John asks…

List of free/lost cost tourist attractions in Amsterdam?

What are some fun things to do there that are preferably free or low cost. My budget allows for one or two activities a day such as museums and I would like to do as much free stuff as possible.

Are there any free guided tours or where it’s tip/donation only or anything like that? Also, where are places I can go that I can spend several hours at to kill a portion of the day without having to spend any cash?

Yaz answers:

Walking in Amsterdam can be fun, specially when the weather is nice.
If you want a day you do not spend much, take a bus or train out into one of the smaller towns in the area and sight see there, it is different and likely cheaper. You could do it by bus tour too, but that will cost you much more and local trains and buses are good.

On one of your first days in Amsterdam, walk into the tourist information office and ask them what is available in walking tours, they often have a good selection that are almost free.

This site also has a lot of information: http://www.amsterdam.info/
See the list of museums, check each of the museums you like, many have a lower entry price that you would expect, some are even for free.

Even better to find free things in Amsterdam is this site:

In the almost free category, riding a bike should score high.
Decide whether you want to stay in the city or go out in the countryside, both are good to do and can be great fun.
This site has a lot of photos of cycling in Amsterdam and also some in the area:

I am not sure whether this is a direct link, but here I have seen his flickr albums, full up with cycling photos:

Chris asks…

What are the top tourist attractions at the following places in Holland: Amsterdam and Rotterdam?

Yaz answers:

I have been to Amsterdam twice. Must-see tourist destinations include:

Anne Frank’s House

The Van Gogh Museum, and

The Dam (which is the city’s central square and home to the Royal Palace)

For a full list of things to do in Amsterdam, I found this website for you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tourist_attractions_in_Amsterdam

The above mentioned, however, you absolutely must see while in Amsterdam — especially Anne Frank’s House, which just received even more materials from her past and time spent under SS occupation.

Go the Flower Market; you´ll see the endless varieties of flowers!!
Go for a tour through the canals.
Rent a bike and cyple around the city, it´s not very big and there´s a wonderful bike lane.
Visit one of the Diamond Factories, amazing!
Munt Plein (Munt Square), there´s a beautiful tower there.
Rembrandt Plein (Rembrandt Square); there´s a wonderful representation in metal of The Night Watch; at night is just wonderful.
Go along Kalverstraat, a long, pedestrian shopping street.
Visit this site:

I found it really useful and try its webcam. I did so before going and found out the name of one of the shops there; then once there, I used to stand at a fixed time for a couple of minutes so that my children could see me from home!!
Visit the Churches; I loved Oude Kirke (Old Church); West Church seemed to be beautiful in the outside, but it was closed when I was there. Check this site for churches:
http://www.amsterdam.world-guides.com/ch…
Vondelpark: it´s so beautiful! Go for a walk there.

Mark asks…

Is a trip to amsterdam worth 2000 dollars for one person? It isn’t even warm?

A trip to jamaica or mexico is like half of a trip to amsterdam.. What is the tourist attraction to amsterdam? Why should i go there instead of mexico or jamaica?

Other than hookers, that one is obvious.. But there must be cheaper places to get hookers.. Why do peole go to amsterdam?

Yaz answers:

Because some people are interested in history and culture. If you’re not then go and bake in the Caribbean.
