You can very simply plan what you want to see and experience here as long as twelve months ahead. So what’s the best time of the year to visit Amsterdam? That depends on what you are looking for. Springtime is bright and colourful in Amsterdam. In summer it buzzes with all sorts of outdoor activities and festivals.
In autumn and winter, as the leaves are blown off the trees, Amsterdam’s beautiful gables reappear from behind the foliage in their full glory. When the evening sun sets in, you can enjoy the wonderfully illuminated canal houses and bridges. In spring although it can be a bit nippy, everyone is hoping for sunshine and warmth. Then, Amsterdam looks fresh with new green foliage on the trees and blooming tulips and other flowers in the parks. As the improving weather starts so do the opportunities of enjoying sitting on a café terrace, have a nice drink, something to eat and just watch people passing by.
A day to mark is in your diary with big orange letters, when you are here, of course, is 27 April, Kings Day, when the whole town turns into one big orange party. The theatres and concert halls fire on all cylinders now, with beautiful operas, musicals and dance shows. The many museums of Amsterdam still bring top-level exhibitions during the spring. Visit the masterpieces like Rembrandt’s night watch at the Rijksmuseum. Then there are thousands of other things to do in Amsterdam during the spring.
The centre of Amsterdam has innumerable charming buildings and sights to see. It is not just the buildings or sights themselves, but the combination of canals, streets, bridges, trees and historic buildings, which make the city centre one large, a unique monument. The architectural structure, historic buildings and many sights give the city its special character, which is appreciated by many visitors and residents.

Tulips, once there was a flower that was unable to settle down anywhere. It started in the mountains in Kazakhstan, then the flower bulb wandered about going through Persia, China and Turkey before it found its current home here.
Windmills, the first windmills were invented in antiquity, but it was the Dutch who really hit it off with this wooden giant.
