We think Amsterdam is the most beautiful city in the world and we want you to explore it to the fullest. The best way to experience the allure of Amsterdam is by open boat. Let us share all the reasons why.
Amsterdam is seen as a LGBTI+-friendly city. One of the reasons is one of the world’s largest celebrations of the Pride, every last week of July and/or first week of august.

Since then, many more LGBTI-bars and clubs in Amsterdam followed. We’ve listed a few of the many places to go.
