I will be in AMS with my husband for 7 days in August. We have never been to AMS or the Netherlands. I am struggling to choose a couple of day trips that will be fun, worthwhile, unique and picturesque. We are thinking of buying the anonymous OV Chipkaart to make paying for travel easier (if this is the case) and will also purchase the Museumkaart. We are both fit, independent travelling middle-lifers (or a little beyond) and do not mind walking or biking.
I have done some research and the following areas/attractions/towns seem to be feasible and may meet the criteria above. Am I off base here? Which would you choose and why? Which can be combined to form a full-day day trip? Are there others you would recommend I have not included? Thanks very much for your help.
- Alkmaar - on cheese market day
- Harlem/Zanse Schaans
- Zuiderzee Museum
- Leiden/Den Hague/Delft/Gouda
- De Hoge Veluwe Park/Kroller Muller
