The 9 Streets, the Bijenkorf department store, the museums... Do we really need to entice you to go on a day trip to Amsterdam? Probably not, but here are a few tips nonetheless:
The 9 Streets
Where are the best and fun shops in Amsterdam? Without doubt, in the 9 Streets. The 9 Streets is probably one of Amsterdam's most picturesque neighbourhoods nestled between its idyllic canals. Check out the 9 Streets website to find out if there are any special offers available.
The Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk and the Van Gogh! Museumplein is better than ever before, now that all these museums have been renovated and extended.
Tip: Buy your tickets for the Rijksmuseum online, because at the weekend and in the holidays queues at the ticket desks can get really long.
The Bijenkorf department store
The Bijenkorf will soon be revamped, but one thing is for certain – it won't be losing any of its grandeur or splendour. On the ground floor, you're sure to find most of the world's leading brands. The Bijenkorf's coffee, sandwiches and chocolates are also all incredibly delicious.
From Muiderzand Marina, it's a fifteen-minute walk to the Almere Poort railway station. Trains leave for Amsterdam every fifteen minutes.
