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.
Stop excessive regulation, make your voice heard
The City of Amsterdam wants to implement a rule that would obligate hosts to notify the City every single time they share their entire home. Many hosts have told us this proposed rule invades their privacy and would be unnecessarily burdensome. You have the opportunity to oppose the proposed regulation! Take a few minutes to share your story directly with City Hall.
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.
