Visit Amsterdam - When?

by joanamopa

Hi!

We were preparing our visit to Amsterdam for June but we have seen Keukenhof closes in May so we are reconsidering our travel dates. Is it worth visiting Keukehhof?

Other option would be to postpone the travel until May 2012 (from 28th April to 2nd May)but we have heard 30th April is a very important bank holiday in Amsterdam (Queen's Day or something like that)with a lot of people at streets. We prefer to see the city peacefully and perhaps at this time is everything overcrowded, isn't it?

What do you think about this? Thank you.

Indeed, April 30 is Queens day in the Netherlands and streets, restauarants, cafes etc will be absolutely overcrowded in Amsterdam (and a lot of other Dutch cities too).

Keukenhof is nice to visit, but there is a lot more in Holland and June might be a good period for a visit.

happy travels
Jaap

June is my second favorite time to visit Amsterdam---My first is the last week in August when they have the Uitmarkt in the Museumplein and other places. My last trip there, I took the Waterland bus from Centraal Station and visited some of the towns north of Amsterdam for 7 euros (all day hop on/off bus ticket)----June would be a great time for short sleeves and warm sun, and shouldnt be TOO crowded.....
have a great trip!

April 24 it will be the Easter weekend.

I think you should avoid Amsterdam from mid-April into the first week of May if you want to have a peaceful visit.

Mid-May will be a good time with fair weather and the Keukenhof gardens still open.

Google "Koninginnedag" or "Queensday" and see if you really want to miss this great party!

Yes, it will be crowded but there will be an atmosphere in Amsterdam that is hard to find anywhere else...IMO you should not miss it...

Many tourists plan their holiday just to be there on April 30th. You can see the city peacefully the rest of the days...

If you like flowers, Keukenhof is a must. If you don't like flowers, it is going to be extremely boring...

Greetz,

The Distinctive Architecture of Amsterdam

by zrim

I don't exactly know what the correct term for the distinctive row buildings is. Each building is exceedingly narrow and usually ranges from four to five stories in height. The buildings look very similar until you take the time to examine the roof lines. Almost every building will have a unique gable that points to the use the building had in prior days. Many gables have maratime symbols, while others will feature symbols pointing to the trade of the original owners, such as bakers, butchers, cobblers etc.

This particular view shows the row of buildings as seen across the Damrak. At the time this was our first real view of the city of Amsterdam--little did we know that behind these unassuming looking buildings was the teaming fringes of the redlight district with countless bars, restaurants, coffee houses and sex shops.

walk the streets along the canals. The city centre can be seen by foot in about a half day. There are many sidewalk cafes and restaurants, not to mention the coffee houses. Meeting up with a childhood friend!

Tourist map

by Rupanworld

The first thing one should do after coming to Amsterdam is ofcourse get a tourist map. you have two choices. One, go up to first floor of Centraal station to tourist information centre and buy a map for 2 euros, or buy it for some price at any other place or stoer around. Second option, that I really liked is that just go to the map machine in the station near the ticket machines where you can just print out the map with directions in dark black line as you require. The first photo is the one that I printed out from the machine and the second one is a photo of the machine itself. well this photo is one of the machine frome Rotterdam station. The machine at Amsterdam station looks same, but is in blue colour.

The Rijksmuseum... Rembrandt van Rijn

by sim1



Rembrandt van Rijn (1606 - 1669)
The Nightwatch

This is the most famous painting in the Rijksmuseum, The Nightwatch. But it actually has another title: the 'Company of Frans Banning Cocq and Willem van Ruytenburch'. The picture is a militia painting: a group portrait of a division of the civic guard. Rembrandt depicted the group of militiamen in an original way. He did not paint them in neat row or sitting at their annual banquet, rather, he recorded a moment: a group of militiamen have just moved into action and are about to march off.

Here is a link to the website of the Rijksmuseum which shows you the painting in a much larger size. It's wonderful to view the painting like that, and see all the details. It is big, so it will probably take some time to load :
