Amsterdam
BioBusiness Summer School takes place in the city of Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands. Amsterdam The city has a population of over 800.000 inhabitants and is the largest city in the Netherlands.
The city centre of Amsterdam is unique for the untouched historic centre with thousands monumental buildings and its 100km (!) of canals which makes it perfect to explore Amsterdam by boat. The top tourist attractions are a.o. Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Anne Frank Huis, A'DAM tower and Vondelpark. While exploring this lively city, watch out for the bikes! There are more bikes in Amsterdam than there are residents and even there are very good biking infrastructures, during peak times it often means chaos.
