Back to the weekend now! BRRR it’s cold. Very cold! So this Amsterdam Weekend Guide is full of nice spots to enjoy Amsterdam at its best. From hotspots for hot coco to the best coffee bars and new restaurant openings. Amsterdam is vibrant as always! I’m very excited to go out for dinner with friends to Bordewijk. In the last Sunday 7, Pieter inspired me to finally go there. Oh and I’m going to Ice Skate with Eva of Amsterdam FM. Enjoy your weekend too!
