Her Go-Alone Amsterdam...


Baby stuff in Northern Holland...

Heading to the North of Holland? Look out for a "fun" collection of prams and other child-related objects. Housed in an old "Oldambster" farm from 1905 the Perambulator Museum is unique, both in Holland and in Western Europe. The collection is made up of over 350 prams, doll's prams, cradles and bedsteads, all constructed between 1830 and 1970. In addition to the unique collection of prams there's a wide range of christening dresses, baby clothes, clothes for adults and baby articles to be admired. Address: Hoofdweg West 25, 9944 EA Nieuwolda (Groningen), Tel: +31 596 541941.

Cute Dutch men ...

Marlette in Holland writes: In the heart of Amsterdam, just opposite the central train station you will find Vic's Terrace. It is located on the Damrak, on the way to the stock exchange building. On the glassed-in terrace you can watch the delicious "Dutch business suits" (i.e. great looking Dutch men) passing by. And, you have a perfect view of one of the liveliest streets of Amsterdam (while enjoying a 'koffie verkeerd', the best coffee in town).

A Touch of Louisiana...

Jan in Holland writes: Cajun is the name of a very nice Louisiana style restaurant in the middle of the "De Pijp" area in Amsterdam. Always busy and bustling "De Pijp" is close to the well known "Albert Cuyp" market. Their blackened catfish and lovely corn bread is absolutely perfect. Take note that If you're visiting on the weekend, you will definitely need reservations. (Ceintuurbaan 260).


Fancy Fish in Amsterdam...

Jan in Holland writes: Looking for an impressive selection of fish dishes? Then go to Sluizer, a busy and very well known mecca for fish lovers in Amsterdam. The restaurant has an intimate atmosphere, and draws a diverse crowd. It's located close to the Rembrandtplein and is perfect for dinner after a long day of shopping. P.S. This is actually one of two adjoining restaurants of the same name. Go to the one called the "Visrestaurant". Reservation recommended. (Utrechtsestraat)

Not too romantic for solo travellers...

Anne Dimon of Toronto, Canada writes: Don't avoid a dinner cruise just because it sounds too romantic for someone travelling solo. I visited Amsterdam in January and found Holland International's guided evening canal cruise an ideal way to soak in the sites and learn the city's history while enjoying dinner in a glassed-in canal boat. The tour takes you up and down narrow canals; under bridges lit with hundreds of tiny lights; past snug rows of canal houses, the infamous Red Light District and a significant number of historical monuments. The live narration during the tour was informal and very informative. Food was decent, too. Canal cruise boats are lined up outside Central Station just a short walk from Central Dam Square.
