No increase in US tourists to Amsterdam

The number of American tourists visiting Amsterdam has not increased for the first time in years, the central statistics bureau CBS reported on Tuesday.

Between 2003 and 2006 numbers went up steadily, reaching a record 10% in 2006. However, over the first half of 2007 there has been no change. The tourist board blames the strong euro, newspaper Parool reported on Tuesday evening.
