The man/women in the reception, give us some bread: white or brown.
When we finish, we run to the AnneFrankhuis, we have tickets bought by internet, because everyone who go to Amsterdam, visit the AnneFrankhuis and you could find a big queue. The regular tickets have a price of 8'50€, by internet you pay 9€. How we have the tickets we come in for another door at 09h30 (our booking time).
Finish the house, we take the same street Prinsengracht to see the Tulip Museum, the Norderkerk and the streets arround, knowed like the 9 streets with beautiful typical houses.
Just one thing, we go into the Tulip Museum because is free with the IAMSTERDAMCARD, it's a tulip shop and in the bassement we find the little museum, where he tell us about the tulip history.
We return by the same street to see the Westerkerk but we don't find the entrance, then we have a funny moment, because we don't find the Hommomonument, it's behind the Westerkerk in the Keizersgracht, next to the bridge, in the floor.
We continue walking just the leindsplein a place full of restaurants with a lot of activity.
Next to the Leindsplein we find the Vondelpark, it's a beautiful park, all snow-covered. We continue to the Van Gongh museum, first we buy a hot drink, because the weather is so cold for us. We have free entrance in the Van Gogh Museum. I like the Van Gogh works, and here, you can find the majority.
First to come into the Rijksmuseum we take several photos in the I AMSTERDAM, but it's easy take the photos, maybe in the lunch time...
In the Rijksmuseum we can find a lot of works, severals of Rembrand.
The best of every museum is the free cloakroom, maybe in summer it's not necesary, but in the winter...
Finish the museums for today we go to the Bloemenmark, it's full of Tulips and Roses, and it's January!! The prices... 20 roses for 2'5€, it's unthinkable in Spain, here one rose in winter around 4 or 5€.
Then we retour to the prinsengracht next to the AnneFrankHuis, there is the best place for eating pancake in the "Pancake Bakery". The IAMSTERDAMCARD guide sais you have a 25% discount but only in the international pancake. Me, I prefer a cherries pancake and a hot chocolat, just 10€.
We are very tired, we stop nearby to the hotel in a supermarket, and we buy some cheese and wine to dinner.
