    • What to do with a 9 hour layover...

      Amsterdam Aug 20, 2015 at 8:51 AM


      It looks like I have a 9 hour layover. As I don't think I could possibly entertain myself for this long in the airport I'd love suggestions of what to do with that time. My flight gets in at 9:30 pm and I leave around 7:00am departure.

      What should I do/what's the best route for transportation?

      Thanks for your advice!

      Copenhagen snuff/smokeless tobacco/dipping/chewing tobacco

      Amsterdam Aug 7, 2015 at 12:04 PM

      Does anyone have experience bringing Copenhagen (or similar) smokeless tobacco through customs in Amsterdam? From what I have researched we are allowed 200 cigarettes OR 250 grams of "tobacco", and there will be a 147.7% tax on anything over the "250 grams tobacco" (cigarette overages are less). I think the intent is pipe or hookah, not dipping tobacco, but I’m going with "not rolled". I am also wondering if we should empty all those cans into a baggie or see if we can get the smoke shop here to put it in a labeled container. Either way we will get in the "red" line at customs and declare the overage, since no way our combined allotment will last him a month.

      Hotels in Amsterdam

      Amsterdam Aug 17, 2015 at 7:24 PM

      Have been looking online at hotels in Amsterdam for mid September for 3-4 nights. Is seems to me that if you don't book a hotel out side the city they are ridiculously expensive, at least for my wallet. Are the surrounding towns within a short distance to downtown Amsterdam. We would like to pay around 200$ Canadian so that would be around 150 Euros.
      Any suggestions for hotels.

      Train from Paris to Amsterdam and back to Brussels

      Amsterdam Aug 15, 2015 at 6:16 AM

      Hi, my wife and I are going to Paris in early September and after a few days would like to go to Amsterdam and Brussels. Our plan is to take a train directly from Paris to Amsterdam and then make our way back to Brussels before flying back to Canada. My question is this is it better for us to get some sort of rail pass for a week or two or just pay as we go? We don't have any set agenda but would like to see several towns and cities along the way from Amsterdam to Brussels.

    • 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!
