  • Weekly Amsterdam Guide: 12-18 December 2016

    Welcome to our weekly Amsterdam guide! Let’s look at what the Dutch capital has to offer!

    A Beer out of Raindrops

    December 14

    One of the things the Netherlands is famous for is water management. Even though the country is pretty good at this already, the Dutch are never tired to improve. In cooperation with Hemelswater, Knowledge Mile Amsterdam and brewery De Prael, Amsterdam Volkshotel has managed to brew beer out of rainwater and now invites you to taste it! Have a drink, learn the story behind it and enjoy the great local jazz talents. The entrance is free.

    Light Festival Photowalk (Part 2)

    December 17

    Are you into photography and madly in love with Amsterdam? Then you should definitely join the second part of the Light Festival Photowalk organized by the Amsterdam Photo Club. Follow the Illuminade route hand in hand with dozens of like-minded people and capture the best artworks of the festival in pictures.

    Valhalla Festival

    December 17

    Four years ago, a mysterious night circus came to the Dutch capital. That was the very first edition of Valhalla Festival, an unbelievable night full of wonders, crazy fun and electronic music. Since then, the festival’s become a good tradition, and this year Amsterdam welcomes the latest, fifth, edition of a bizarre Valhalla ride. Dare to hop in?

    Ugly Christmas Sweater Run

    December 17

    Do you have an ugly Christmas sweater or were you planning on buying one? Are you into running or simply want to join something fun for the weekend? If so, this event is just for you! Run (or walk!) the merriest 5km of the year, compete for the best costume prize and join the drinks afterward. Sounds like a wonderful pre-party before Christmas, doesn’t it?

    Finally, don’t forget about the Light Festival that will be there until January 22, as well as the Dutch Ice Sculpture Festival and the ice rink on Museumplein open until February 5. Also, a couple of Christmas markets are still on. Check it out!

    Seems like that’s all for this week! Did you like our Amsterdam guide? Then stay tuned for more: we promise to create the similar one every week!
