Parking in Rotterdam
You want to park in Rotterdam?
Throughout the center of Rotterdam is paid parking, on any day of the week.
You can park at the Q-Park in Rotterdam.
Rotterdam has many events and attractions and thus attracts many people.
In addition, there are many daily commuters to the port.
Want to good parking in Rotterdam?
Q-Park car parks are conveniently located near the major crowd pullers in shopping areas and in the business center.
You can buy one gram of marijuana for around € 5 / € 7
( like White Widow or Thai )
Hash is slightly more expensive.
Note that you have to be 18+
and you will be asked for your ID before entering any shop.
Buy your weed at a reliable coffee shop, not on the streets.
Besides the fact that it’s illegal to buy cannabis
outside a coffee shop, you’ll probably end up buying weed or hash of bad quality.
You’ll probably get a dry mouth from smoking so get a drink when you’re thirsty.
Don’t smoke on an empty stomach.
When you start to feel bad just stay calm, sit down, and eat something sweet.
You’ll feel better within an hour or so.
Be careful! Cannabis in the Netherlands has a lot of THC, which means it is pretty strong.
Maybe stronger than you are used too...

The two biggest coffee shops in the center of Rotterdam, Nemo and The Reef, must definitely be closed.
That is what the Council of State appeals to by mayor Aboutaleb against the owner of the coffee shops.
In 2015, the police found 142 kilograms of cannabis products on the floor above Nemo's coffee shop at the Nieuwe Binnenweg, a trade volume of six weeks for both coffee shops.
Mayor Aboutaleb accuses the owner of "bad lifestyle behavior".
As a result, this can not be granted an operating license in Rotterdam.

Amsterdam, the capital of Netherlands, is an old and very romantic European city, which captivates the traveler with its old town in the form of semicircle with five canals, great architecture, inspiring choice of art galleries and museums and lovely sites for walking, shopping and relaxation.
Over the Amstel River that runs across the city could be counted approximately four hundred bridges and ninety islands.
With its unique combination of old-world charm and cosmopolitan culture, friendly atmosphere and tolerant attitude of the locals, Amsterdam is one of the most popular European cities for international visitors.
The idyllic combination of historical sites, cultural venues and great entertainment spots, turn Amsterdam into a lively city and contemporary scene, and thus into a tempting tourist destination.
Perfect to be explored on foot, Amsterdam has a superb choice of landmarks. Besides the accommodation options in the old town with its small streets and canals, serviced rental apartments are to be found in the city center near the Oude Kerk, the windmills the De Otter and the Molen van Sloten, the Van Gogh Museum and the Diamond Museum. Nice Amsterdam hotels are also set near the Artis Zoo with the Aquarium and the Planetarium, and next to the Zandvoort beach area. The holiday apartments in Amsterdam are generally located in the old town and the areas of Damark and Rokin, where the Amstel River flows.
These vacation accommodation spots are of different types and capacity to welcome one to several guests. Some of the equipped rental units are more suitable for business travellers as they are set near the airport and the business district, while others are more central and oriented towards the families with kids and other leisure-time holiday-makers. Fully equipped to provide maximum comfort and relaxation, the Amsterdam apartments for rent have reasonable prices as well.
Al party starts at midnight, dress warmly, especially good shoes, if you want to walk that night. Beware, there are a lot of people, especially on Dam Square, rather prefer the Jordaan neighborhood and such as De Pijp for the wonderful and unforgettable experience ride.

Coffeeshop Central / Prins Hendrikkade 89 ( A on the map ) is closest Airport Schiphol ( 15 mn by train ).
Open 7am until 8pm daily. Most shops open closer to 10am so this is unusual and it’s no doubt partly due to the layover phenomenon and the fact that it’s the closest place to the train station as well. Many of these layover flights land in Amsterdam around 6am or 7am, so this place is open to meet your early morning weed-smoking needs.
Directly opposite the eastern end of Centraal Station (where the night buses go from).

