Amsterdam
  • Time To Visit

Best time to visit
March, April, May, September, October, NovemberSpring, from mid March to early May is Tulip season, a nice time to visit, and is the beginning of tourist season. April is an ideal time as you get to see nature with flowers blooming, medium tourist traffic, and a high chance of good weather. Avoid visiting during the Queen's Day weekend. September to November is also a good time to visit as there are fewer crowds and relatively mild weather, a pleasant season for travel. You might be able to get economical hotel prices, but be prepared for cold weather and some rain. Pack warm clothes and an umbrella.
Moderate time to visit
June, July, August Summer is the peak season and tourists across the globe gather here during June, July, and August. Be prepared to wait in long queues for the top attractions.
Worst time to visit
December, January, FebruaryIn spite of getting a good deal on airfare and accommodation, better to avoid travelling here in the months from December to March as short, dark, and nearly freezing days make winter in Amsterdam pretty unpleasant. If you do visit during that period, don't forget a warm coat – and maybe a pair of thermal underwear or two and an umbrella.
