Amsterdam
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+

Excellent Hotel Renaissance Amsterdam in the City center, near trams. Amsterdam is a walking friendly city, although there are some obstacles to wheelchairs. Many trams are wheelchair accessible.
We purchased the Amsterdam Holland card, which saved $ on museums. We never understood until the last day that we were to take our transportation card to the Central Station! Each time we got on a tram and showed it they let us stay, but never did anything with the card. Finally the last day we were told by one attendant that we what we needed to do!

Food was excellent everywhere we went, although higher prices than we are used to in US.

We enjoyed the ambience. However, the city is on hills, many cobblestones, which made it difficult in the wheelchair. We had no luck finding public transportation that was accessible.

We took a cab into town-20 Euros each way.

When we left we could not find a cab. We went to the stop and cab drivers did not know where the cruise ship was docked. The third driver who came knew, and we got back in time.

Beautiful city, well laid out. Trams accessible!
Food good.

Amos museum is a private home that is now a museum with a truly excellent selection of art.

Church of the rock is an architectural wonder.

Emailing the tourist bureau I was told there was accessible transportation. Not so. The trams are from Czechoslovakia, which tells you their age!
We took a cab to Catherine's home that was built by Peter the Great. A nice tour, nice accessible bathroom with an interesting amenity-a shower head and drain for a shower!

There is a lovely park, with a pond that is home to a pair of black swans.

Our cab driver came back at a set time, and took us to the city center of the Old Town. We then worked our way downhill, had lunch, and saw a number of old, interesting buildings. Our daughter bought a T-shirt from the Texas Bar in Tallin.

We were disappointed in this port. We had not realized that it was an hour and half train ride both ways to Stockholm. Nynasham was a quaint port town and we were told that this was the first time HAL had docked there. I could not go ashore, because the steps were too steep to the tender. Husband and daughter went and enjoyed the ONE Hop on Hop Off bus. They also brought back some magnificent pastries.

Sunday in Copenhagen is extremely crowded. There were tour groups everywhere. We did a walking tour and saw many wonderful buildings, a great garden. I would like to visit when it was less crowded and public buildings open.
