    • 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.

      Will tulips be in bloom by April 6th?

      Amsterdam Mar 24, 2014 at 7:41 PM

      Fodors says:
      "Timing can be volatile, but there's a general progression from croci in the middle of March, daffodils and narcissi from the end of March to the middle of April, early tulips and hyacinths from the second week of April to the end of the month, and late tulips immediately afterward. An early or late spring can shift these approximate dates by as much as two weeks."

      We are wondering if, by chance Amsterdam is having an early spring or a warm spell. We'd love to see the tulips!

    • 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!

      I'm very thankful to Giampiero for the fact the Zaanse Schans came on the map last week. I've seen some 120 members have to move their Zaanse Schans info. So, move your Zaanse Schans stuff over. PJ
