Climb De Kat
When in Amsterdam
, the best place to view windmills is a 15 minute train ride away in Zaanse Schans. While you're there take a few minutes and visit De Kat. The windmill used to mill paint but now is open to visitors. It might take all of your courage to climb the flights of stairs to the top, but once you're back down reward yourself with a cup of hot cocoa and a Dutch biscuit.
