Betty asks…

How strict is Amsterdam for clubs?

Me and 3 friends are wanting to visit amsterdam in July, me and one of my friends are 18 whereas the other 2 are 17, I know they can’t buy weed but can they still get into clubs? if so which ones, if we get there before say 12 will they be more leinient?

Yaz answers:

That all depends on who’s at the door and if they have had any recent trouble. A small group of good looking kids who do not seem to be looking for trouble do stand a chance of encountering leniency.

List the highlights of the club scene. All clubs will have an English language website so it’s a matter of visiting these and find out the age limits.

Maria asks…

How much money to travel to Amsterdam?

Me & my girl friend are planning on visiting Amsterdam next year July. And we live in Toronto, ON. How much would each ticket cost? And preferably if you could tell us about a round trip fare. And also are things down there expensive? I want to know just how much money to bring,
haha please & thanks (:

Yaz answers:

The Flight Prices will vary depending on what airline you go on, and what class you are in. You will also need to get a passport if you don’t already have one. When you get there, you will need to find a hotel to stay in, and get some of their money. They use the Euro, which can be quite expansive.
So in my opinion, you should take a fair bit.

David asks…

Going to Europe for my honeymoon in July. What is a better city to visit, Rome or Amsterdam?

Yaz answers:

Rome (and Italy in general) can be very romantic, but Rome in July is supposed to be extremely hot and crowded. Amsterdam will be crowded, too, but you probably won’t have to deal with the heat issues.

Donna asks…

Good places to visit nearby Amsterdam?

Hi

I will be travelling to Amsterdam between July 29- Aug 8. Could you guys please advise what are the best cities (preferably in other countries like Switzerland) that I can travel to and come back in the same day. I would like to travel for 2 or 3 days like that. And what could be the cost of train ticket also? Thanks a lot.
thanks for the answer. can i visit some country side in holland or places where i can see the tulips?

Yaz answers:

It’s too late for the tulips. If I were you I’d spend the time exploring Amsterdam as there is a lot to see and do. Most of the rest of the Netherlands can be easily reached by train. Fare depends on your final destination and if you purchase a round trip ticket. Switzerland is way too far from Amsterdam for a day trip.

Nancy asks…

Things to see and do ub Amsterdam?

We are planning to visit amsterdam for 3 days some time in July. So would appreciate any tips and advise on places to visit and things to see, like tulip gardens, windmills, typical dutch stuff ?

Yaz answers:

July is the wrong time for tulip gardens, for that you need to come in April.
But windmills will be available, as are pretty villages, dikes and polders.

An easy daytrip from Amsterdam is Zaanse Schans:
http://www.zaanseschans.nl/
There will be tours, but you can easily do it by train. There is no entry charge, they charge you for each separate building you enter, although there are some free to enter things too.
Trains run every 30 minutes and take 17 minutes, a day return ticket will cost € 5,20 from one of the ticket machines. The station you will use is Koog Zaandijk.
This can be done for a day, but also for just half a day.

An other option is going to Enhuizen, a small Dutch city with a good open air museum:
http://www.zuiderzeemuseum.nl/?language=en
Travel time by train is just under an hour, trains run each 30 minutes and it cost € 18,70 for a day return.

There are many more options for a day outside Amsterdam, there are many tours available.
If you read in the older questions about Amsterdam, you will find most of them mentioned.

For information about Amsterdam itself, I like this site:
http://www.amsterdam.info/
It has museums, walks, shopping, restaurants, and on and on.

George asks…

Amsterdam Tourism Market: What is the tourism cannabis market compared to the brothel market in Amsterdam?

I am trying to find stats of the tourism market in Amsterdam. Does anyone know any credible sources to find this information, perhaps an article.

I am trying to determine how much of the tourism market is cannabis versus legal brothels in Amsterdam.

Yaz answers:

You are trying to compare an illegal section with a semi legal but not accepted section and you expect the financial information to be available online? Dream on.

