8.5 hr layover at Schiphol

Jump to last reply

We have an 8.5 hour layover at Schiphol and are looking for some advice. We were in Amsterdam a couple of years ago and loved it, but are thinking that during this layover maybe we could do one of the day trips we wanted to do last time but never got a chance to do. We are thinking of Utrecht, Haarlem or Delft. I looked at the train schedules, and combining waiting time + travel time, they all seem to be about the same. When we take off the time for travel, immigration, checking back in, etc., I think that will leave us about 4 hours. Which of these do you think would be best for spending a few hours in the afternoon (on a Friday)? Is there something else we should consider? (It's the last Friday of Keukenhof but I think I would rather go earlier in the season.) We don't need to visit any specific museums and are mostly looking to have lunch and just wander around the city. Thanks for your help!
