Around the world, travellers choose Airbnb to enjoy unique experiences in local homes beyond tourist hotspots. Travellers to Amsterdam are increasingly choosing to stay in the homes of hosts outside the city centre, helping them to discover new communities they might otherwise have missed. The spread of tourism to these outer neighbourhoods is also helping to extend the economic benefits of cultural tourism to hosts, local businesses and their communities.
Meet the hosts of Amsterdam
Hosts on Airbnb are kick-starting a new campaign in which they explain why they share their home in Amsterdam. The summer campaign will feature local hosts telling their stories in their own words on how home sharing on Airbnb is a sustainable form of tourism that supports local families and communities.
New data on responsible home sharing in Amsterdam
The number of entire homes being shared for more than 60 days has been reduced by almost three quarters compared to the same period last year.
Airbnb and Amsterdam continue pioneering collaboration
Amsterdam is a world leader for the sharing economy and is a special city for Airbnb. It was one of the first cities in the world to introduce progressive home sharing rules and the first city in Europe to work with Airbnb to promote the rules and simplify the payment of tourist tax.
