Offering the most unusual events, 24H Amsterdam shows the city in a completely different light. Whether you’re a traveller who’s just arrived to explore “the city of sin” or one of the most seasoned Amsterdammers, 24H will still have something to surprise you with!
On 28th of October, this year’s last edition of 24H Amsterdam – 24H Noord – takes place in various venues north of the River IJ, showcasing the highlights of this area in a 24-hour period.
What is 24H?
24H Amsterdam originated from the idea to explore every neighbourhood of the Dutch capital more closely. As each of them has so much to offer, even people living there for years might still not know all the secrets.
To bring the idea to life, the five editions of 24H were created, each of them focusing on a particular neighbourhood – Oost, West, Zuidoost, Zuid and Noord. In only twenty-four hours, each of the neighbourhoods has to present all its attractions to the public.
24H Noord: Events to Join
It’s hard to find a place that’s not involved. Museums and galleries open their doors to introduce unique exhibitions. Hotels, shops and clubs throw special events. Even outdoor venues do not stay aside, organizing games and captivating activities.
24H Noord offers plenty of opportunities to choose from. There are workshops at day and parties at night, tours around the city, special cinema performances, dance events and so much more!
