Why go?

The Sunday Telegraph - Travel - - Cover Story -

For­get spring flow­ers and songs about tulips: au­tumn is the time to visit Am­s­ter­dam. The city is at its best as the sum­mer gen­tly fades, as leaves on the trees along the canals turn shades of brown and drop to re­veal even bet­ter views of his­toric gables, and as peo­ple slowly with­draw from ter­races into the cosy warmth of wood-pan­elled cafés. This sea­son, you get two cities for one with an ex­hi­bi­tion at the Van Gogh Mu­seum (van­gogh­mu­seum.nl; Oct 13 to Jan 7) on Dutch painters (Van Gogh, Bre­it­ner, Mon­drian) who were in­spired by Paris.
