I'm planning a trip to Amsterdam with my 15 y/o daughter. I have a preliminary itinerary and wanted to see if I was doing ok with the timing. We certainly aren't seeing everything, but we're trying to fit in some time in Paris too. Our main interest is history (mainly medieval and WWII). We would probably be arriving by train from Paris, I'm guessing about 11 or 1 depending on how early we decide we can get to the train. Also, how far in advance can we book the Thalys tickets? 90 days?
Canal boat trip (any suggestions or are they all the same?)
Not sure what else, maybe Begijnhof or Rijksmuseum (Masterpieces tour)
Anne Frank House tix in advance, daily 9A-10P
Self Guided WWII walk (goes past Nieuwe Kerk)
Dutch Resistance Museum daily 10A-5P, Sa/Su 11A-5P
Waterlooplein Market M-F 9-530. Sa 930-530 vs Albert Kuyp Market M-Sa 930-5 - we'd be looking for clothes, historical items, random things for DD, not food. Is one better than the other?
Museum Ons’Lieve Heer op Solder (Our Lord in the Attic hidden church)
?Amsterdam History Museum - would there be time for this?
Muiden Castle maybe Pampus fortress by boat or bus
Corrie Ten Boom House Haarlem (Tu-Sa 10-3:30P, free) - Keukenhof (€15, boat €7.50) - Dutch
Folklore Festival 6, 7 Apr bus 51 from Haarlem approx €21 including entrance
Market Garden/Eindhoven - either guided tour or on our own - still debating. Any recommendations for tour guides? So far I've found this one: www.historywalks.eu/main.php…
Any suggestions for what we should/shouldn't do on Easter? Obviously not the Corrie Ten Boom House as it's closed.
Any other suggestions would be great!
Thanks for any help!
