2 Days in Amsterdam next week - early march

Hi,

Will be in Amsterdam on Friday and Saturday next week - looked at cycling tours and Keukenhof but apparently its low season or too cold now so most are closed.

Any good suggestion for a day or half day tour to countryside - just a bit out of the city? Or cycling tours that are open?

Do you recommend joining a walking tour or jus diy is good enough?

VanGogh museum - needs prebooking?

Appreciate the advice!

Not sure you understand how the weather is here especially if you live in a tropical climate. I would really think twice about cycling out into the country. There is no cover and if the wind is blowing like it is today not only will it be a challenge to bike out there with wind and rain it will not be pleasant.

For VG tickets you can book online or just buy tickets at a Tours and Tickets place around town and walk right in to the museum.

Thanks! Indeed a good reminder of the weather! Probably cycling in the city might be a better option? Or jus walk around? Coming from a congested city jus wanna get a taste of how cycling in a city feels like really...

Or a visit to zaanse schans? Assume it's open all year.. will this be a good half day or day trip?

Keep in mind that bicyclists in Amsterdam are on their way somewhere - they're going to work, to school, etc. and they move fast. They're accustomed to all the other bikes plus motor scooters, motorcycles, cars, and lots of pedestrians. Throw a tourist into the mix... it's much more difficult than it sounds. If you want to rent a bike, try pedaling around Vondelpark first before venturing out into the streets.
