Climate in Amsterdam

Similar to old blighty, the summers aren’t usually too hot providing there’s no heatwaves and the winters don’t get stuck in the minuses for too long. Summer days sit comfortably in the low twenties and evenings don’t dip below the double digits. It can be a bit windy (they are known for windmills after all…) so even in the summer we’d recommend bringing some layers just in case. Spring and autumn aren’t as wet as England, but the weather is as unpredictable day to day as back home. Expect some frost and chills in the Winter, but snow is a rare sight.

Getting around Amsterdam

The city centre is compact enough that you can navigate the majority of it by foot. The locals preferred form of transport is a bike… but we wouldn’t recommend clambering on one after a few too many beers. If you’re venturing out of the central then the public transport will take you wherever you need to go. Pick up an OV-chipkaart, Amsterdam’s version of the Oystercard. If you’ll be travelling out a lot you might want to grab a weekend ticket. These cards can be used on the trams, metro and buses… just tap in and tap out like you would with an Oystercard. Routes are pretty easy to navigate, but made even simpler because, of course, there’s an app for that. Cars aren’t necessary in the city centre, not least due to the huge amount of cyclists in the way. If you’re after a taxi back to your accommodation at the end of the night avoid hailing one at the Central Station or Leidseplein as they have a reputation for ripping people, tourists and locals alike, off. Fares are metered at a start price of €2.89 and then €2.12 per km. You can try a fixed rate, but it’s usually cheaper to stay on the meter. As a point of reference it shouldn’t cost you more than €10 to get anywhere in the ‘historic’ city centre of Amsterdam.

Nightlife in Amsterdam

We’re not really sure where to begin with Amsterdam’s nightlife. Its reputation as a party city is more than deserved. You’ll likely be spending your weekend around Amsterdam Centrum, the city centre… which also happens to be home to the red light district. Home to infamous Bananen Bar and Casa Rosso… with girls in every shape and size (and fruit…) these clubs are the ideal stop off for any stag do looking for some R-rated entertainment. Tempting though it is to stay there and watch the girls in the windows all weekend, you’ll want to venture out of the red light district for the incredibly delicious beer bars, including American and Belgian bars serving craft brews. If craft beers don’t impress you the huge choice of bars, pubs and coffeeshops across the city centre definitely will. The club scene in Amsterdam caters to all tastes, in the city centre alone you’ll find plenty of European style superclubs, hipster warehouses, elite hangouts and student haunts in Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein. If you’re looking for the underground scene head out South of the city centre for clubs that would look at home in Berlin.

Eating in Amsterdam

As with the nightlife, there isn’t really much that Amsterdam doesn’t do well. Boasting stylish and top quality restaurants, international cuisine, traditional cafes and everything in between. You’ll find all the usual fast food joints scattered across the city if you’re after a quick bite, but we’d recommend trying some of the locals’ favourites. You’ll find bitterballen at pretty much every café and pub you stop off at, sort of like tiny kievs filled with beef broth usually they’re a popularity probably has something to do with how well they complement a pint. The Dutch take on fries, patat, is available from vending machines across the city; if you’re after the real Dutch experience try patatje oorlog – fries smothered in mayo, onions and peanut satay. Those with a sweet tooth won’t want to miss out on olliebollen, poffertjes and stroopwafel, Amsterdam’s favourite desserts.

Things to see in Amsterdam

Noord: Get out of the city centre for a day and head north. You can catch a free ferry from Central Station which only takes 20 minutes to get across the water. Hipster paradise, it’s full of skate parks, art installations, and shipping containers which have been converted into beachside bars and cafes. Bonus: in the summer it’s a festival lover’s paradise.
The Red Light District: We’re going to have to give this a mention. We’ve already covered some of what the red light district can offer you once the night falls, but it’s worth a visit during the day too. You’ll find the usual array of coffeeshops if that’s what you’re after, as well as the infamous Sex Museum, or if you’re after a new outfit or your or for the bride-to-be (or for the stag to wear out that evening…) head down to Webers erotic store.
Heineken Brewery: Popular around the globe, this refreshing lager is a firm favourite with our stags! Head to the brewery where you’ll get to see the behind the scenes magic that goes into making your beer so delicious. Like Disneyland, for blokes.
