With its world-famous allure, beautiful canals, great art scene and eco-friendly culture, Amsterdam is certainly one of the most sought-after cities in Europe. Rental properties in Amsterdam are always in high demand. Unsurprisingly, the cost of living and rental prices in the city tend to be on the higher side.
In terms of price of accommodation, Amsterdam is one of the most expensive cities in Europe. The average rent for a 1 bedroom property in the city centre would be around 1600 euros.
Those who move to Amsterdam must be prepared to leave their car outside the city and buy a bicycle instead. The Dutch are fond of biking! The city has pledged to become the greenest city in Europe, so cars that are not electric cars will have difficulty getting through the city.
The parking fees are correspondingly high and you have to wait a very long time for a resident parking permit. But it is easy to get around in the city with a bicycle.
