From Schipol to ?

Jump to last reply

I am heading to Rotterdam in October, where I will be joining my husband mid-business trip. After a few days there, we will spend a weekend in Amsterdam. I am planning my arrival day and trying to decide if I should head directly to Rotterdam from Schipol or stop somewhere en route and make a day of it. Since I arrive at 7:30 and will be walking around like a zombie regardless, I was thinking a small town may be more amenable to that than Rotterdam, provided all stations have luggage storage (from this website I think they do: http://www.ns.nl/en/travellers/about-your-trip/travelling-by-train/facilities-at-the-station).
I am currently sorting out train schedules at http://www.ns.nl. It looks like I could stop in Leiden, Den Hague, or Delft (or more than one of those), have breakfast and/or lunch, explore, and then carry on to Rotterdam in the afternoon.
There have been some really helpful Netherlands posts recently, and I would be so grateful if I could get your tips on train travel: with this day of transit from Schipol to Rotterdam, possibly one other day trip, and a return journey to Amsterdam, and finally from Ams to the airport, should I purchase the chipkaart? If I am stopping at some of those other towns before Rotterdam, do I need the intercity supplement? Thanks in advance for your assistance--after typically going to villages on most recent vacations, navigating public transport has my head swimming. After a while on the website, I think I will be looking for manned ticket counters!
