The best time to travel to Amsterdam really depends on the main attraction that brings you into this quaint European city. Amsterdam has a steady stream of visitors round the year, but if you want to avoid peak tourist season, the best time to visit would be from April to May and starting again in late September to end of October. However, the world-famous tulip season brings breathtaking sights, and while it may overlap some tourist-heavy weekends, it is still one of the best times to fly to Amsterdam. From mid-March to early May, you can capture the unmistakable sight of fresh blossoms sprawling across the countryside and throughout the city.

Tips and tricks for visiting Amsterdam

Avoid Major Holidays

Queens’ Day and Liberation Day weekends in April are extremely busy; therefore, you will incur much higher room rates at local hotels.

Attractions and Museums Have Long Lines in August

Due to school holidays for the summer, August brings more crowds into Amsterdam, which means longer queues for attractions, museums, and trams. Some bars and restaurants also close for the month, which means you will not have as many options.

Amsterdam’s Red Light District is Legal

Prostitution is not illegal in Amsterdam; therefore, the Red Light District is home to prostitution outlets. The area is heavily monitored by police patrols and security cameras. There are also a number of bars, restaurants, and historical museums in the Red Light District. The oldest church in the city, Oude Kerk, is in the middle of the District. Most visitors can pass through the District without any problems, but taking photographs of the prostitutes is discouraged.
