Amsterdam Weekend Guide for March 1, 2 & 3

28 February 2019


Although it feels like the temperature just dropped to close to zero again, Spring is stuck in my head and here to stay. I love the changing of the seasons. New Season, new everything, that is my approach. That’s why I’m currently in the middle of a big closet detox. And I am spending my afternoons on my bike going from one new hotspot to the other, trying out little coffee spots that I would normally never go to because it’s in an area where I don’t go often. Love it! The past week I’ve been really busy coming up with new destinations. Where do I want to go to this year? Where haven’t I been yet? One of these locations is the underwater restaurant Under , where I am going for a very exclusive dinner soon, as one of the first people in the world!

Of course there are loads of fun things to do in Amsterdam this Spring. But let’s start with enjoying the weekend ahead. This weekend is all about coffee, Sunday markets, wine tastings and fashion sales.  In this new Amsterdam Weekend Guide for March 1, 2 & 3 I have listed 10 tips for fun stuff to do in Amsterdam. Happy weekend!

❸ This Sunday, the Sunday Market returns at the Westergasterrein with their Spring Is In The Air edition. The place to be for eating, drinking, shopping from local designers and makers and of course there will be live entertainment again. More info in the Facebook event >>

I don’t know if I have the courage to do this, but it’s definitely interesting! This method for resetting your body and boosting your immune system is worth a shot!

❼ I LOVE farmers markets. Last week we published an article all about the farmers market in Tokyo. A little closer to home this Saturday is the famous Noordermarkt, but definitely make sure to also check out the’ Buurderij in het Amstelkwartier’ in Amsterdam East. This Saturday local farmers are hosting a tasting of their products at the QO hotel. From goose meat to handmade cheeses. A true taste feast! Read all about it in their Facebook event >>

  • Going outside in cities to spot street art is super cool, but let’s be honest, super cold right now. That’s why you should go to the MOCO museum. With lots of pieces by the famous Banksy, but they are also hosting a new exhibition with work by the New York artist Daniel Arsham.
