Amsterdam Weekend Guide

Amsterdam Weekend Guide of April 6, 7 and 8

5 April 2018

26 things you’ll want to do this sunny weekend in amsterdam!

YES, the time is finally there: we can take place on the terrace! As this weekend it really seems to get around 20 degrees, and to be fair, it’s about time ;-). I’ve honestly missed it to have a seat outside on a terrace, put my sunglasses on and enjoy a glass of wine or a cold beer. Well, those last things are not an actual option for me just yet, but luckily they also come alcohol free! So what are your plangs this weekend? For example, the Vondeltuin and Westergasfabriek are hosting events outside this weekend, and the Pure Market is back again. But the night owls can also go dancing at the Chin Chin Club or grab a comedy show at Toomler. These and many more tips can be found in this Amsterdam Weekend Guide of April 6, 7 and 8. Enjoy!


PS: This week yet again a new vlog where I tell you about my tendency of nesting and the stress that comes with a renovation of our house! You can watch it on! Have a sneak peek behind the scenes, and you can also follow me on Instagram!
