Best time to visit Amsterdam, Netherlands?

  • We recommend visiting Amsterdam in March when there are fewer tourists and accommodations are more affordable. During this month, the nightly cost of an accommodation for 2 is approximately $135. That's 25% cheaper compared to May. Temperatures are in the high 40s, a little cooler than the average 60°F you could experience during peak season.
  • Most tourists visit Amsterdam in the spring/early summer. This is peak season so make sure to book your hotel room a few months early. The Kingsday week (April 26th to May 1st), the Gay Pride week (August 3rd - 7th) as well as the NYE week (December 24th to January 2nd) are particularly busy dates that you should avoid if you don't like crowds.
  • Don't forget to bring an umbrella if you go in the summer, it is the rainiest time of the year in Amsterdam.
