When you need a travel plan for your Dutch visa

People might want to visit The Netherlands but not have an idea what more there is to see apart from Amsterdam. But to apply successfully for a visa you need to show a travel plan. Some one asks me to write one. I hope you like this one as well.

Day 1

The Airport:
At Schiphol Airport you can take a train to almost everywhere in The Netherlands. Only in very rural areas the public transportsystem can be a pain. Hiring a car is not necessary and parking can be very expensive in the cities.

So walk to the railwaystation in the basement after you bought a ticket in the airport hall.

Day 1-3


Amsterdam: as really Dutch as Disneyland in a way but a must see anyway
Have a look at the Red Light District if you want and avoid people offering to sell you drugs. Be aware of pickpockers. Did I scare you?

What I can recommend you is to do a canal cruise because it is one of the best ways to see the beauty of the city and the guide will explain things to you. Click here

What is also very interesting to see are the museums like the Rijksmuseum where you can see the most famous Dutch painting The Nachtwacht, the Van Gogh museum with loads of painting from that famous Dutch painter or the Scheepvaartmuseum that has it's own East India ship you can visit. A lot of tourists also visit the House of Anne Frank a Jewish girl who died in a concentration camp and got famous because of her diary.



Amigo Budget Hostel will only cost you around 30 euro for two nights when you share a room with other backpackers. Click here











Or a more expensive one like this one that will cost you 150 euro for 2 nights in your private room.









 DAY 3 -5: To Texel

In the morning of your third day you will go and explore rural The Netherlands and take a train to the harbour of Den Helder. The trip will take over 2 hours and you need to be on a ferry so best leave before 11.00 am. If you are up real early you might want to make a stop at Alkmaar one of the stations of the intercity to Den Helder. It is a nice old town famous for its cheesemarket.
In Den Helder you take a bus to the ferry terminal and buy a ticket to Texel.

Texel is an island and very rural. Many Dutch and German people go there for the summerholiday when it is expensive.  You might want to rent a bicycle to go and explore the island and the small villages on it.

This hotel for instance is in november only 88 euro for 2 nights for a good private room.

So go walk the beach and try the local drinks and food. And enjoy the quiet.







DAY 5: Delft (and day 6,7)

Delft is a university town between The Hague and Rotterdam so a good place to go exploring

In the morning you take a train from Den Helder to Delft and spend what is left of the day exploring Delft itself. Have your dinner in one of the restaurants. As you can see it is like Amsterdam with old buildings and canals but without the tourist but with many students. Did you know that they bury our royalty in the New Church here?

Here you can book a hostel with a shared room as well and that will cost you only 44 euro for 2 nights.  Click here.









Or for a bit more luxe you spend more and book this one











 Day 6: The Hague

You leave your luggage in the hotel and take the train to The Hague what will be around 10 minutes. The Hague is not the capital but the seat of parliament and also the King has his two palaces here. I would really recommend to go and visit the Binnenhof, the medieval buildings that now house parliament and our government.
What is also a great place to visit is Madurodam what is a miniature city  that depicts The Netherland's most famous landmarks,
When you take the tram to Scheveningen you arrive in the beachresort and can eat fresh fish and walk the seashore with all its shops.
The Hague is a great place to shop. If you like to see a bit of its migrant culture go to the Haagse Markt, an outdoor market that is open several days a week.

In the evening return with the train to Delft. Be aware to make sure when the last train will leave.

Day 7: Rotterdam

Rotterdam is a 15 minutes trainride from Delft. It was bombed during the Second World war and very modern. It is a very multi-ethnic city and home of many museums. You can shop till you drop at the "koopgoot" (the Lijnbaan officially) or go and see the Markthal. What is also fun is to take a harbour cruise with Spido Cruises. There are many hotels from cheap till very posh.

Day 8: To Valkenburg (8-10)

This will mean you will be many hours in the train and all the way to the deep south. Culture is a bit different here. There the landscape will be a bit hilly. Valkenburg is a small village that is very touristic with a ruined castle. You will be knackered of the long trainride when you arrive so you probably will just walk a bout a bit and enjoy your dinner.

Day 9 you can spend exploring locally and have a walk in the hilly landscape.
You might also like to take the train and have a look at Maastricht or even German Aachen/Aken. Here also applies: be aware of the last train leaving.

Day 10: Back to Schiphol
Do not book an early flight as it will take you hours and hours to get there and the trains are not running during the night.

Alternative day 8-10: Arnhem

Arnhem is in the east of the country and almost in Germany. You can use your stay there to travel to some museum like the World War Two museum in Overloon: More info here

Or what is also fun is the Dutch Open Air museum. It is the most visited museum outside of Amsterdam and gives a good impression of Dutch life in the past. Been there liked it a lot. Have a look
It takes a day to explore it.







BE AWARE THAT TO APPLY SUCCESFULLY FOR A TOURIST VISA THEY EXPECT YOU TO HAVE RESERVED TICKETS FOR HOTELS. YOU ALSO NEED TO BE ABLE TO TELL WHAT YOU WANT TO VISIT AND EXPLORE. SO READ YOUR LONELY PLANET FIRST.

EXPLAIN WHERE YOU HAVE BEEN PRIOR TO VISITING THE NETHERLANDS. ADD COPIES OF THOSE VISA AND IF YOU HAVE A STILL VALID VISA MENTION THAT AS WELL.

THE NETHERLANDS ALSO WANTS TO BE SURE YOU WILL LEAVE WHEN YOUR VISA IS ABOUT TO EXPIRE SO MENTION WHAT IT IS YOU ARE LEAVING BEHIND: JOBS, PROPERTIES, FAMILY ETC.

BE AWARE YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO PAY YOUR OWN HOLIDAY SO YOU NEED TO SHOW YOU HAVE AT LEAST 35 EURO POCKETMONEY FOR EACH DAY YOU WILL VISIT.

A SCHENGENVISA IS VALID FOR THE WHOLE SCHENGENAREA BUT IF YOU APPLY AT THE DUTCH EMBASSY MOST DAYS HAVE TO BE IN HOLLAND
