Our Review of the Escape Room Amsterdam Xitroom – Our hometown, the Dutch capital Amsterdam, has numerous Escape Rooms to offer, most of them in English language and therefore an ideal adventure during your gay travels to the Netherlands. The Escape Room “The Professor ” by Xitroom is our this week’s looked-up-in-a-room experience. The team game is located right at the famous Prins Hendrikkade just a 10 minutes walk from Amsterdam Centraal, the main station, the harbor area including Nemo and the Red-Light-District as some of the best-known sights right in the city center of Amsterdam. We could choose between two different rooms beforehand while making the appointment. A cozy waiting area with drinks and snacks and very friendly and helpful staff was waiting for us to lock us up and trying to make it as difficult as possible for us to find our way out. To escape the room “The Professor” on time before the 60 minutes were up, we teamed up with our friend Barbara from Austria. Enjoy our review of the Xitroom Escape Room “The Professor” and see the looked-up world through a couple of gay men’s eyes!

A Gay Couple City Weekend Eindhoven or how the history of light reinvents the Modern Dutch Design Capital in the South of the Netherlands. Eindhoven, the 5th largest Dutch City in province of North Brabant is a hiddeen historic treasure sadly often underestimated, even by its citizens. But Eindhoven is the European city of light, especially during the early 20th century when Philips, the electronic giant, started to influence the light life of the world. Exploring the city of Eindhoven with some time to walk the city also outside the center during a Gay Couple City Weekend, opened up the beauty of Industrial design and architecture. We as fans of modern design found so many, so beautiful spots to fall in love with all over the municipality, that we can only recommend to plan a trip to Eindhoven, even in January. Enjoy reading our kick-off story of our last years Dutch Gay City Tour with our perfect Gay Couple Weekend Eindhoven.

The Restaurant GYS Voorstraat Utrecht is our tip for a city trip to Utrecht. Especially after a morning exploring the Dutch city. If you get hungry in the center, just walk around the famous Janskerk. In less than 5 minutes your next stop for a Lunch break is GYS. It is very easy to find, just at the corner of Amsterdamsestraatweg and Voorstraat in an old Dutch building, you will find one of the two GYS, the restaurant GYS Voorstraat Utrecht.
Restaurant Dertien Rotterdam is one of the hipper and interesting places Rotterdam has to offer. The Chef together with his young and motivated staff are offering special food and a variety of delicious drinks. The two-floor restaurant feels very open and the real fire oven (for cooking) and the old-fashioned way of “writing” the menu by putting small wooden cards with a ladder on the wall, gives this place a sense of craftsmanship with an eye for details. Talk to the guys and ask about their particular way of preparing food by fermentation. Especially a good place for foodies who like a bit of adventure and innovation.