Besides that, not all tourist do just one or the other or even either.
The municipality of Amsterdam might be the place to find some answers, as they did investigate the situation before starting with the current clean-up of the prostitution businesses.
As many of the brothels that are closed because of that were illegal or owned by people who had other illegal activities, you might be able to find more information online now that you used to be able to, but still most will not be available.

Sandra asks…

Amsterdam Tourism?

Hello,
I am planning one of my first vacations with my girlfriend. I would like to go to the Netherlands, during the summer of 2008.
I really don’t know much about the country in regards to history, and physical layout. but I do know that I want to see the Van Gogh muesem, the Ann Frank house, and be a stones throw away (no pun intended) from some quality coffeshops.

My question’s about this are…
-How reasonable (or unreasonable) are airline tickets around summer time?
-and hotel prices
-Where should I try to find a room based on my goals for this vacation. with consideration of relying on public transportation or taxis.
-Whats the deal with the canal system?
-What should I look out for?
-Any good recommendations for site seeing?

Yaz answers:

I followed the advice and info given on those websites and I had a fantastic time in Amsterdam! Don’t forget to buy the I Amsterdam card! It can be really useful and save you some money, especially if you are to move around a lot. I used public transportation only once, as you can easily move around on foot!

http://homepages.cwi.nl/~steven/amsterdam.html

I stayed at the Owl Hotel near Leidseplein, which is a square where tram stops are and also some restaurants and coffee shops.
The only thing you should look out for is pickpockets, but I have to tell you that I’ve never felt safer anywhere else in the world!

Apart from the Van Gogh Museum and Anne Frank Huis, you should visit Madame Tussaud’s, Rijksmuseum, Dam square, the Red Light district, the zoo and Heineken Museum (an amazing experience, plus three free glasses of beer!)

Have a great time!

Susan asks…

Can i enter amsterdam for tourism with business schengen visa for sweden?

I got business schengen visa to sweden and i am planning to stay there for 4 days, my first entry to europe will be through amsterdam where i want to stay there for 2 days tourism.

is it possible to enter amsterdam with business visa?
As i didnt isue the visa from Netherlands embassy , will the 4 days in sweden be considered as main destination or i will face problems in amsterdam airport?

Yaz answers:

I might be wrong but as far as I know once you have a Schengen visa for one member State then that visa is good for all memeber States. Ireland and the UK aren’t in Schengen at the moment. So, if you get a Schengen visa for say Germany you can jump on a flight and go to say Spain without any problems as far as I know. But you should probably phone the relevant embassy to doube check or better still (for a more informed and impartial answer) the European Commission office in your home country.

Ruth asks…

How much does amsterdam make in tourism annually?

I am working on a project on amsterdam and i would like to know how much they make in tourism annually. also could you put your sources so i can check it myself

Yaz answers:

The best info is always that officially sourced and there is a pdf file with basic tourist stats compiled by Amsterdam’s council – ‘Research and Statistics Economic Development” http://www.os.amsterdam.nl/pdf/2008_factsheets_4a

There is a lot of info there for you to use and so no point me paraphrasing it in an answer here when it is in English and pretty easy to grasp

Hope this helps with your project :0)

Steven asks…

Some information on hotels and drug tourism in Amsterdam?

I am writing my dissertation proposal and I am looking for some research on hotel industry in Amsterdam and a study that connects drug tourism with hotel business again in Amsterdam. If you can direct me to some sites (or paid ones).
Thanks

Yaz answers:

You have a very specific question.
I suggest you call some organisations:

The brancheorganisation for cafes, restaurants and hotels is: http://www.horeca.org/smartsite.dws?id=8 Horeca Nederland. I would call them. The hotel-section is here: http://www.horeca.org/smartsite.dws?id=448

The VVV is the Dutch bureau for tourism. Http://www.amsterdamtourist.nl/nl/visiting/praktischeinformatie/contactatcb They may have some information.

The Chamber of Commerce of Amsterdam can be found here: http://www.evd.nl/zoeken/showbouwsteen.asp?bstnum=48830&location=

The last could be the city council: http://www.amsterdam.nl/

Start with the Horeca Nederland and the Chamber of commerce
