Hi ---can anyone please recommend any good day trips from Amsterdam by train ? Looking forward to hearing back.
There you have it: http://tinyurl.com/46j8feq
I heartily recommend # 37/17 on the map, well worth it. Only 1 hr by train, a very nice open air museum to enjoy and a super nice old city, that once was THE big city in the Netherlands, where West Indian ships departed from. If you fancy taking a holiday from your holiday, you could stretch it a bit and head to Texel (train to Den Helder, a short bus ride and a ferry). Nice island, beaches, lots of sheeps. And a good brewery :)
Thank you Eire Lover --Brugge looks especially interesting ---Thanks very much --appreciated !
If you've not been to Brugge, it should be high on your list. You'll want to spend the night.
The cathedral in Cologne is amazing. I found the rest of Cologne lackluster. We did have a lovely tapas dinner and drinking the Kölsch beer is fun and delicious.
Hey Chuck ;
Thanks --I'll certainly look into your suggestions 1 Appreciated.
