We are heading off on Saturday for three days. Any ideas on where to go and where to give a miss? We're staying near Vondel Park. Thanks

Take a boat trip. NEMO (science museum for kids). Bear in mind a lot of museums are closed on Mondays. Check out Amsterdam Mamas on fb or on their website for activities.

Definitely a boat trip and a wander round the canals either on foot or cycling - try and hire a bike.

I haven't been yet but my Dutch colleagues are always raving about it.

Go for pancakes. I like this place and nearly always go there when in Amsterdam for work. It's just down from Anne Frank's house:
