Keukenhoff! How did that get into the equation. The OP was asking about Amsterdam, and Keukenhoff is quite a distance from the city (I think its probably closer to Haarlem). But since you mentioned the place, I would add that it is truly one of the most amazing gardens/park on earth. The problem is that there is only a small window (perhaps a month) when the tulips are in their full glory (part of April and May). You can get to Keukenhoff from Amsterdam quite cheaply by using a combination train/bus...or you can get a tour bus direct from Amsterdam.
