At Muiden is the magnificent Muiderslot Castle, as if it stepped out of a fairy tale. A small genuine castle easily seen in a 2 hour visit, perfect for children. Several hands on interactive exhibits including costume pieces to try on, lift a sword, try on a helmet. Several children arrived in their own costumes too. There is a falconer with a demonstration and information on falcons. The staff at the hotel reports it is a popular Dutch school trip destination. There is another educational building and a small garden as well. worth the trip. There is a guided tour ( not great if English is your language though, they hand you a card to read.) and you can roam around on your own.The ferry ride is great, the ferry staff informative and personable and they really add to the experience. Beer and coffee available on the ferry which can be picked up at the marina at the last stop Amsterdam IJburg. Just fyi, there are no signs for the marina, we had to ask in the market.With tram 26 from Amsterdam Central Station you’ll be at the Amsterdam tourist ferry in only 15 minutes.
Not a trip for the physically challenged, lots of steps, narrow passages, cobble stone courtyard
