When you are staying inside of the city for a longer period of time, and you would like to see something just outside of the city than that is possible as well. For example there is the Zaanse schans which is located in Zaandam which also has the Inntel Hotel with it’s eccentric look. The Zaanse schans is a perfect place to visit if you are looking for something to do outside of the city of Amsterdam. One of the things you really have to watch when visiting The Zaanse Schans are the typical Dutch windmills. Thereby you also should see some of the musea in and near the Zaanse Schans.
Furthermore we have the beaches “Zandvoort” and “Bloomingdale, which aren’t that far of a drive if you have a rental vehicle at your disposal. But even with the train, which goes every twelve minutes from central station, it is only half an hour away. Both beaches serve a variety of beach clubs and the possibility to rent windsurfing gear.
Next up we have the city’s pride and glory in AFC Ajax football stadium “the Johan Cruijff ArenA”. Located just outside of the city and easy to get by with the subway or by bus, the stadium offers a special tour through the stadium, the locker rooms and the Champions League trophy. You could even visit a game if you are lucky!
