Open air plays. Each year a different play during summer season. First go and have a picknick on the waterfront in the biggest park of Amsterdam, then settle in win time for the crowds and only then you can enjoy the show. The ritual is rewarding in itself. The plays are in Dutch only!

Enough screens to provide something for everyone. All movies are subtitled (just like TV in NL) so if you speak English you are mostly fine, except for the odd French or Italian art-house movie. Plenty of restaurants and shops around and a train station as well.

Sightseeing

One of many old forts in the surroundings. With some imagination you get to understand what happened here and how Amsterdam defended itself against foreign intruders. Fort Spion (Fortress Spy) in Loosdrecht is another one.

If you're a tourist you will probably feel you can't leave NL without having seen "De Wallen" which is the local name for 'the red light district'. Even though there is lots to say about whether the phenomenon is a good or bad thing from a humane point of view, it is one of the many symbols for the liberal culture of Amsterdam.
