amsterdam with an 80 year old mother

I will be in Amsterdam at the end of May with my 80 year old mother. She will celebrate her birthday in the city. her walking is not very good but she wants some fun and excitement. Any ideas please?

I'm going with my 65 year old mother in April ~ same sort of issues: little flexibility, walking really tires her out.

I made sure I booked a ground floor apartment (some of those stairways are VERY steep). The canal boat tours are great ~ some are hop-on; hop off and that can be a better way to travel and see a lot of the city at the same time.

Most of the bigger hotels have a wheelchair that you can use. So your mother could walk a little and then get pushed when tired. I have done this method quite a few times and it does mean you cget around and do many more things.

Good luck and have fun
