Amsterdam has several city beaches where you can enjoy the local summer vibe without leaving its borders. Slip off your business shoes and enjoy after work drinks at Strand Zuid, for one.
Located 4m below sea level, Amsterdam still manages to offer some stunning rooftop views. You can marvel at these day and night over cocktails and bites at Sky Lounge Amsterdam.
The Grachtenfestival showcases classical music in the most idyllic setting right by the city's famous canals. Enjoy the music as well as a picnic while floating on a boat or sitting at the water's side.
Soak up the sun, summer sounds and some tasty treats at one of the city's outdoor spaces. Both Vondelpark and Westerpark have programmes set to excite any cultural and culinary appetite.
Relish a private, 'slow food' dinner in the beautiful secluded garden of Merkelbach restaurant.
