Amsterdam Weekend Guide for October 18, 19 & 20

17 October 2019

Hello Amsterdam Dance Event! We can’t miss it. The city is turning yellow this weekend. But … if you want nothing to do with any of the party fever, not to worry, because there is also plenty of other fun stuff to do in the city. Now that we live close to the Amsterdamse Bos, we are going to the Pure Market on Sunday for sure. We are also very busy making our temporary home a HOME and we are busy renovating in our own house. I will give another update about Project Renovation soon! For now I wish you a nice weekend and have fun with the 10 tips from this new Amsterdam Weekend Guide for October 18, 19 & 20.

NEW: Sundays will never be the same, thanks to these tips! In the Fïnley Sunday Guide you will find 29 tips for activities and locations in the Netherlands for the perfect Sunday. From the coolest (food) markets to the best place for a Sunday afternoon drink and tips for that one exhibition that you must see. Click here for the October Guide >>
