Living in Germany but never traveled to our neighbors the Netherlands?
How is that even possible..?
Until January 2017 this was the fact for me so I decided to finally go and visit this country famous for its liberal and open minded people.
My first stop in the Netherlands was the city of Amsterdam, where I spend about a week, which definitly was not enough, but since it is not the cheapest city for travellers on a low budget, it was fine 😉
Just to give you an idea of the avarage cost per day spent there:
Dorm bed: 15€ +
Breakfast: 5€ (super market); 10€ (at restaurant e.g. English Breakfast)
Lunch or Dinner: from 8€ (affordable restaurant)
Museums: e.g Rijksmuseum entry: 17€ (Discounts for students possible)
Ferry to the other side of the town: 0€ 🙂
Ticket for the tram or bus: about 3€ (one way ticket)
-> better use the OV-Chipcard (about 0,90€ per km)
There are free city walking tours offered at every hostel! 🙂
Here are some impressions of my short trip to Amserdam. Enjoy!
