Now that the orange games are approaching again, you might wonder: where is the best place to watch the UEFA Euro Cup in Amsterdam? Which pubs and cafés have a big screen, and which are best to avoid? We’re here to help with the following spots where you can cheer on the Dutch national team with peace of mind (and a cold beer in hand).

Where can you watch the UEFA Euro 2024 in Amsterdam?

It’s good to know that there are currently three dates for the Dutch national team’s matches: Sunday, 16 June 2024, at 3:00 PM against Poland; Friday, 21 June, at 9:00 PM against France; and Tuesday, 25 June, at 6:00 PM against Austria. Mark these in your calendar. Now, the question remains: where is the best place to watch the UEFA Euro 2024 in Amsterdam? We have the answer to that, too. The following pubs, cafés, and restaurants will be your go-to spots in the coming weeks.


Few terraces are as large and surrounded by greenery as the always cosy Westergasterras. The enormous screen ensures that even the back tables on the large terrace won’t miss the game. Reservations can be made for 4, 6, or 8 people.

A no-brainer, as a brown café like Café Thijssen in the Jordaan is bound to show all the UEFA Euro 2024 matches. This is the place to be to watch a football game in the city’s heart.
Brouwersgracht 107, Amsterdam, cafethijssen.nl


Café Panache is, as always, perfect for enjoying the UEFA Euro 2024. If you’re lucky, they’ll serve bar snacks and oysters.

The Vondeltuin is a great spot with a large terrace and an almost equally large screen during the UEFA Euro 2024. This relaxed spot will be transformed into an orange haven during the tournament. Arrive early to secure a spot.

Café ‘t Papeneiland

It doesn’t get much more Amsterdam than Café ‘t Papeneiland. By day, the elderly Jordaan locals enjoy coffee with apple pie here (and, admittedly, the occasional small beer), but it’s much livelier during the UEFA Euro 2024. Snag a spot upstairs for the best view and an authentic Amsterdam experience.
