I suggest you get a guidebook and read up. That way you can also see what appeals to you (because we can only guess, with such little information).

Or do a Google search for 'daytrips from Amsterdam', I am sure that comes up with tonnes of suggestions and you will see a lot of the same suggestions in all those websites.

Then if you have more specific questions, post them here.

One of my favorite easy day trips is to the Muiderslot Castle in Muiden, a lovely village. Easy to take the # 52 bus (I Think...) from ADam to and from. In December, the Floris V Restaurant on the main intersection by the bridge should have its lovely massive fireplace going. Good food as well, walk along the river to see the older homes and boats down to the Castle and Gardens. Check the website as sometimes the castle is closed when there is a private wedding party.

My next favorites are train trips to Haarlem, Delft and Den Haig, and seaside Maarken. Sorry if my details are off.

Cheers!

Sunny

With the mention of Schengen visa's I am thinking the OP may be looking for trips outside of the Netherlands ( I may be mistaken, I usually am); If this is the case, Belguim is your best option, maybe Antwerp as it is nearest, or Brussels - not a popular place on this forum, but I like it; If you can overnight, take a look at Brugge or Ghent - they are really pretty old village like towns, brugge has canals and Ghent a castle.

Have a good trip.

"the OP may be looking for trips outside of the Netherlands"

Cologne could be another option. You could take a day cruise on the Rhine.

These will be in the order I recommend them:

All in one day - Edam, Volendam, and Marken

Haarlem

Utrecht

Leiden and The Hague

Zaanse Schans or Kinderdijk

Antwerp

Remember that it will be getting dark early - don't be getting too ambitious.
