First time in Amsterdam, how many days?

Jump to last reply

We're going to have a long layover in Amsterdam enroute to Portugal. How many days would be sufficient to get a good taste of the city? We do not drink, party or go clubbing or anything like that. We do like nature, walking tours, looking at architecture, eating local cuisine, etc.
My only image of Amsterdam is of drugs and prostitution, but I have been hearing so much lately that there are other things to see and do there, and many friends have told us that the locals were very friendly. Since we need to fly through there anyway, our airline will allow us a layover for as many days as we want.

Any thoughts?
