Amsterdam Weekend Guide for August 26, 27 & 28

25 August 2016

Can you believe it’s the last weekend of August already? Woah, time is flying by so so fast! And we can look back to a perfect summer. Drinks on the most beautiful rooftops, watching the best movies in outdoor cinemas and of course a festival every now and then. The Amsterdam summers are my favourite :-) But before we really say goodbye to summer, we still have one more weekend to make the best of it. The last weekend of August as well as the very last weekend of the Parade. Haven’t you been there yet? This is your last chance! And of course yet again plenty of new hotspots have opened. Check out these and more fun to do’s in this Amsterdam Weekend Guide >> Enjoy!
