Best time to visit Amsterdam
The best time to visit Amsterdam
Amsterdam’s tourist season kicks off in the spring with tulip season beginning mid-March and peaking in April. Hotel prices spike at the end of April due to Koningsdag, a national holiday celebrating the reigning king or queen with canal parades and parties in the city. Summer is the most popular time to visit Amsterdam as it offers the best weather for beaches, parks, outdoor cafes and canal rides. However, summer can be hot, humid and overly crowded. For cheap flights from Sydney to Amsterdam, try visiting from November to February. This is the Netherlands’ winter and it is often cold enough that the canals freeze over, making for a unique ice-skating experience.
