Live a summer of best moments. Looking for an adventure-packed weekend, or a relaxing one week stay in Amsterdam? Whether you’re travelling with friends, family, solo, or with your significant other, we’ve curated some of the best moments to enjoy while staying at one of our Park Plaza hotels in Amsterdam.
Amsterdam during summer is vibrant as always, but friendlier, happier, and beachier. Obviously when in Amsterdam, you can easily hop on the train and find yourself in Zandvoort aan Zee in just half an hour, but you don’t even have to go out of town! There’s plenty to go to for a refreshment and a sunny city break. To name a few: Pllek, Strandzuid, Kaap, Sloterpas (for swimming), and IJburg beach.
Cruise your way through Amsterdam
A boat tour is on the list any time of the year when visiting Amsterdam, but it’s a special something to find yourself on the city waters during sunny summer days. You’ll experience Amsterdam like no other way, it feels a bit magical and movielike. Do it like the locals do and rent your own boat for a few hours! Example: Those Damn Boat Guys.
Ride a bike and stop for a local favourite ice cream
Sounds like music to your ears, doesn’t it? If you want to blend with the locals, there’s for sure no better way than to hop on a bike. Besides cycling through the entire city in just one day (yes, that is a possibility in Amsterdam), it’s also a breezy way of discovering the city on those hot days. And of course, a local favourite ice cream place such as IJscuypje and Massimo Gelato could not be missed as a stop.
Summer season means festival season
Do we need to say more? Throughout the city summer festival events take place basically every week. Music, food, people, attractions, and hopefully some sun, all together at one place. To name a few of the popular ones: Chin Chin Festival, Vunzige Deuntjes Festival, Milkshake Festival, Loveland Festival, STRAFWERK Festival, and Nomads Festival. Besides these hotspots, there are also family festivals such as De Parade, Trek, and Appelsap. Choose your preferred one and just loose it for a day.
My Gender, My Pride
Amsterdam is one of the largest LQBTQ+ friendly cities in the world, but there’s always room for improvement. To create awareness, a higher level of acceptation and foremost to celebrate love for all, Pride is a yearly recurring festive event that turns the city upside down. From July 30th – August 7, the city is a true beacon of love, celebration, and pleasure with its famous Canal Parade as the show stopping highlight.
art’otel Amsterdam is located in the midst of it all and offers a unique Wake up with Pride package during that time
