Amsterdam ©
Known as one of the greatest small cities in the world, Amsterdam charms visitors with its cool and cozy atmosphere.
Change things up with these side-trips from Amsterdam: Keukenhof (in Lisse), Koornbrug Leiden uit 1642-1825 (in Leiden) and Haarlem (Sint-Bavokerk (Church of St. Bavo), Grote Markt, & more). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Anne Frank House, take a stroll through The Jordaan, explore the world behind art at Museum Het Rembrandthuis (Rembrandt House), and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Heineken Experience.

Plan my Amsterdam trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Cape Town, South Africa to Amsterdam is an approximately 15-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. The time zone difference moving from South Africa Standard Time (SAST) to Central European Time (CET) is minus 1 hour. Traveling from Cape Town in February, things will get colder in Amsterdam: highs are around 7°C and lows about 0°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Wed) to allow time to take a train to Eindhoven.

The capital of Dutch industrial design, Eindhoven is known as the "City of Light." This is thanks to the technology company, Phillips, which has its base here and hosts many light projects in buildings around the city.
Start off your visit on the 20th (Thu): identify plant and animal life at Regte Heide & Riels Laag, then explore the landscape on two wheels at Oisterwijkse Bossen en Vennen, and then have fun at Area 51. On your second day here, get in on the family fun at Efteling and then sample the fine beverages at Bottle Distillery.
