Trip Report Amsterdam Planner for the Clueless & Clued

Jump to last reply

I have had the fortune to spend vast periods of time in Amsterdam, my very favorite city in Europe, for decades now - both on business and pleasure. So this trip report will be a amalgam of literally hundreds of separate visits to Amsterdam! And like any Siren i am looking forward to visiting again late this December.

I have incessantly been exploring this multi-faceted and fascinating city and wish to here give a basic planner for clueless travelers who know little about Amsterdam and are planning sojourns there - and as well giving things well off the beaten path that i've stumbled on for folks planning return visits.

So here goes - in my first installments i will cover what are the MAIN SIGHTS, including several great MUSEUMS, must WALKS to take, BOAT TOURS, THE MUSEUM PASS; USING PUBLIC TRANSPORT; SAFETY TIPS; EASY AND GREAT DAY TRIPS TO CONSIDER, and more..

Amsterdam is a surprisingly compact town in the tourist core - no more than say 4 square miles i'd say and is thus eminently walkable. And by any accounts in what is one of the world's most beautiful and unique cities any walk i've ever taken was sheer pleasure, in spite of the oft wet, if rarely really cold, weather.
