    • Open air markets

      Roermond Jul 5, 2015 at 1:08 AM

      I was in Amsterdam a few days back and chanced upon the lovely Albert Cuyp market where there were very nice fresh fish and seafood on sale there (pictured). I was wondering if there's a open air market similar in Roermond or Maastricht? I would like to buy fresh fish and seafood! Thanks! :)

    • [Wadden Islands] Texel - Vlieland - Terschelling by ferry+ bike in one day?

      Netherlands Jun 24, 2015 at 5:33 AM


      If someone knows those islands, I was wondering how realistic it is to 1) take the first ferry in the morning to go from the mainland to Texel, then 2) take ferries to hop to Vlieland and Terschelling, 3) take the last ferry back to the mainland at Harlingen, and then 4) catch a train to Groningen.

      I'll have a (folding) bike with me.

      Thank you.

    • Groningen, Drenthe, Friesland, Noord-Holland, Gelderland

      Netherlands Jun 21, 2015 at 5:53 PM

      In late July-early August, I will be driving from Kolding, Denmark, to Antwerp, Belgium, and back. I'd like to do it in a leisurely fashion, taking a couple of days each way. My preferences are for villages, towns, and smaller cities, pleasant scenery, interesting museums, good restaurants. I've visited Amsterdam, Utrecht, Delft, and Den Haag repeatedly, but I'd like to see more of the surrounding country. I don't know 's-Hertogen-Bosch, Nijmegen, Deventer, or Arnhem. Been to Eindhoven and don't need to return. Thoughts from natives or other travelers? Nederlands spreek ik. Deutsch spreche ich auch. So non-touristy places are fine.

      We are arriving at the international airport in Amsterdam on 10 October, and will need to catch a train to our accommodation, and we are departing by train for Köln Germany on 14 October.

      Is there a travel card for use on trains and buses that you recommend for travel in and around Amsterdam, for our 4 night stay, that we should or can buy upon arrival at the airport?

      Thanks in advance for advice.

      Limited time layover

      Amsterdam Jun 30, 2015 at 9:35 AM

      8 of us have an 8 1/2 hour lay over ( our choice) . I have read that we can take a train from the airport to the center of Amsterdam also that there are lockers we can put excess baggage in. My question is; is this a reliable way to do this? The group would like to go to the Anne Frank museum. But in reading it looks like lines can be 4 hours to get in. Is there away to eliminate lines? Are there better canal cruises then others? Is there an inexpensive way to have someone take us around? ( just a thought)

      Hi... I've joined this site in a desperate attempt to get some information before I travel alone for the first time in August! I'm travelling to Detroit, through Sciphol, and I'm very nervous about it after hearing that it's such a huge airport. How will I know where to go, how do I know where my next gate is and how to find it? I've read about schengen and non schengen areas but don't know what this means in relation to security checks etc for me! It's all very stressful, please help!
