23 tips for this weekend in the amsterdam weekend guide

Sbah el-khir! I hear you thinking ‘What’s that?!’. Well, as we speak I’m in Marrakech, so I’m trying to speak a little bit of the local language here ;-). And I can assure you, if you ever get the chance to visit this city: GO FOR IT! It’s such a beautiful city, with so many great spots, restaurants and views. So to be completely honest, I’m not really feeling that bad to not be in Amsterdam this weekend… but that’s not because the lack of things to do! It’s recommended to stop by Blijburg aan Zee before they’re closing, and this weekend they also have a great party there. In the Amstel Hotel is the Vondel Disco and in the Oosterpark is a tropical party. And that’s just the beginning of all of our tips!

Do you already have plans for the weekend? Here’s a brand new weekend guide for you including 23 tips that you definitely will want to check out. Because… plans are always bound to change! Have fun with the tips from the Amsterdam Weekend Guide for August 31, September 1 and 2.
