Whether you have something special to celebrate – five-year wedding anniversary, engagement, friend’s birthday – or you want to surprise your partner spontaneously; a romantic weekend in Amsterdam will make the sparks fly! Book the Bubbles & Bath special and make your upcoming stay that bit more romantic.
A stay at Inntel Hotels Amsterdam Centre is the ideal base for this. The hotel is ideally located in the heart of the city centre, between Central Station and Dam Square. Within walking distance of the canals and all the highlights, but still nice and quiet thanks to the surrounding traffic-free square. For the most romantic experience, stay in the Monumental Suite, located in the 17th-century monumental part of the hotel. Enjoy the view, relax in the spacious bath tub and dream away in the king-size Douxe bed. Start the day with a delicious breakfast with hot croissants and a glass of bubbles. Or stay lazy in bed and have breakfast delivered there. In the afternoon, the comfortable bar-lounge with fireplace is the place to enjoy a good glass of wine after an unforgettable day in Amsterdam. We have listed some tips for a romantic weekend in Amsterdam.
Romantic tips in Amsterdam
For an adventurous date, take your loved one to the A’DAM Lookout. From this tall building, you have a stunning 360-degree view of the historic city, the dynamic port and the unique rural landscape. For real daredevils, there is a swing that swings over the edge. There is also an interactive exhibition on the history and culture of Amsterdam. For a snack or drink, visit the A’DAM Tower’s panorama restaurant Madam.
The 9 Streets
In The 9 Straatjes – nine picturesque shopping streets – trade, crafts and culture used to prevail. Now, 400 years later, this neighbourhood full of monumental shops is still buzzing with life. Between the Singel, Heren-, Keizers- and Prinsengracht, you’ll find fine goods, trendy shops and special restaurants. But also: a wonderful insight into the centuries-old architecture of Amsterdam’s ring of canals. More shopping tips can be found in Amsterdam’s best shopping streets.
A movie date is always fun, of course. The FilmHallen is a large cinema in a special place; the former tram depot in Amsterdam-West. Hollywood films, arthouse movies and international documentaries are shown here. Before or after the film, also be sure to enjoy the restaurants at Foodhallen Amsterdam.
What could be better than enjoying classical art together? With surprising exhibitions and a stunning permanent collection, The Rijksmuseum is always a great place for a date with cultural depth. Hand in hand in front of the Night Watch. Shuffling in front of a Vermeer. Tip: go on weekdays when it’s quiet. Tip: kill two birds with one stone and book a hotel room with entrance tickets to the Rijksmuseum via Inntel Hotels Amsterdam Centre’s Go To Museum special.
Picnic in the Vondelpark
Want to enjoy the outdoors on a sunny day? Go for a picnic in the Vondelpark. The beautiful city park is perfect for a relaxing walk and in summer concerts are regularly organised here. Order a picnic basket online or get some tasty snacks yourself.
The Royal Concertgebouw
Take your partner to a performance at the magnificent Royal Concertgebouw. With its exceptional acoustics and high-quality programming, it is one of the most exclusive concert halls in the world. Let yourself be mesmerised.
The Netherlands’ oldest zoo Artis is open until sunset every Saturday in June, July and August. On these so-called ZOOmeravonden, there are various activities, students of the Conservatorium van Amsterdam provide music and there is always a live performance by a well-known artist. Love is… watching monkeys with a beautiful sunset!
This beautiful city park with historic factory buildings features greenery, many events, restaurants and various film, theatre and exhibition venues. Mossel & Gin specialises – as the name suggests – in preparing mussel dishes and serving gin tonics. In a beautiful location with sunny garden on the grounds of the Westergasfabriek, you can enjoy all kinds of fish specialities here. Instead of a standard beer with bitterballen, treat your partner to a gin tonic with oysters. A little something different!
Take a boat trip
It doesn’t get much more romantic than the two of you in a boat on the Amsterdam canals. Rent a sloop, buy some snacks and a bottle of bubbles and enjoy the characteristic view from the water. Amsterdam’s old canal houses provide the ultimate romantic backdrop.
