My oh my, what a week it’s been! I can still not wrap my head around the fact that it has been three years since I opened my place again after its major renovation. But you know what they say, you don’t get older, you just get better. To celebrate this special milestone, you can now book your stay at my place with 15% off by using the code “celebratewithme” on my website. On top of that, a celebration starter kit will be waiting for you upon arrival! This weekend, I cannot wait to continue the celebrations. And of course, there are loads of lovely events and things to do in my beloved city.
Cherry Blossom – Amsterdamse bos
Although almost every street corner in Amsterdam makes for a beautiful sight to me, one of the most enchanting sights in Amsterdam currently is the cherry blossom forest in the Amsterdam forest. Over 400 cherry blossom trees were given to the city a long time ago, and you can almost begin to imagine the power of repetition. In Japan, it’s to host picnic with friends and family underneath these gorgeous trees, which is exactly how a lot of people spend their time in this special place. As this is a little bit further away, you can also enjoy the lovely sight of the cherry blossoms at the Westerpark. It is expected to be the last weekend that these trees will be blooming, before we have to wait another year to experience this little fairytale again. |
Design Icons Amsterdam 2019 – Kromhouthal, April 6th and 7th
All furniture-lovers unite! This weekend, 75 professional vintage design traders from all over Europe will gather in the ‘Kromhouthal’ for Design Icons Amsterdam 2019. From classic items to unique industrial furniture, a very broad range of items will be on shown this weekend, ranging from the 30’s till the 80’s. Not only makes it for a great and artsy exhibition, all items are on sale too. Score!
Amsterdam Spring Beer Crawl – 7th of April 12.00 hour till 21.00 hour
In my book, Spring means sunbathing on a terrace. Accompanied by a nice little pint and some snacks on the side, I can spend hours on a terrace being just perfectly happy. However, as there are so many great terraces and different kinds of (spring)beer to try in Amsterdam, why choose just one? This weekend you can try all kinds of different spring beers during a 7.5-kilometer stroll, visiting 8 different beer cafés throughout Amsterdam. As the weather is supposed to be lovely, this sounds like the perfect Sunday activity to me!
Strolling and shopping
And last but definitely not least, if you’re looking for some nice places to go shopping, there are a lot of events that I’ve told you about earlier hosted this weekend. Flea market shopping at the IJ-hallen, Sunday Market – Spring Edition at Westergasfabriek and last but definitely not least the ‘KLOFFIE Markt’ XL edition in ‘De Hallen’. Happy treasure hunting all!
One could say that there definitely is no time to be bored in Amsterdam this weekend. 😉 Have a great one guys! Cheers!
