10 X tips voor this weekend in Amsterdam // August 23, 24 & 25

22 August 2019

The last weekend of August. Traditionally the weekend of the Uitmarkt that gives the go-ahead for the next season. The stores are slowly packed with Teddy coats and boots. I love the seasons, but this weekend I definitely have mixed feelings about it. Another summer that has flown by. As if the sun feels it too, we will be rewarded with tropical temperatures this weekend. To enjoy the last weekend of August even more. Maybe with a picnic in the park, a late evening with a dinner on a terrace or on one of the rooftops in the city This weekend is also a weekend of many last chances. The last time ZOOmeravond in Artis, the last weekend of the Amsterdam Forest Theater and De Parade. Secretly I am looking forward to a new season. A season full of restaurant openings, new hotels and events. But first enjoy summer in the city for one last time! Do you already know what you are going to do? In the new Amsterdam Weekend Guide for August 23, 24 & 25 I have again listed 10 favourite tips for you. Lots of fun!

❶ From August 23 to 25 you will get a taste of the new cultural season during the Uitmarkt. This year you can find the Uitmarkt on Museumplein and Leidseplein. Check the Facebook event for the complete line-up>>

❷ A few years ago I was already tipped about Het Hem. A kind of NDSM yard-like site in Zaandam. I was a little skeptical, but I’m all in now. At Het Hem they opened restaurant Europa now, where you can eat an 8-course dinner (but secretly more) in an old shed omakase style at a bar overlooking the kitchen. I have your attention huh?

❸ On Saturday, ‘Tropical East’ (Tropisch Oost) will be organised for the second time and the gardens of Hotel Arena Amsterdam, Generator Hostel Amsterdam, De Tropen and the KIT Royal Tropical Institute will be transformed into a mini festival with live music, good food and lots of tropical vibes.
