27 things you’ll want to do in amsterdam this weekend

It’s just last weekend that we were so thrilled about the warm weather, this weekend it’s time to wear your gloves again in Amsterdam. But luckily we don’t need to stay inside, because of course there are many things to do this weekend in Amsterdam! Like a Pool Party in the Sloterparkbad on Saturday, or go for shopping at The Maker Market in De Hallen and on Sunday there are yet again lots of spots to visit for any kind of brunch you can think of. Are you chosing the Bottomless Brunch at the INK Hotel, or do you prefer an extensive brunch like at Izakaya? Whatever you pick, I wish you lots of fun this weekend in Amsterdam!
