Looking for specifics of what to see/eat on 8 hr layover in Amsterdam

Jump to last reply

Next month we will have an almost 8 hr layover in Amsterdam. We will be flying from Kilimanjaro, Tanzania for 11.5 hrs then the layover then another 10 hr flight back to the US. There will be 5 of us (ages 18,22,30,50,50). I have already read that it is easy to take the train into the city and that we can store luggage at the airport. I am interested in getting specific recommendations on what we should see and where we could eat. Our flight lands at 7:15am and our next flight takes off at 2:55pm so will mostly be in the city in the morning. Not looking to accomplish a lot - would just like to stroll along the canals, maybe take a canal cruise and have some good food. I tried to get online tickets to the Anne Frank House but the only time enough tickets were available was in the afternoon (too late for us). I guess we could queue up in the morning and see how long the line is or wait for a proper visit to Amsterdam and get online tickets.

So, if we arrive at the Central Station in the morning where would you suggest we go? Best canal view, walk, etc. Thinking maybe eat some pastries in the morning and then a proper lunch later in the day before we head back to the airport, so would appreciate recommendations for both of those.

Thanks for your help. With a short amount of time I just want to be sure that we have a good plan and use our time wisely!
