Ten things to AVOID in Amsterdam

What would they be?

AVOID getting the wheels of your rental bike stuck in the tram rails: it's a sure way to break a bone.

AVOID being separated from your baggage on the train ride into town: there's not much street crime in Amsterdam, but the Centraal Station and the train are where it will happen to you first.

And I'm sure somebody can share potentially life-saving advice on what combination of mushrooms and other drugs to avoid if you don't want to end up jumping out of a third-storey window believing you can fly.

:-)

I think it isn´t predictable if there will be long lines at museums. Last Wednesday there was no (long) line at the Rijksmuseum, although many people are complaining about the lines at some days.

Here are the opening hours of Van Gogh Museum, some museums have closed on Monday
