cities, there are some Amsterdam rentals you’ll just have to see to believe.
Rows and rows of slightly-askew townhouses line the streets and their iconic, gabled façades are a staple of Dutch Renaissance architecture. Back in the day, residents used pulley systems to move in large pieces of furniture or unload cargo from the canals. Today, you’ll still see many of these original gable hooks in place!
Along the canal belt and in the nearby Docklands, both charming and ultra-modern houseboats sway gently in the water. So more and more residents are opting for a floating home over the limited building supply.
Many of these incredible homes are now unique Amsterdam rentals! So check out our guide below to some of the most amazing Amsterdam rentals on Airbnb.
