Winter Season 2017

As the cooler and shorter days begin in the city, Amsterdam prepares for a fun-packed season.
The City comes into its own in the winter months with a festive atmosphere, cosy pubs and plenty of events to enjoy.
Highlights include the Light Festival, plays and performances and many Christmas and New Years events and parties.

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.
