In September, we could enjoy a nice warm late summer, remember? Picnics in the park, drinking wine on the terrace and just walk along the canals. Indian Summer in Amsterdam! Did you go to the 6 most popular hotspots of September?
These were the most popular hotspots of September 2014:
Halte 3 | Amsterdam West | best of September hotspots in Amsterdam >>

The Plantage | Amsterdam East | best of September hotspots in Amsterdam >>
Next to Artis you’ll find cafe restaurant De Plantage. A good place for dinner, but also for coffee. Especially because of the really cool interior design. Super high ceilings, lots of natural light, a mix of vintage and design and industrial elements of the old buildings of Artis.

Meat West | Amsterdam West | best of September hotspots in Amsterdam >>
Another nice restaurant in The Hallen of Amsterdam is Meat West. Especially favourite by meat lovers! Where most meat restaurants are not so stylish, this is a really nice place to eat your steak. Funny: it’s right next to Halte 3 so you can take a sneak peak through the glass.
