We take the flight at 11h00 and we arrive in Eindhoven at 13h00.
We take the bus from the airport to the train station. There we buy something to eat, you can choice: burguer, sadwichs, sushi, frankfurt... If you buy there the ticket to Amsterdam, you must ask about the direct ticket, if not, you must changue the train during the travel.
We take it at 14h02 and we arrive in Amsterdam at 15h15; during the travel we see all the landscape snow-covered, for me it's the most wonderfull of the travel, I live in Sevilla where every day is sunny.
When we arrive in Amsterdam, we buy the IAMSTERDAM CARD, first here in Spain, we find the monuments prices, every museum arround 14€, and we take the card for 48 hours; with this card you have free entrance in few monuments like the Nieuwekerk, the Oudekerk, the Van Gongh Museum, the Rijksmuseum.
Then we take the 25 tram to go to the Hotel. Our Hotel is the Bycicle Hotel. When we arrive the girl who stay in the reception was very kind with us, she offer us a cup of coffe.
Our room stay in the fourth floor, without elevator, for us, that's ok, but the stairs are unbelievable, it's better to see it, but these stairs are the same in every Amsterdam houses.
It's 17h00 we take the umbrella because the day is cloudy and we go to the Heineken Experience; the price with the discount is 11€, inside, you see how making the heineken beer and taste it. When the visit finish, you can take two beers in the international bar.
Them we walk for the Vijzelgracht to the Munttoren and then for the Rokin there's a channel, we find a chinesse buffet for 8'50€ and we dinner there, but the buffet is not so big, and the meals are a little heavy, them we continue just the Dam.
There we find the National monument, the Koninklijk Paleis and the Nieuwekerk and starting the Rosse Buurt.
The Rosse Buurt is full of the typical Amsterdam brothels and the coffeshops.
And we retourn to the Hotel in the 25 tram. We are very tied. The reception close at 23h00, but with the room key they give us a code to open the main door.
