Alternative to Amsterdam

by Sunryze

I am wondering if it is a good idea to stay in Haarlem and visit Amsterdam? Has anyone done this and what did you think??? I am in my early 30's and enjoy hostel environments and meeting people...any suggestions? And do you know how busy the hostels are in Haarlem?

Haarlem is lovely and only 30 minutes by train to A'dam center----I usually stay in Amsterdam, but your idea has lots to offer, and you should enjoy it tremendously----VT has lots of tips for Haarlem, check them out!
googling hostels in Haarlem brought up Hotel de Weyman on Hoofdstraat 248...

I am not in your age group, but we have stayed in Haarlem twice and find it a wonderful city. It is easy access to Amsterdam but also has a lot to offer of its own - Hans Memling Museum, Grote Kerk (spelling?), windmills, Ten Boom house and lots of really good restaurants. The main square is a great place for joining the locals and visitors and meeting people. There is also a lovely market there on Saturday mornings.

Haarlem is also close to the beaches.

I actually really like Haarlem. It is very pictureseque and has an excellent affordable shopping precinct.

As others have said its a quick commute into Amsterdam and I would expect hotel/hostel rates would be slightly lower. It would be a good choice if you are wanting to stay outside the city centre.

Travel Tips for Amsterdam

Snow in Amsterdam

by mightywease

The sky seems to hang just above the top of the Westerkirk as snow flakes dissolve in the canals, which form a fingerprint in the white landscape. Dogs streak across Vondel Park slewing up sprays of ice as they skid and bank around. Thick boots soon turn the flakes to sludge in Kalverstratt and the canal sides become ridges where the snow has been swept from doorways and steps.

walk - all the streets are...

by lee_brown

walk - all the streets are unlike any other city, just be careful that you are not run down by a bicycle.
Even the bicycles are worthy of a look - some have trailers attached, often carrying the pet dog.
For more typical sights look at my travelogue. The higgedly piggedly houses, some seem to be about to fall into the next one

COFFEESHOPS ! "Stay on the grass".......

by La_Holandesa

Coffeeshops in Holland are joints licensed to sell weed. These coffeeshops can sell weed but not alcoholic drinks.
Warning!! Dutch coffee shops are licenced to sell small quantities of cannabis to adults over 18 ! In case of doubt you will be asked for your ID to check it.
It is funny to see guys puffing away on their joints while sipping cocacola/fanta :o)

The myth that drugs are legal in the Netherlands is just that, myth. Soft drugs are tolerated, and that's all. This means you can buy weed or hash without risking arrest, that you can carry a small amount of soft drugs with you, that you can grow a small number of plants at your place for personal use, that you are free to roll one and enjoy it inside a coffeeshop or at your place, but this does not mean you can behave like a teenager on his first booze run and behave like a jerk.
Smoking dope in public places is not ok, and even some nightlife locales will discourage you from rolling and lighting up a phat one. Smoking on the street is also not regarded in a good way by the honest hardworking folks, so do not do it unless you are alone. If you think you won't bother anyone with your joint, then smoke it, otherwise find a suitable place for the recreational break. This is sane advice, it's meant to help you avoid trouble with your neighbours or with the police. Also, some hotels are not too fond of smoking guests, so better ask beforehand in case there are no ashtrays in your room.

Here more about the COFFEESHOPS! The Netherlands Coffeeshop Guide, the home for Coffeeshops information on the Net. SOME COFFEESHOPS IN AMSTERDAM:

Herengracht 133
It's not well known to tourists, but the friendly staff and cozy interior, along with a full bar, make this coffeeshop with the unforgettable name one of the local favourites.

Greenhouse Effect
Oudezijds Voorburgwal 191
One of three sister shops, the others are located at Tolstraat 91, and the Waterlooplein 345. They grow their own here, in their own greenhouse, and the hybrids and mutations that they develop rank consistently high in various categories in the yearly Cannabis Cup.

De Tweede Kamer
Heisteeg 6
A small and friendly coffeeshop just around the corner from Cafe Luxembourg, off the Spui.

De Rokerij II
Singel 8
Now this is a cool place, probably one of our favourite places in Amsterdam. The music, mainly chill-out sounds, is tasteful.

Two sister coffeeshops, one on the Amstel close to Rembrandtsplein and the other off Leidseplein.

Jonge Roelensteeg 12-14, off Nieuwe Zijds Voorburgwal
A small, nice, conveniently located place.

Bloemdwarsstraat 1e

Dutch Flowers
Singel 387
Simple small interior, no bar, excellent coffee.

Brouwersgracht 11
Around the corner from the Doors, Bulldog and Rokerij II,

Oudebrugsteed 16
Just off the Damrak, a short stroll away from Centraal Station and the RLD.Another is located on the Spui, near Hotel Cok City.

Oudezijds Voorburgwal 90
They claim this is the original coffeeshop of Amsterdam, dating back to the 70s. Like Amsterdam's Hard Rock Cafe.

Visit the Anne Frank Museum,...

by ZoeB

Visit the Anne Frank Museum, it is one of the best places I have visited, to see where the little girl lived who tragically died in World War II Wandering around the quaint streets and feeling very relaxed and absorbed in the atmosphere of a wonderful city

Where there’s water, there are bridges

by Pavlik_NL

As for the many canals, bridges were of vital importance to the growing town Amsterdam. The amount of bridges grew with the population and traffic through history. In the 16th century a citymap of C. Anthonisz (1544) shows 52 bridges and 6 semi-bridges. Around 1600 is was already grown to a total of 110 bridges plus 10 others. Within the “new” Amsterdam centre area (after the enormous reconstructions in the 17th century) there were no less then 297 bridges and 9 other crossing-the-canal means (1732). The present Amsterdam metropolitan area counts the amazing amount of 1539 bridges of which there are 252 within the centre ring.
