Amsterdam Day Trips

Jump to last reply

I have been fortunate to glean lots of great information and ideas from previous posts, but am now looking for some specific guidance regarding potential day trips for our upcoming Amsterdam trip in May. We will have 8 full days in Amsterdam (this is not including travel days, and we have an apartment booked for the entire trip in the de Pijp neighborhood), and based on our preferred activities have allotted three days for what we want to see and do in Amsterdam (these activities include the museums we are interested in visiting, flower market, walking tours and canal tours, photography tours). Each of the following areas/towns listed below interest us, but I am now considering if we should/can combine a couple in one day, and/or renting a car for one or more of the days would be more beneficial than the train (we are comfortable with both options).
- Leiden
- Den Haag
- Gouda
- Utrecht
- Edam
- Delft
- Kinderdijk
- Zaanse Schans

These are in no particular order, and other than Leiden (which looks really lovely) we are not pressed to see one more than the other, and don't necessarily expect to see them all (but wouldn't it be great if we did!) We are arriving May 20, so will miss the chance to see Keukenhof Gardens. Also Rotterdam did not grab us when doing some initial research. So, a long winded way to ask - is 5 days sufficient to do the bulk of these trips, should we combine a few in one day, and is renting a car a better (more efficient, or more scenic) option?
Appreciate and love to hear your thoughts and opinions as always!