Amsterdam Centraal is the central railway station of Amsterdam. It is also one of the main railway hubs of the Netherlands and is used by 250,000 passengers a day, excluding transferring passengers. It is the starting point of Amsterdam Metro lines 51, 53 and 54.
Direct trains to Amsterdam Centraal Station run every 10 to 15 minutes between about 6 and 12:30 a.m. (every hour during other times). The trip takes about 15 to 20 minutes. Buy tickets either at the ticket desk on the arrivals level or at the yellow machines (with euro coins or with a debit card that uses a “PIN” code). Trains leave from platforms 1, 2 or 3, one floor below.
The OV-chipcard is an electronic form of payment for travel on all public transport vehicles, which since June 1, 2010 has been introduced as an exclusive ticket form in Amsterdam. A credit card size OV-chpicard carries a memory chip, which registers your credit and deducts the cost of each journey from it.
Chip-in and chip-out
Entering the tram, train or a bus you have to flash your card in front of the special sensor placed inside the vehicle at the door (so called chipping-in), leaving you flash it again (chipping-out) and the cost of your journey is deducted automatically from your card.
If you forget to chip-out the card exiting the vehicle, the system will assume that you continued your journey and will charge you the maximum charge of € 4,00 The OV-chipcards system
Amsterdam residents use personal OV-chipcards. For a visitor an anonymous OV-chipcard, which can be purchased in many supermarkets, press shops and GVB offices, is a better choice. It costs € 7,50 and it is valid for 5 years, but it carries no credit. To travel you have to download the credit at special machines located at the stations and at the entry of many supermarkets. Tourist best choice
If you are in Amsterdam only for a visit, more simple and more economical are 24-, 48-, 72-, 96-, 120-, 144- and 168- hour OV-chipcards, which allow for unlimited travel on all trams, buses, metros and night buses for the duration of the card.
One very economical option for visitors on a day trip to Amsterdam is the All Amsterdam Transport Pass. This works as a 24-hour pass for all GVB transport such as trams, buses and the metro as well as being a one day ticket for the city’s popular canal bus and granting discounts to popular attractions and restaurants.
You may buy All-in One Travel Tickets upon your arrival on Schiphol Airport.

‘De Walletjes’ is desirable by everyone who visits Amsterdam. It’s not only for the great variation of girls who are working here but also for the nice and cozy area with his restaurants, bars, sexshops, sexshow / clubs and the coffeeshops.
It’s a safe place to be. Just use your common sense and walk here or visit one of the bars, restaurants, clubs or girls! At ‘The Main Area’ (de Walletjes) are hundreds of windows, it’s the main sex-attraction of the city centre these days
Hundreds of people are walking and peeking here every day, evening or night throughout this area. It’s a nice, safe & great place to walk around.
Don´t take pictures of the girls in the windows, they really don´t like that! Just walk around, hop into the sexshops, see a show in a sextheatre, visit a peeshow, proof your luck in a gamblinghall, have a drink at one of the bars or use one of the attractions in the windows.
The other RLD-area in the city-centre is located around the Spuistraat/Singel, it’s at the other side of the shoppingstreet ‘Nieuwendijk’.
It’s called Singel-district’ with the Oude Nieuwstraat, Spuistraat, Singel, Korte Korsjespoortsteeg, Korsjespoortsteeg, Bergstraat, Teerketelsteeg & Korte Kolksteeg
There are about 55 windows filled with girls, women & several transsexuals. It’s not a real tourists-area but more for locals who are looking for sexual entertainment. But you’re welcome to take a look or entertain yourself here Bars, coffeeshops, sexmovie-theaters, restaurants and dailys are here plenty to find.
The third Red Light District is located at another part of Amsterdam

Romantic getaway or business travel, shopping weekend, Amsterdam is the city for you.
Rent an apartment in Amsterdam is the best compromise for a perfect stay in this wonderful city. No matter your budget, you will always find an accommodation to your liking which would be cheaper than the hotel. In addition, if you are smoker, many apartments have a balcony and the windows can be open.
Some hotels have windows which cannot be open and some hotel owners are quick to you stick a fine (up to 250 €) if you smoke, and no matter what you smoke! But this is only a few hotels linked to major brands.
