I have a chance to go to Zaandam for the last week in March, and into April, if I take my daughter. Otherwise I can go alone later, in April or may. I would rather take my daughter, but don't want it to be uncomfortably cold. Any advice?
The weather will not differ much from that at Amsterdam, so take a look at:
It does depend rather a lot on what you are used to: if you live in the tropics you will always feel cold in Holland, if you're from Northern regions you will feel it mild at end of March / April.
The weather in any part of Netherlands can be a lot of different conditions. There are no set patterns. Last year we had snow at Easter!
Normally the weather end of March / beginning of April is rather mild, with temperatures around 15 degrees C. in the daytime.
But it can also be around 10, or 20 degrees C.
As long as you don't intend to spend all your time outdoors, I think you will be fine with your daughter.
Just bring a sweater and a jacket and something for rain. Also prepair for windy conditions.
Have a great trip and stay, hope the weather behaves itself for you.
