    • Anne Frank family home

      Amsterdam Apr 17, 2015 at 10:01 AM

      I read somewhere that it is possible to visit the home in which the Otto Frank family lived before going into hiding. Is this case, and if so, where can I obtain further information?

    • Queen's day, or is it King's day now?

      Amsterdam Apr 13, 2015 at 12:06 AM

      4 years ago I landed at Shipol airport on May the 2nd. A big celebration for Queen's day was in progress, everyone was partying, and wearing orange wigs. there was lots of music and fun but no taxis to take us to our hotel. The only one who agreed left us about 5 blocks from hotel because of the crowds. We had to walk with suitcases.

      A friend of mine is planning a trip to Amsterdam on May 1st or 2nd. When is this celebration going to be held? Is it better for my friend to postpone her trip for a day or 2?

      Thank you for the info.

    • transportation and connection keukenhof to Haarlem

      Amsterdam Apr 14, 2015 at 9:29 AM

      We want to buy a ticket (bus858) and entry to the garden in Keukenhof. We would take the opportunity, since we will be in the area, to visit Haarlem once the visit of the garden is over.
      Is it possible to take a bus to Haarlem and come back to Keukenhof to take 858 bus (already paid) to get back in Amsterdam the same day, of course?
      How fare is Haarlem from Keukenhof?
      thank you

    • Going out in Alkmaar

      by Tamartje Online Now Jul 24, 2011 at 7:56 AM

      HI guys!

      I'm coming to Alkmaar in September with a friend, we'll be in Alkmaar for one night (two nights actually, but on the first one we're going to see Blof :) )
      Any recommendations for where to go at night?
      I know it's a small place, so there might not be many options?
      (I wonder if it's better to be in Amsterdam? Don't feel like, though)

      Thanks!

    • Alkmaar B&B question

      by wompbomp Online Now Nov 14, 2010 at 8:18 AM

      We hope to visit Alkmaar next May; we plan to stay 3 or 4 nights. Is anyone familiar with Pension Onassis? They seem to be centrally located, and offer a room with private bath for 70 euros per night. Other accommodations with private bath seem to be considerable more. We are open to suggestions. We prefer to keep our lodging costs down so we can visit Europe more often and stay longer! Thanks for your help.

      Schiphol Airport to Alkmaar Cheese Market

      by bbcrayon Online Now Apr 7, 2009 at 2:11 AM

      I will be arriving Netherlands, Schiphol Airport on 24 Apr 09, Friday at 7am. I would like to visit the Alkmaar Cheese Market on the same day right after I arrive. I have the following questions, will be much appreciate if someone can advise:

      1).I'm not sure how fast the Netherlands immigration office process will take. However, if I take a train leaving airport at 8am, do you think it's possible to arrive at the Cheese Market before 9:30am?

      2). Where can I find the train schedule from Schiphol Airport to Alkmaar? How frequent is the train?

      3). As I will have my baggage with me, should I leave the luggage at the locker at Alkmaar station? Do they have a locker for 25" baggage? How much will be the locker rental?

      4). From the Alkmaar train station, how can I get to the Cheese Market? Is it within walking distance?

      Many thanks!
