5 hours in Amsterdam

I'm doing the Dutch dash and have 5 hours in Amsterdam, I would like to go on the canal trip ( I hear lovers is best ) and maybe a mooch around the market, is the market far from the station where I will be dropped off ? And is it the Browns cafe to look out for ( no funny smokes needed ) 😊 I have two teenagers with me, any and many tips would help me, thanks in advance. ( end of October 17 )

Five hours------- just take any canal cruise you see. The differences between companies are fairly minor amd will not be apperanet to a first timer.

Then walk, eat, look,walk, have a drink, walk some more.

A perfect five hours.

I would recommend visiting the district called De Pijp. There is the most famous market of Amsterdam, the Albert Cuypmarket. To get the most out of your visit to De Pijp, use the following walking/biking route: https://www.youtube.com/watch…
