with the internet it is easy to search the web to find these answer on the weather. I think it is silly to post these questions when you have the tools in front of you to get a instant reply to your question by just trying the internet google search. Cheers Tommy x p.s. not saying you are lazy, but the answers to your questions were just a touch of te finger.

Travel Tips for Amsterdam

Children's 'Playground'

by 36waterfalls

If you've read my tip on the Python Bridge, that connects Sporenburg with Borneo Island in the Amsterdam Eastern Docklands Area, you will have discovered how much I love this one!

My sweetest memory about this bridge is that it had children swinging from it!
For some reason (and I don't think this is legal!) there was a rope on the side of the Python and some kids jumped off the bridge swinging on it.
But it was good fun watching ;-)

The city is not THAT big...

by dreamworld

The city is not THAT big comparing to other capitals in Europe, Amsterdam has a population of roughly 900000 and it's easy to walk around downtown. Still the 'official' (so much known) way of moving in the city would be with a bicycle since everything has been done for that. A boat tour on the numerous channels is also something worth to do.
Apart the famous 'Red Light district' (entertainment) area, there's plenty of historic sites/museums/galleries to see, check a local website for details.
I would recommend an average stay of 3 nights/days to have a basic look at the city. Outside the city, some excursions can be done, I especially recommend a place called Koekenhof (?) where thousands of flowers are cultivated in a beautiful garden.

One thing that I thought was...

by rtschneider

One thing that I thought was so cool about Amsterdam is how many house boats are there! It is like something I have never seen anywhere else. And many of the house boats addes a lot of charm to the canals.

Be advised that many shops, restaurants & museums close on Monday,
We found a lot of the shops in the Nine little alleys closed as well as some eating places
I suppose the dutch deserve a rest day as well!!
It can be a bit unfortunate when you plan a long weekend so best to check that the museums you wish to visit are open on Monday.
