Roaming Holland in two days - Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht and Den Haag

So I've been roaming the lower lands back and fourth some weeks ago - by train through the Netherlands in two days through four major cities! The average travel time is 45 minutes and costs about 10 euros each way with the Sprinter-Regios, the advantages of small Holland.

We begin in Amsterdam, the capital, but not the seat of government.

Nice! Look forward to the rest.

The Anne Frank house is still the original. What they added is an extension next to it to serve as the entry and as some form of exhibition space.

The Grote- or Laurenskerk is the only remnant of the medieval Dutch city.
