This city is definitely “THE” party powerhouse of the Netherlands. The Netherlands has lax drug laws so it is legal to smoke weed, eat hash, or space cakes as long as you are 18 years of age or older. However, in recent times, in an effort to combat “drug tourism”, some laws were re-written so that in some parts of the Netherlands (Amsterdam not included) you have to be a resident to legally possess and consume weed. Prostitution is also legal in Amsterdam (The red light district is where you would want to go if that is your scene).
Visiting the Netherlands without going to “Amsterdam” equates going to watch the Chicago bulls in the 90’s without Micheal Jordan on the team. Amsterdam is where it all happens in the Netherlands. There are tons of Nightclubs, Cafe’s, Coffee Shops (we mean weed and space cake shops) and restaurants that would guarantee a good time in this awesome city. It is also advisable to rent a bicycle while visiting Amsterdam. One of our partytrailers from Los Angeles (L.A.) said it was great to roll up to “Club Abe” (one of Amsterdam’s best nightclubs) on a bicycle and think nothing of it. This would not have been the case in his hometown of Los Angeles. Amsterdam has a ton of places where you can party but nowhere in the city is there a concentration of entertainment options like Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein.
