Prehistory[ edit ] Due to its geographical location in what used to be wet peatland , the founding of Amsterdam is of a younger age than the founding of other urban centers in the Low Countries. However, in and around the area of what later became Amsterdam, local farmers settled as early as three millennia ago. They lived along the prehistoric IJ river and upstream of its tributary Amstel.

The prehistoric IJ was a shallow and quiet stream in peatland behind beach ridges. This secluded area could grow there into an important local settlement center, especially in the late Bronze Age , the Iron Age and the Roman Age. Neolithic and Roman artefacts have also been found downstream of this area, in the prehistoric Amstel bedding under Amsterdam’s Damrak and Rokin , such as shards of Bell Beaker culture pottery BC and a granite grinding stone BC.

A permanent settlement would not have been possible, since the river mouth and the banks of the Amstel in this period in time were too wet for permanent habitation. This side arm took the name from the eponymous land: Amstel. These farmers were starting the reclamation around upstream Ouderkerk aan de Amstel , and later at the other side of the river at Amstelveen.

The Van Amstel family , known in documents by this name since , [31] held the stewardship in this northwestern nook of the ecclesiastical district of the bishop of Utrecht. The family later served also under the count of Holland. A major turning point in the development of the Amstel river mouth is the All Saint’s Flood of In an extremely short period of time, the shallow river IJ turned into a wide estuary, which from then on offered the Amstel an open connection to the Zuiderzee , IJssel and waterways further afield.

With drier banks, the downstream Amstel mouth became attractive for permanent habitation. The settlement first appeared in a document concerning a road toll granted by the count of Holland Floris V to the residents apud Amestelledamme ‘at the dam in the Amstel’ or ‘at the dam of Amstelland’. Amsterdam was granted city rights in either or In , an alleged Eucharistic miracle in Kalverstraat rendered the city an important place of pilgrimage until the adoption of the Protestant faith.

The Miracle devotion went underground but was kept alive. In the 19th century, especially after the jubilee of , the devotion was revitalised and became an important national point of reference for Dutch Catholics. The Stille Omgang —a silent walk or procession in civil attire—is the expression of the pilgrimage within the Protestant Netherlands since the late 19th century.

In the 21st century, this has reduced to about 5, The main reasons for the uprising were the imposition of new taxes, the tenth penny, and the religious persecution of Protestants by the newly introduced Inquisition. The revolt escalated into the Eighty Years’ War , which ultimately led to Dutch independence. Jews from the Iberian Peninsula , Huguenots from France, prosperous merchants and printers from Flanders , and economic and religious refugees from the Spanish-controlled parts of the Low Countries found safety in Amsterdam.

The influx of Flemish printers and the city’s intellectual tolerance made Amsterdam a centre for the European free press. The Amsterdam Stock Exchange was the first stock exchange to introduce continuous trade in the early 17th century. These companies acquired overseas possessions that later became Dutch colonies. Decline and modernisation[ edit ] Amsterdam’s prosperity declined during the 18th and early 19th centuries.

During the Napoleonic Wars , Amsterdam’s significance reached its lowest point, with Holland being absorbed into the French Empire. However, the later establishment of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands in marked a turning point. View of Vijzelstraat looking towards the Muntplein , The end of the 19th century is sometimes called Amsterdam’s second Golden Age.

Both projects dramatically improved commerce with the rest of Europe and the world. These riots are known as the Aardappeloproer Potato rebellion. People started looting stores and warehouses in order to get supplies, mainly food. Nazi Germany invaded the Netherlands on 10 May and took control of the country. Some Amsterdam citizens sheltered Jews, thereby exposing themselves and their families to a high risk of being imprisoned or sent to concentration camps.

In response, the Dutch Communist Party organized the February strike attended by , people to protest against the raids. Many citizens traveled to the countryside to forage. Dogs, cats, raw sugar beets, and tulip bulbs—cooked to a pulp—were consumed to stay alive. As society was changing,[ clarification needed ] politicians and other influential figures made plans to redesign large parts of it. Further plans were to build a new highway above the metro to connect Amsterdam Centraal and the city centre with other parts of the city.

The required large-scale demolitions began in Amsterdam’s former Jewish neighborhood. At the peak of the demolition, the Nieuwmarktrellen Nieuwmarkt Riots broke out; [55] the rioters expressed their fury about the demolition caused by the restructuring of the city. As a result, the demolition was stopped and the highway into the city’s centre was never fully built; only the metro was completed.

Only a few streets remained widened. Meanwhile, large private organizations, such as Stadsherstel Amsterdam, were founded to restore the entire city centre. Although the success of this struggle is visible today, efforts for further restoration are still ongoing. In the 21st century, the Amsterdam city centre has attracted large numbers of tourists: between and , the annual number of visitors rose from 10 to 17 million.

Real estate prices have surged, and local shops are making way for tourist-oriented ones, making the centre unaffordable for the city’s inhabitants. The project was controversial because its cost had exceeded its budget by a factor three by , [62] because of fears of damage to buildings in the centre, and because construction had to be halted and restarted multiple times. This urban renewal and expansion of the traditional centre of the city—with the construction on artificial islands of the new eastern IJburg neighbourhood—is part of the Structural Vision Amsterdam initiative.

Amsterdam is located in the Western Netherlands, in the province of North Holland , the capital of which is not Amsterdam, but rather Haarlem. The river Amstel ends in the city centre and connects to a large number of canals that eventually terminate in the IJ. Amsterdam is about 2 metres 6. A man-made forest, Amsterdamse Bos , is in the southwest. Amsterdam is intensely urbanised, as is the Amsterdam metropolitan area surrounding the city. Comprising The city’s three main canals are the Prinsengracht, Herengracht and Keizersgracht.

The city is also served by a seaport. While winters are cool and summers warm, temperatures vary year by year. There can occasionally be cold, snowy winters and hot, humid summers. Frosts mainly occur during spells of easterly or northeasterly winds from the inner European continent. Summers are moderately warm with a number of hot days every month. The average daily high in August is Amsterdam’s average annual precipitation is mm 33 in.

Cloudy and damp days are common during the cooler months of October through March. Climate data for Amsterdam Airport Schiphol Month.
