Muiderslot

Reviewed By Kathleen G - Calgary, Canada

We were excited about touring Muiderslot, but we were disappointed with our experience. It was misleading that we paid full admission yet were not told that the tour guide would be speaking Dutch 95% of the time. We were given English handouts with sparse information and felt dismissed. Later as we visited the falconry (it in itself was amazing), the same language issue repeated itself. We left the site feeling disappointed - it could have been a wonderful time spent if more of an effort to include English speaking guests had been made. We would not have minded the Dutch tour if we had known beforehand and made an informed decision to purchase admission tickets. This has been our only disappointment during our fabulous time spent in the Netherlands.

Molen de Vriendschap

Very interesting operational windmill with all the old equipment in place. You can buy various flours that the mill makes at the shop on the ground floor.
The city employs a professional miller to operate the mill. However, he comes *only on Saturdays*, so that is the only day it is open! However, you can buy bread made from the mill's flour at Brood- En Banketbakkerij Abbekerk on the Slijkstraat.

One Hour Lockup escape rooms

Your team is locked in a mysterious room. A room with a story. A room with a threat. You've got one hour to escape before terrible things happen... While searching the room, you will find special objects that can be used on your way to freedom. By solving the puzzles and riddles by thinking logically and a good amount of team spirit you can take the next step. While time is ticking away, the room will appear to have lots of hidden secrets. Escape will not be easy...

If possible, could you please remove the part of the 'Dutch style ......', as this might be a spoiler for some people (to already know they will find this).

Spiegelplas en Blijkpolderplas

Walk/ bike route around the water

Reviewed By OceanShark - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

De Spiegel- en Blijkpolderplas is een fantastich stukje natuurgebied. De plas is ontstaan door zandwinning en is zo'n 250ha groot.
Er zijn diverse kleine jachthavens met aanleg of 'boodschappensteigers'.
En het ligt bij Nederhorst den Berg en Ankeveen. Er zijn meerdere wandel-, fiets- of zelfs ruiterpaden.
Voor de duikers; aan de noordkant is er een prima zoetwater duikstek met een maximale diepte van 45 meter met helder water (zicht 2-9 mtr) en dus zeer geschikt om te duiken. Vissoorten: palingen, (Chinese) wolhandkrabben, (snoek)baarzen, karpers, voorntjes, mosselen en zoetwaterkreeftjes. Nachtduiken is aan te bevelen.
Noot: Bij sterke zuidenwind is het zicht minder. En het ijzer in de betonpalen kunnen de wijzer van je duikkompas vreemde kanten op sturen. Parkeren bij het hek vd camping.
Voor de vissers; helaas is het door Natuurmonumenten verboden om in de Spiegel- en Blijkpolderplas te vissen en het gebied valt daarmee niet onder de vispas vergunningen en er word gecontroleerd!
In okt 2017 start Natuurmonumenten met de herstelwerkzaamheden in de Wijde Blik en de Spiegelplas, om deze mooier en veiliger te maken.
Zo komt er o.a. bij het strandje beschoeiing en twee zwemtrappen en bij de eilanden zwemtrappen.
Let op: Op de wegen er naar de plassen toe zijn staan tegenwoordig op meerde plaatsen flitspalen (snelheid maar ook roodlicht camera's). Let dus op je snelheid!

Great spot to have a cold beer if you want to escape the busy Amsterdam crowds of tourists. If the weather is good, sit outside on the Terrace and enjoy the view over the river. It can get quite busy later in the evening as it's very popular among local youngsters.

Anne Frank House

Due to renewal work, until 1 July 2018, all visitors must purchase an online ticket with a time slot in advance. Tickets are made available on the website www.annefrank.org two months in advance. The Anne Frank House is a small museum with limited capacity. The demand for tickets is far greater than the number available, so there may be no tickets available for certain dates. We hope you can find a suitable date and welcome you in the Anne Frank House.

Reviewed By ami306 - West Yorkshire, United Kingdom

This is probably my most recommended thing to do in Amsterdam. The museum is perfectly and respectfully done with enough information for people who have not actually read the diary to engage with it. A moving experience.
(I would also like to add that due problems with transport we were around half an hour late to our allotted time slot but were still allowed inside)

Great information and opportunity to learn about Artist and see world classic art. Listened to guide and learned things we did not know. Sad how troubled he was!
Suggest getting here early. Was not ridiculously mobbed when we arrived but was getting like that when we left. They tell you no pics when there but I must have been the only person in the entire place that listened! Maybe they want to sell the pics and postcards in the gift shops?
