Amsterdam Weekend Guide for October 12, 13 and 14

Amsterdam weekend guide oktober

23 tips for this weekend in the amsterdam weekend guide

Are you as fond of weekend getaways in Autumn as I am? If so, my book STAYCATION should definitely be in your collection! And did you know that we’ve got over 40 city guides on Your Little Black Book with lots of tips for the best cities? This week YourLBB’s Wieke will be in London for an update of the guide and I’m de-stressing in Limburg. Not in Maastricht this time, but just a little outside and I love to be completely disconnected from everything over there.

Are you in Amsterdam this weekend? Maybe you’d like to grab a movie in the movie theater, because this month lots of great movies are premiering. Or perhaps finally plan that visit to the museum which you keep postponing? Every month we make a list with the newest expositions so let yourself get inspired to discover something new in Amsterdam. Do you already have plans for the weekend?

Have fun with the tips from the Amsterdam Weekend Guide for October 12, 13 and 14.
