TTR063 Out & About Amsterdam
  Zoom

Amsterdam- capital city of the Netherlands is home to more than half a million people.  Getting there is easy! You can travel by rail from the UK through the Channel Tunnel, from Germany in an ICE3 along the NBS from Frankfurt, or from Berlin through Bad Bentheim.  Most visitors from the UK will arrive by air, we show you Schiphol and how to get down town. We guide you through the public transport systems: trams, ferries and canal boats, and visit the GVB offices at Central Station-the best place to buy your tickets.   The old city has been built on a pattern of concentric semi circles, the houses standing on piles through to the firm sands below.  The city is cut by canals,  which are crossed by more than 200 bridges giving the city its special character.  We show you some principal sights: the Museum Quarter, the Heineken Experience,  then onto  NEMO ? the technology centre.  We take some day trips: by rail to Hoorn - perhaps the prettiest town in the country - to make the classic triangular run: steam tram across the marshes to Medemblik,  transfer to the MV Friesland for an hour's sail across the Ijsselmeer to Enkhuizen, and back by train to Hoorn and Amsterdam, to the  National Railway Museum at Utrecht,  Den Haag by train - now for many the classic architecture of Den Haag HS station would suffice,  but we move on to Madurodam - Holland in miniature. It's a tram ride of twenty minutes, and after our visit to the miniature wonderland,  five minutes more to the seaside at Scheveningen, where you can take the air and lose your money at the casino!  The return trip is along the interurban tramway to Delft where we watch genuine Delftware being made and painted. We return home via the world famous bulb fields near Haarlem. Narrated RT 103 mins.  Published November 2005
