Summer Season 2015

Summer in Amsterdam. As the warmer and longer days begin in the city, Amsterdam prepares for a hopefully sunny and certainly fun-packed season. Besides the Vondelpark Open Air Theatre and the many music festivals, the city is buzzing with art and culture. Of course a picnic in the park or a ride through the canals are perfect in the summer sunshine.

Cannabis City

Every week thousands come to the Netherlands to enjoy a society where cannabis is available to anyone over 18 years of age, and able to identify themselves. Many, coming by car from Belgium, France and Germany, head from the country’s border straight for the nearest town with a Coffeeshop. Starting 2012 this situation has changed, leaving Amsterdam the No.1 visiting city for Cannabis tourism in the world.
