Hey guys, hoping for some input on my 3 day layover in Amsterdam. I'm not sure whether i'm fitting too little or too much in my 3 day stay in November.
So far, my schedule for the trip is:
1) Rijks musueum
2) Albert cuyp (seen many people recommend doing a 'mobile lunch' there)
3) Walking tour
5) Ajax-Barcelona game
1) Zaanse Schaans (is it recommended to bike there from Amsterdam using the ferry as a crossing?)
2) Canal cruise (in Amsterdam)
1) Anne frank house (already booked ticket)
2) Haarlem (not sure whether i should fit this into my plans??)
3) Dutch Resistance Museum
4) Van Gogh (open late on Fridays so i left it last)
As I said, i'd like to bike to Zaanse schaans if it's worth it and the weather isn't too bad (for reference, i'm from canada!). I don't know if that will end up being a 'day trip' or if i'll get back to Amsterdam by 3-4pm? I'm not sure whether i should just cut out Haarlem given the limited time and the fact that most museums close at 5pm. I'm leaving "Day 3" to be able to do anything that i couldn't accomplish on my second day. Perhaps i should just fit in a cheese tasting and another activity instead of haarlem?
I'm also open to any suggestions! :)
(Some background, i'm a master's student studying politics in Europe and Russia so i have great interest in art, history, culture etc. and less so in indulging in nightlife. In fact, i have no plans on it)
