Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction

Quote:
How to get there?From Amsterdam Central Station you walk straight ahead (Damrak), which then turns into Rokin. On your right you will see at some point the Amsterdam Dungeon. This is about 10 to 15 minutes. Who does not like to walk can also take the tram from the station. Trams 4, 9, 16, 24 & 25 stop at "Spui" or "Rokin."PricesTicket prices are quite high, but through internet you can always buy cheaper tickets.

Attraction | "Forteiland Pampus"

Quote:
First a brief explanation of what actually Pampus is. This is an artificially made island fortress in the lake and is located 3 km off the coast of Muiden and 3.5 km off the coast of IJburg / Amsterdam.It is a very fortress island with a long history. The island is also on the UNESCO list. It is part of the "Stelling van Amsterdam."The fortress island is open to the public and you can moor your own boat during the opening of the ferry sailing from Muiden. There is only one house on the island, which is the fortress guards. There is also a reception room and of course the fort.

Artis Zoo

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "A depressing Zoo"

Quote:
The location of Artis is striking. Just in a residential area is the entrance to the zoo. Artis zoo is really a city, accessible to residents and tourists from the capital.ParkingParking is super easy. So if you want to visit zoo, you do not have to worry about parking, as you would normally have to do when you go to Amsterdam. Next to the park is in fact a special parking reserved for visitors - I think - less than 10 euro’s cost for a zoo day. For Amsterdam standards is no money.The ParkEntryYears ago I've been here ever so when I arrived, I compared it with the past, the fragments of memories left in my memory has been cleared. There is almost n...Read More

The restaurant has a wonderful location near the main Dam square in Amsterdam. It’s an upscale dining restaurant with among a great bar, outdoor dining when the weather allows it and a sushi area in the middle of the restaurant. On the menu there is a lot of choices including meat, fish, vegetarian and of course sushi dishes. It’s something you would expect in a city as Amsterdam.When we arrived at the restaurant we were both in the mood to try something new and we asked the waiter what was the specialty of the restaurant. The waiter advised us fried oyster and since we both never eaten any we were quiet curious. Also the salad with watermelon sounded too good to pass up.I was ...Read More
