Amsterdam Weekend Guide for June 5, 6 & 7

4 June 2015

Weekend inspiration for June 5, 6 & 7!

Are you just as excited about this weekend as I am? I’m flying to Barcelona to visit the coolest hotspots (do you have some tips for me?). But there’s also a lot to do in Amsterdam! At food festival Taste of Amsterdam you can of course have some great high-quality food. Or go to ZOOmeravonden in Artis or Live At in the Amsterdam Forest for music! Also, check out our list with the 48 best terraces in Amsterdam! You definitely want to be sitting in the sun at one of them.  >>> Happy Weekend!
