I have been writing this post because I thouhgt that someone here might have been to Amsterdam and could give me some hints as to what to do, what to see or what to avoid there as I have always liked to rely on hints from fellow travellers.

My preferred guide is the Routard (you won't find me without it :P) and if you had any hints for any nice or interesting places such as a particular restaurant, an unusual museum or an excursion that's not to be missed which haven't made it into the Routard (or other tourist guides), I would be really grateful.

Good dreams to everybody!
