Netherlands -- seven days in west, not Amsterdam?

Jump to last reply

Hello:

On very short notice, I will have seven days in NL, arriving by train from Cologne on Saturday 16 June and departing one week later from Schiphol. With this short notice, booking is a bit challenging -- and there's not much time to research.

I have had several 2-day layovers at AMS before so I do not want to visit Amsterdam.

I wish to go to smaller towns, etc. just to putter around and enjoy being in NL. I will be on public transport as well as water and bicycle when possible. Traveling light with a 40L backpack.

Three areas I have targeted to visit are (perhaps two nights in each):
1. Rotterdam/ Kinderdijk
2. Haarlem/Delft/Leiden(?)
3. Alkmaar/Edam/Hoorn and the rest of the peninsula.

Does this sound reasonable? If so, can you please suggest favorite accomodations (single, middle aged, budget is about 60 Eu/night, don't care about breakfast or "en suite").

Also suggestions about favorites activities or interesting transportation very welcome.

Many thanks -- I don't have much time to research!
