      how has Winter been this year? I'm hoping not overly severe, as I am visiting Keukenhof around 11/12 or 13th April, I know some severe winters have caused a delay in the blooms, I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

    • Tourist travel

      Amsterdam Mar 2, 2015 at 1:33 AM

      Our family holiday to Amsterdam is fast approaching, I have been researching public transport, however I have found the advice very confusing & it is now as clear as mud!
      We will be staying for 1 week, our hotel is on Sarphatistraat.
      We are 2 adults & 3 children-ages 15,11 & 10 years.
      We have already purchased a combi ticket to Keukenhof :)
      Please could anyone suggest what may be the best type of tickets for travel around the city.
      Also, do you know of a Keukenhof webcam? I am so excited about the trip & would love to see the flowers or at least the green shoots peeking!

    • Keukenhof in April

      Amsterdam Feb 5, 2015 at 1:52 AM

      whilst on holiday in April, we are planning a visit to Keukenhof, I do not want to use a tour company as their day trips are only half a day. We really want to see as much of it as possible & lunch there too, so will go early morning.

      I understand there are combi tickets, I am staying at Sarphatistraat & wish to find the simplist way to travel to Keukenhof & best place to buy combi ticket.

    • 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)

    • 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!
