Your cell service will work in Stavoren if your carrier has international plans and you have arranged to use them. If not, or because it may be a less expensive alternative, it is easy to buy a Sim card at the airport or in Stavoren to use while you are in the Netherlands.

While in the Netherlands

Consider staying a day or two in Amsterdam on your way to Stavoren or on your return. Among other things, Amsterdam has some of the finest museums in the world, including the Rijksmuseum and the nearby Van Gogh Museum.

If you have more time, the European train and airplane transportation system from the Amsterdam hub is easy to use and can take you to the European cities and resorts of your choice.
