I visited Amstedam for 6 days in the end of May, flying to Schiphol from Copenhagen and made daytrips to Rotterdam, den Haag and Utrecht. I stayed at a hostel in the red light district, called Heart of Amsterdam. It might feel strange, but the area is actually pretty safe, even after dark, and it is centrally located between Dam and Nieuwmarkt. The weather was really good during my visit, unusual for Holland, it was about 25C and sun all the time. I made day trips to Rotterdam, the Hague and Utrecht, the 4 biggest cities of Holland (separate threads will be created for them). You can reach all of them within just one hour by train. I also passed by Leiden, Delft and Haarlem. The 3 biggest cities in Holland are all so called “multicultural”cites, they have about 50% immigrants, something that surprised me since I haven’t been in Holland since the 80s, as a child. I visited 4 museums, met new friends at the hostel took a ride at the canal boat and went to 2 rock concerts.
