    • Tourist travel

      Amsterdam 5 hours ago

      Hello,
      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!

    • Winter Weather

      Amsterdam Feb 22, 2015 at 6:55 AM

      Hello,
      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!

    • Keukenhof in April

      Amsterdam Feb 5, 2015 at 1:52 AM

      Hi,
      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.

      I have a chance to go to Zaandam for the last week in March, and into April, if I take my daughter. Otherwise I can go alone later, in April or may. I would rather take my daughter, but don't want it to be uncomfortably cold. Any advice?

      please can you send me some photos of the bars/clubs in zaandam and what kind of music they play, hours they are open and typical age group in each place.

      are there any to avoid, ive heard that it can be a bit unsavoury at times and the area is a little run down.

      How big (in miles) is Zaandam, and are there any trains from Amsterdam late a t night to Zaandam.
