We fancied a Sunday day out on our bikes and wanted to learn more about Amsterdam and its history so we decided to cycle out to Muiden and incorporate a ferry ride out to Pampus Island. We arrived on the island during a local event...More

Visited as part of a tour group and there are no words for how wonderful the experience was. Perhaps it is the relaxing and calm feeling that is present throughout the Netherlands is what made the attraction enjoyable. I would never imagine that I would...More

Chances are you might find yourself in Amsterdam and have already done all the tourist highlights in the city and have some time to spare. Or, you don’t want to do the typical touristy things. If you also love history and maybe have young kids,...More

Great dinner experience with friends the other nite. Was a windy, wet but adventurous nite of exploring, eating, drinking and laughing. Can't wait to do this during the summer time.

This is a , never used, fort of the defense fortifications of Amsterdam. It is completely surrounded by water and 'veerdienst amsterdam' brings you there in one hour by boat from the harbour of IJburg (a part of Amsterdam), really very good service.

Pampus is an interesting place. Worth a day trip from Amsterdam/Utrecht may be in combination with Muidenslot (castle in Muiden). Best thing is to reserve in advance the ferry to secure a spot. The ferry takes about 15 min to get to the forth with...More

Many forts can be visited in the Netherlands, and most of them look quite similar. This one is unique in being situated on an island, strategically located in the IJsselmeer near Amsterdam. That alone makes it worthwhile to visit, in combination with the Muiderslot where...More
