There is a website called called allemolens.nl. "Alle molens" is dutch for all mills. Based on the name only, I would say that this is the resource that you are looking for. Unfortunately the page is Dutch only. It states Hier vindt u informatie over alle molens in Nederland, bestaand en verdwenen. Which translates to: This resource contains ...
The "fast lane" is for people with prepaid tickets, so if you buy a ticket before you get there you're set. Of course a lot of people do just that so the fast lane at peak times may not be that fast :) Very early is usually good. Be there just around the time they open if you can. From other tourist attractions in the area (I've not myself visited ...
One day seems reasonable, but if you get bored easily, you can spend only half a day. It is very beautiful in Keukenhof, and not too crowded to enjoy the view. No, the line was not too long when we visited. One day seems a bit of a stretch though, depending on what time you want to get there. 3/4 is more like it, but it depends on a person.
Living close to the Keukenhof I would suggest you come early in the morning, spend as much time in the garden as you like, and then check all of the flower fields around the Keukenhof. A full day should be enough even on busy days.
The garden is huge and I spent more than 3 hours inside because I wanted to see everything. You can skip the ticket queue by buying your ticket online. The problem with a day trip is only the drive to the place. It took me longer than it should have been because of the heavy traffic once I was almost there. But a day trip is still doable, especially if you ...
It's not that bad, coming around midday and spending a few hours is perfectly doable. There will be some waiting at the entrance and a lot of walking but you can see a lot in, say, 3 hours. To give you a baseline, I have been to both type of attractions several times and often waited much longer at Amsterdam's main museums. Buying the tickets online can also ...
You can use an OV-chipkaart (personal or anonymous) to travel on trains in the Netherlands but you will need to activate it at a NS vending machine and to have at least €20 credit (boarding fee) when getting on the train. It's fine to go from Schiphol to the centre since you can probably use up the remaining credit during your stay in Amsterdam but it's a ...
If you buy a day pass, you don't need to buy a €7.5 OV-chipkaart but will get a disposable chip-card instead. You do need to check in and check out like a regular OV-chipkaart each time you use public transports. According to the same website, those passes are not valid on trains. I haven't checked in the last few weeks but until recently, it was still ...
Unless it has changed very recently, 24h, 48h, 72h, and 96h cards are same type single use paper-with-chip cards as the single ride cards which you buy in tram.
