Amsterdam is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, receiving more than 4.63 million international visitors annually; this is excluding the 16 million day trippers visiting the city every year. The number of visitors has been growing steadily over the past decade. This can be attributed to an increasing number of European visitors.
Two-thirds of the hotels are located in the city's centre. Hotels with 4 or 5 stars contribute 42% of the total beds available and 41% of the overnight stays in Amsterdam. Amsterdam is famous for its vibrant and diverse nightlife. Amsterdam has many cafes (bars). They range from large and modern to small and cosy.
The typical Bruine Kroeg (brown cafe) breathe a more old fashioned atmosphere with dimmed lights, candles, and somewhat older clientele. Most cafes have terraces in summertime.
