I have an 8 hour layover is Amsterdam on July 21st and want someone fun to spend the day with....

I land at 9:30am in Amsterdam and my fight back is at 5:40pm

Anyone who will be there and wants to spend a couple of hours let me know :)

If you want to pop into town. Do check train times back or it's a taxi if you miss it.

Hey,
myself and my boyfriend are in the same situation. But we will be there in August, any reccommendations on what to do in Amsterdam in a day would be great :)

Again, bad information Cyberia. There are trains like every 10-15 minutes or so and checking it is best on the english version of the Dutch Railway website.

Hi, well, Schiphol is not a bad place for a layover. It's 20 mns by train to Central Station. More tips on -snip- I would reccommend one of the great museums...Anne Frank, Van Gogh, Rijksmuseum. Or surprise your boyfriend with a romantic canalcruise ;)

Good luck, make the most of it!
