Amsterdam Gay Travel Guide: Our home city Amsterdam is in our opinion one of the best and most beautiful places in the world while the Netherlands has been ranked on the third position as one of the gay-friendliest countries in the world by Spartacus Gay Travel Index 2018. The Dutch capital is famous for its canals, Grachten houses, the best cheese on earth, flowers, in particular, tulips and bikes, of course. Living in the biggest city of the Netherlands is actually like a never-ending travel. New exhibitions, parties, hip restaurants and trendy places are popping up all around Amsterdam. The gay-friendly lifestyle of the citizens is most comfortable for gay travelers not only during gay pride canal parade. Gay bars, gay parties and very diverse and open-minded (LGBT) festivals are on the agenda throughout the whole year, especially during the summer months.
When you are planning to travel Amsterdam or the other cities of the Netherlands be aware of bringing rain clothes with you. The chance of getting rainy days is always quite high, similar to London, for example. Although it might be rainy during your holidays in Amsterdam, lots of indoor activities like Escape Rooms, Museums and rain protected sights and museums, like the Stedelijk Museum, are in town waiting to be explored. Are you planning to stay longer in Amsterdam? Take your chance and bike around the city and especially through the countryside. Biking trips to Amsterdamse Bos (Forest of Amsterdam), the castle of Muiden, or even a bike ride to the Dutch coast are pleasurable adventures worth considering while traveling Amsterdam and the Netherlands.
