Enjoyed a chilled out day at the zoo, was plenty of attractions to view and easy to get to with public transport. I also enjoyed visiting local bar for food which was cheaper than the other places I visited which were more central

visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
