I will have my first and maybe only trip to Amsterdam for business with most of this coming Friday free. I will be staying near the airport. Any suggestions for a must-see on a limited time schedule and budget?

Take one of the canal tours with a guide if you want to see everything quickly.  You can get a train from the Airport to the Centre.

Enjoy. I love Amsterdam!  My best friend used to live there so I got to see the place as a local. :)

I actually had to think about that for a minute, but no, I don’t think so.

Thanks Lee. Can the tours run during the cold weather?

Boats go all-week during the day. Go to Central Station and catch a boat in front of the station. There is also a hop-on-hop-off version, you could walk back over the canals. (Tad cold now)

Maybe a coffeeshop visit, then 😉

Anyone wish to join me for a coffee (or stronger drink) in Amsterdam this Friday?

Coffeeshops are not for drinks but for smoking :p

I normally would've said yes but as I am in the middle of remodelling my new place I can't unfortunately. I would suggest to get a map and just wonder with in the canal rings south of central station, there is tons to see and a canal tour is a terrific way to do it somewhat quickly. 

The redlight district is almost more of a tourist destination now though, it's probably not what you think when you imagine it. Also a real pretty area is near the Rijksmuseum, you don't have to go in as it's huuuuge but there is a nice square in front, pretty buildings and a B&O shop close by :p

Walking around Enschede just today, I realized “coffeeshops” are a bit different here Big Smile, and not the same as coffee shops. Not in Kansas anymore. So much to learn. Thanks all for your help.

Maybe the “coffee houses” are where B&Os software developers hold their offsite design reviews...

I'm afraid I'm recovering from the BeoVirus. Sad
