Could there be anything better than enjoying all the energy of Amsterdam from a green, rural location, just a stone’s throw away from the beautiful Dutch countryside? If you are searching for such a place, then you have to stay at Amsterzonian Bed & Breakfast in North Amsterdam. Fred Dwarshuis, who runs Amsterzonian, welcomes you into his eco-friendly B&B by literally raising your country’s flag. “It is an extra way of saying: ‘Welcome!’ and is really appreciated by our guests,” he smiles. Upon arrival, Dwarshuis, accompanied by multiple maps and brochures, takes the time to introduce you to the city centre and its surrounding countryside, both of which are really close by.
