We have listed some of the best activities and places for you to create a perfect summertime.
Celebrate the summer in Utrecht
In the city centre of Utrecht, there are so many terraces to hop on and celebrate the summer! Want to combine culture and a terrace? Then the first terrace that comes to mind is De Rechtbank. A terrace where convicts and judges have been coming for decades. We condemn this to one of the best terraces in Utrecht!
Korte nieuwstraat 14, De Rechtbank
Celebrate the summer in Amsterdam
Did you always dream of going on a boat in Amsterdam? What a great idea! Spending a hot day on the water can be refreshing and fun. There are many companies that offer a boat for a couple of hours. By walking along the canals you can often find one. If you want to have a drink or dance until the late hours, we recommend going to The Waterkant.
Marnixstraat 246, Waterkant
Celebrate the summer in Zaandam
In Zaandam and the Zaanse Schans, you can sail and have very nice trips in (open!) boats. The sailing route on the water gives you a true “Celebrate the Summer” feeling. In addition, you see a lot of the area. Choose which trip or boat you prefer, because there’s a lot to choose from!
Schansend 7, The Zaanse Schans Cruise
Celebrate the summer in Rotterdam
This will come as a surprise for many people. But did you know that Rotterdam is the greenest city in the Netherlands? This allows you to enjoy many parks and (music) festivals with your bare feet in the grass. We think that is perfect for the ultimate summer!
Celebrate the summer in Eindhoven
In Eindhoven, they know how to really celebrate the summer! Get inspired, go to the many city parks, festivals, terraces or the E3 beach. Yes really, Eindhoven even has its own city beach! Would you like to combine culture, beach and ice cream? Then Eindhoven is your city to go to.
