Hi, I am traveling to the Netherlands with a study abroad class and I would like to visit this site on one of my free half days.I know I will be free to explore on my own around 12 in the afternoon. Im wondering I would have sufficient time to travel to the site and back and have enough time to see everything. My free afternoon would be on March 24th. Any help with this would be appreciated.
