While there is plenty to see in laidback Amsterdam, from world-class museums to vintage markets and scenic canals, the city is only one slice of the Netherlands. Here’s what you need to know about taking a day trip from the Dutch capital city.

Dutch Countryside — 14 miles (22 km) from Amsterdam
Historic windmills, charming fishing villages, picturesque canals, and cheese tastings are just some of what you can expect on a day trip into the Dutch countryside. The working windmill village of Zaanse Schans, the small fishing village of Volendam, and the famous cheese-producing town of Edam are all easily accessible via guided tours, which take care of transportation and offer insight into the area.

Keukenhof Gardens — 22 miles (36 km) from Amsterdam
If visiting Amsterdam in spring, a day trip to Keukenhof Gardens is a must. The site is only open briefly during the season, during which a psychedelic carpet of color blooms from the gardens’ 7 million flowers. Pre-booking a tour with roundtrip transportation allows travelers to avoid the hassle of arranging a rental car or taking a bus from Schiphol Airport Plaza.

Delft & The Hague — 39 miles (63 km) from Amsterdam
Venture from Amsterdam on a day trip to Delft to visit the Delftse Pauw factory, where the world-famous blue-and-white pottery is made, or to The Hague to see top sights such as the Peace Palace and Houses of Parliament. Many guided tours combine visits to Delft and The Hague with other area attractions for a full day out.

Bruges, Belgium — 170 miles (273 km) from Amsterdam
Book a full-day tour from Amsterdam to Bruges to touch on all of the Belgian city’s highlights, including ancient churches, a smattering of museums, and the palaces that loom over the canals. Once in the city, boat tours are a great way to explore the waterways, and there are plenty of restaurants at which to enjoy mussels and wash them down with Belgian beer. With included transport from Amsterdam, be prepared for a long day.
