FAQ: Is Amsterdam an expensive city?

Although it is a capital city, Amsterdam is not as expensive as other world cities, especially if you consider that you will have access to social housing at prices well below free-market rates. However, Amsterdam is not necessarily a cheap city either, and tends to have 'big city' prices (although bargains can always be found). The strength of the Euro can strongly affect how expensive Amsterdam 'feels' to people from non-Euro countries.
