It is way past Valentine’s Day, but Amsterdam is still a good place to visit if you are looking for a romantic getaway. Following are some of the best places to visit with your loved one when you are in the Venice of the North.
The Rembrandt House Museum
If you love art, then this is the perfect place to be. There were many famous artists to come out of the Netherlands. Rembrandt van Rijn and many other Dutch masters were responsible for painting many parts of the city on canvas, and you will see those works at this museum. This place lets you catch a glimpse into their lives, as well as enjoy a Dutch artwork collection.
This spectacular exhibition centers on the human body, showing its inner workings as well as the effects on it from unhealthy lifestyles. If you want an eye-opener about the full effects of, say, smoking, then this is the place.
Do you want to dance together, or attend and intimate concert? There is an extended music program in Amsterdam, which showcases Rock, Pop, Dance, Classic, and R&B music. If you are more of a piano person, then check out the Pianobar Maximl it would surely be an experience to cherish for a lifetime.
Head to West-Amsterdam and go to the Food Halls after you tour Amsterdam. This is a historical location, which lets you sample different cuisines and food concepts. Take a walk together alongside the cozy-looking food stands and buy some delicious snacks. Some of the typical Dutch items you may want to try are frikandel, stroopwafel, stamppot, and haring.
After eating at the stands, head on down to the neighboring establishment, the Film Halls. With nine halls, this is the biggest cinema in Amsterdam. You have Hollywood movies and documentaries showing there, as well as kid-friendly movies. Get some pop corn and enjoy a show together.
Roller Skate Disco
Over couple of months, you get to take part in a special skating disco in West Amsterdam. Skate Dance Roller Disco is good if you both know how to skate, but if either of you does not, there is still the option of getting classes beforehand. In fact, this may be the most romantic part in the whole thing.
Take a Day Off
You will both be exhausted, so take the day off. Head to a spa in Amsterdam and relax in the sauna, then top it off with a relaxing massage.
