Unusual Destinations in Europe:

Interrail from Madrid, via Barcelona and Amsterdam to Copenaghen


Amsterdam is a really cool city. There are something to be aware of so I will discuss that and give you some great things to see and enjoy. Amsterdam isn't terribly expensive, so you'll be okay with your budget. Amsterdam is not a hard city to walk around in, so keep that in mind, from your location you are probably no more than 15 minutes walking to ANY of the places I'm going to mention. Schiphol airport can be a madhouse at times. I would prep early to arrive.

General safety - Just be careful. There are a lot of temptations to experience, so do what you want and of course have fun. Most of the dangers are no different from any other big city in the world, but just be smart and you'll be perfectly fine. You mentioned smoking, so I wanted to give you a few tips about some things of that nature.
Drugs - Marijuana is legal, but you cannot smoke in public or on trains. You can smoke legally in "coffee shops" which will sell you legal and good weed. Shrooms although are not legal, are tolerated. Hard Drugs are NOT tolerated anywhere. People will offer to sell you them, do not buy, it is a scam and you can be in danger. Just say no thank you or ignore them politely and that is all, don't get into a conversation, just be polite.
Red Light District - Use your imagination here. DO NOT TAKE PICTURES AT ALL. Seriously DO NOT. You'll regret it. In this area there are a lot of police around on foot, bikes, cars, so you will be very safe.
Bikes - Do not walk in the bike path, you will get hit and it will be your fault. Walk in the walking area. There will be more bikes than people. Do not buy bikes from people on the street, it is illegal and you will get fined. Bikes have a right of way to go before people AND cars. Remember this.

Botanical Gardens - I've been here several times. The botanical gardens (aka Hortus Botanicus) are just a beautiful collection of flowers and plants from Netherlands and around Europe. It is very misty inside and is very pleasant and not always busy. Tickets are €7
Rembrandt Hauis - This was my favorite museum in Amsterdam and one of my favorite I've seen. Here is Rembrandts actual study while he lived in Amsterdam. The cool thing is they let you take pictures inside of the place which is very rare. It is a small loft and not far away on foot. There is an exhibit there right now! When I went it was free, but they ask for a donation. I haven't see a price for it.
