Simply Amsterdam has been in existence since 1999.
Ever since, it has grown a large amount of information for visitors to Amsterdam. The website is run by Jan Westerhof, who is also responsible for the database programming.
All information on the site is regularly monitored, but of course you are welcome to comment on the content through the Contact Page.
The information on the website is disclosed in 3 ways:
- a menu structure, as found on most websites
- a search engine (that searches through the regular content, the news archive and the events calendar
- an extensive A-Z index
The design of the site has been done bij Swerk, who created a 'responsive design'.
This means the site can be viewed on classic computer screens, but also automatically adapts to the smaller tablet and smartphone screens.
The information is organized in such a way that visitors can easily find what they already know, and are triggered to explore things in Amsterdam they didn't yet know.
