28 things you’ll want to do this sunny weekend  in amsterdam!

Friday the 13 stand for bad luck? Well, not if you ask me! With a little bit of luck the sun will keep on shining this weekend and we can go and do lots of things outdoors. Because there are lots of nice things on the agenda this weekend in Amsterdam. Like going shopping at the IJ-Hallen, but there’s also a sample sale of Denham. And although it’s technically not in Amsterdam, it’s definitely worth the trip: the Japanese Cherry Blossom Park at the Oude Dorp in Amstelveen. There you’ll get the aactual Spring feeling! These and many more tips can be found in this Amsterdam Weekend Guide of April 13, 14 and 15. Enjoy!
