One way out of the 'need €20 on the OV chip card for the train journey' on the way back to Schiphol is using a bus. I recently researched and found that there is a bus from Leidseplein which does not take more time than traveling from Leidseplein to Centraal station and on to the airport. Bus 197 which costs € 3.09 on your chip card. I used http://9292.nl/en ...

There are train passes where you can just hop on a regular train with just the pass in hand (Thalys is a different animal). And in general (once again: not the Thalys) you don't need a reserved seat. So, there's no such thing as a train selling out. Given there is one like every 30 minutes it's reasonable to think they don't.

The Amsterdam to Rotterdam travel has three kinds of trains, the normal speed commuter trains and the high speed trains within the Netherlands and lastly the International high speed trains to Paris. Tickets for the trains within the Netherlands are not timed and you can use any train on the day you have the ticket for. If you want to use the high speed ...

Flights to Amsterdam and other destinations in the Schengen area depart from another set of gates than flights out of the Schengen area and you will have to go through a passport check and get an entry stamp to reach them. By contrast, when you land in Amsterdam, there won't be any ...

It can be hard to visit Amsterdam and not see the "sights" of legalised ...

Places selling cannabis (“coffeshops“) aren't restricted to a particular part of town and can't be avoided entirely (to be accurate, their locations are in fact regulated through a permit system and they are required, e.g., not to be too close from a school, but they are not restricted to one specific neighbourhood). On the other hand, there is not much to ...

Unless you feel the need to experience the high speed train, that does not get to full speed on that line anyhow, take the regular train. I would guess you can carry your 25 kg dog in a bag, in which case it is traveling for free on the regular trains. It can walk to the platform, you only have to carry it into the train to fit the rules, and it should sit ...

Compared to the UK and the USA dogs are more often accepted but not all the time. In trains they travel for free if they travel in a bag you can carry, so big dogs have to have a 'dog' ticket. All dogs can sit on train seats when there are available as long as the seat is covered before the dog gets on. Sitting under the seat is more appreciated though. You ...

Let me start with your first question. Zeeburg Park&Ride seems to be located here. I haven't actually been there, but if you look around the area with Street View, you will find a sign telling you that it is indeed Zeeburg P&R. You can use this online tool to calculate the different routes to get there. It being a Park&Ride, it is just next to a ...
