Mon 10th - The museum of Bags and purses

Tue 11th - Paradise Swingers Club

Wed 12th - Artemis Zoo

How on earth are we supposed to suggest anything meaningful if you give us no idea of your age, interests, likes & dislikes?

Perhaps it is better you start with the Top Question to the right of this forum 'What can I see and do in Amsterdam?' or the travel guide which you'll find under the 'Amsterdam' tab at the top of this page. Once you have read those, if you have any more specific questions, by all means come back to us.

our itinerary plan is to visit the Jordaan, Rembrandtplein, Anne Frank 's house, Leiden Square and do the Amsterdam canal cruise in these two days. Please suggest whether we can add some more attractions to make this a perfect short trip.

The best advice I can give to you, or anyone, on such a short trip is this:

- Take the canal cruise earlier rather than later in your stay. From it you'll get ideas of places to visit/see.

- Relax! Amsterdam is a city best enjoyed at leisure. Take time to just sit on a terrace and people watch or just wander aimlessly through the streets.

If you like Flamenco dances, on 11 august there's a performance by Maria Juncal in the famous and very beautiful Concertgebouw. Gives you also a chance to see this world-famous temple of (mostly classical) music.

concertgebouw.nl/concertagenda/…

I would get a ticket on the podium (20 euro), otherwise you'd be sitting far away.

Is there really a museum of bags & purses?

I've been lurking on this forum reading posts as we have a few days in Amsterdam next June.

That museum would be close to heaven for me! Throw in shoes and I will swoon! LOL.

Travelbugmississauga, yes there is, right in the centre. It used to be someone's hobby in their home in Amsterveen but they became so popular that it's now a full-on museum in an amazing building in central Amsterdam, and I have to say it sounds silly but it really is interesting and fun. For example also tells you the history of ball books and such. http://www.tassenmuseum.nl/en/home

If you're into shoes you may enjoy this website of an Amsterdam shoe designer (a very cool lady): http://www.hestervlamings.com/

Enjoy!
