Moving to Amsterdam
Are you moving to Amsterdam? The capital of the Netherlands or, more romantically, the Venice of the north, is famed above all for its canals, its tulips and its cheese. But if you have visions of quaint cobbled streets, arched bridges, bicycles and wooden clogs, think again. Amsterdam has much more to offer than its picture postcard image—it’s an important port, centre of the diamond trade, one of Europe’s main financial centres and is considered an alpha world city by the Globalization and World Cities study group. Seven of the world’s 500 largest companies are headquartered here and the Economist Intelligence Unit has ranked it second best city in the world in which to live.
It boasts the oldest stock exchange on the planet, some of the finest art galleries and museums in Europe, and the medieval Grachten—the concentric rings of canals in the centre of the city which were constructed in the 17th century. English is widely spoken and the Amsterdamers are friendly and welcoming, making it an extremely popular posting for expats.
