    I have 4 days in Amsterdam. Would do you recommend?

    In Amsterdam, more then anything, walk around. Museums that I recommend: Van Gogh Museum (if you like Van Gogh and/or modenr art), Rijksmuseum (if you like 17th century art) and the Anne Frank House. For the latter you really want to make reservations well ahead through the museum's web site http://www.http://www.annefrank.org. Otherwise you may wait for an hour or more to get in. Reservations for the Van Gogh are also recomendable. The Rijksmuseum doesn't normally have waiting lines. Amsterdam is a relatively small and compact city, so for most people 1 or 2 days in the city itself are enough. You may consider an excursion. There are many destinations closeby, cities such as The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht, and seeing some of the countryside is also very interesting, especially the lowlands surrounding Amsterdam.

    3 days in Amsterdam.. What to see/do?

    Depends on the time of year, and your preferences. For sure: walk! Take a guided walking tour, prepare a route yourself, or just take off from your hotel with a map. A 2-3 hour guided tour shows you basically the whole city centre. Then spend the rest of the day just wandering around, sit down on a terrace (if weather permits), or in a typical " bruine kroeg", bar with brown interior. If you feel like it, wander around the Red Light district at night (believe it or not: it's the safest part of town at night). Also feel free to walk into a Coffee Shop, where soft drugs are sold. See for yourself what they are about. For sure visit 2 or 3 of these museums, depending on your preferences: Rijksmuseum (with Rembrandt's Night Watch; currently shows only part of the collection, re-opening on 13 April 2013), Stedelijk Museum (modern art), Van Gogh Museum (closed until 25 April 2013; part of collection now visible in Amsterdam Hermitage), Anne Frank House, or -when travelling with kids- NEMO science Museum. Recommendable excursions: Marken, Volendam and Zaanse Schans (open-air Windmill museum), and The Hague, Delft and Rotterdam. Also very special: Aalsmeer flower auction (largest one in the World), but only early in te morning, monday-wednesday, and friday. Basically there's just 1 bus excursions company left in the city, leaving from Damrak (near Central Station), Tours & Tickets. See TripAdvisor for (not very positive) reviews. In spring, be sure to go to the Keukenhof flower gardens, open from 21 March until 20 May, but at it's best end of April, beginning of May. almost 7 years ago

    Where to stay in Amsterdam June 2013 for 2 nights? We like boutique hotels.

    Best known and good quality boutique hotels in Amsterdam are The Dylan and Hotel Seven One Seven. Not boutique, but also recommendable are Hotel Pulitzer (fairly small rooms, however), and Sofitel Legend The Grand Amsterdam, which, in my opinion, is the best hotel in Amsterdam. Both are located very well, and have great local flavor because they are housed in historical buildings. The Pulitzer is located in a row of 17th century canal houses, and The Grand in a former, 15th century convent, in the 16th/17th century used as hotel for naval officers, with William of Orange, Holland's "Father of the Fatherland" as it's most famous guest, and as city hall until the present conversion to hotel. Recommendable boutique hotel for a smaller budget: Boutique Hotel View. I hope this helps. almost 7 years ago
