City tours, excursions and tickets in Alkmaar and surroundings
Netherlands - moving around the country
To travel around the city and the suburbs, tourists are recommended to choose buses, trams, and trolleybuses. Almost all cities have night transport. Absolutely all cities are divided into certain transport zones, and this should be taken into account when buying a ticket. It is much more profitable to buy reusable tickets that offer unlimited number of rides within the prepaid travel zone. Travelers can buy a ticket at any kiosk or directly from the driver. In Amsterdam, 4 lines of the subway and several ferry lines are available in addition to the above mentioned public transport. Water transport is no longer focused on transportation, but on tours, so the cost of tickets is much higher.
Overview of festivals and celebrations in Netherlands
Every year on November 20-24, there is a traditional cannabis festival in Amsterdam. During the festival, coffeeshops compete in different categories. They reveal the best varieties of marijuana, hashish, the best beer or cupcakes based on marijuana. The quality is accessed by judges. Anyone can be a judge for just 200 euros. Jury members personally taste all the proposed options and, based on personal feelings, endure the verdict. Common visitors can taste different food or drinks with cannabis, buy clothes made of hemp, as well as aromatic oils or accessories for smoking.
