HI FEBRUARY! Did you also find January to be a bit long and dark? Although some weather gurus still predict snow, I actually have some good news. It gets light earlier and dark later and that means that you can enjoy the weekend longer. There is really no reason to stay on the couch like a hermit (although the new list with our On Demand tips from February is very nice). Go do something fun with friends, your lover or yourself! For example something of our new list of the best exhibitions in Amsterdam or must-see cinema films that are currently playing. And … I have listened to your wishes! There is also a brand new theater guide ready with a selection from the best shows currently running in Amsterdam. Prefer to do something else fun? Then read on for the tips from this new Amsterdam Weekend Guide for February 7, 8 & 9!
| FÏNLEY SUNDAY GUIDE: It’s back! In the new Fïnley Sunday Guide for February, you can find 35 tips for all of the Netherlands. From the coolest (food)markets, to hotspots for Sunday afternoon drinks, all the must-see expositions, and tips for beautiful walks in nature. Mix and match the tips for your perfect Sunday!
