    • Holland pass . Is it worth ?

      Amsterdam Apr 14, 2014 at 11:06 PM

      We are four people going to Amsterdam for two days. We are planning to visit Anne franks house , kuekenhof gardens, two hour city bus tour, rjiksmuseum , Van Gogh museum , vondlepark and go to dam square .
      We read that the pass does not involve ride to scipol airport . So should we buy holland pass or travel on our own ?
      Does it prove to be cheaper ?
      Also , can we buy the holland pass in Amsterdam itself or is it necessary to buy it online ?

      We like to walk! We are staying at the Golden Tulip Hotel and would like advice on which is the most interesting and pleasant (picturesque)/safest route to take if we want to walk into the heart of the city. Also, if anyone know if there is a bus stop nearby with buses that can take us to/from the city centre to the hotel. Thank you. Sam.

    • KLM Transit - Baggage

      Amsterdam Apr 6, 2014 at 6:38 PM

      I am doing a round trip in Europe TPE-AMD-WAW-MSK-BEG-AMD-BRU-AMD-TPE, while first stop at AMD supposed to be transit. However, for the first part of AMD-WAW-MSK-BEG-AMD, I would like to leave the luggage at the Schiphol Airport baggage depot.

      I found online that Baggage Depot at Schiphol Airport is at the arrival hall, so have some questions:
      1. Does it mean I must to first enter the country and leave my bag at baggage depot and depart again?
      2. Can I check in 1 bag TPE-AMD-WAW all the way and another TPE-AMD and only clear this one for baggage depot? Or must I clear 2 bags and recheck in for AMD-WAW?
      3. Does anyone have any idea if baggage depot opens on Easter Monday?

      Thanks for all your help.

    • Where to park in Amsterdam?

      Amsterdam Apr 16, 2014 at 4:34 AM

      Hello fellow travellers,

      I'm traveling to Amsterdam by car at the end of this month and I was wondering if you can help me out to find parking. I need long-term parking so I can leave my car for 4 days and then travel around by public transport. It would be even better if I can take out my car once in a while.

      Please suggest parking that is secure and easily accessible, not necessarily in the city center (I assume thats expensive).

      I would appreciate any help. Thank you!

      Hotels in Amsterdam

      Amsterdam Apr 9, 2014 at 7:19 PM

      Was hoping to spend a few days in Amsterdam in May, but find most of the hotels are so expensive especially over the weekend so would probably want to do it another time.. Is there any particular off peak season other than winter time that one can find more affordable accommodation?


    • budget option to get to the city center

      Amsterdam Yesterday

      Hi VTers,

      We’re a group of 20 friends visiting Amsterdam on a budget from July 30 – August 07. We’ll be staying a little bit out of the city center, at hotel Holiday Inn Amsterdam . Appreciate if anyone could tell me how much it costs to get from the hotel to the center ,and vice versa, by tram, metro or bus ? I have recently heard about GVB cards valid for 24, 48 ,72 ,96 ….hrs , do you think they could be a good option for saving money , especially we will most likely make more than one ride a day to the center? How much are these cards and where to get them ?

      Thanks a lot for your help.

    • 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!
