windmills and tulips in Amsterdam

Howdy.

We have a night a day in Amsterdam later this week before we catch the newcastle ferry out from Ljmuiden and are looking to find some windmills, tulip fields accessable from safe and clean accomodation close to the main central railway station.

Is there anyone with suggestions?

Thanks in advance..

The tulips fields have all been harvested, so not much to see. The closest and easiest place to see Windmills would be at Zaanse Schans. http://www.zaanseschans.nl/ Easy public transport will get you there -- not too far from Amsterdam.

There are a few windmills in Amsterdam. One is at Brouwerij Het IJ beer brewery in eastern Amsterdam, a 15 minute bus ride from Central Station.

And the spelling of that other place is ijmuiden, not Ljmuiden ;-) You may want to use www.9292.nl/en# to find out travel times from Amsterdam to IJmuiden.
