Beurs van Berlage
The biggest beer festival in The Netherlands, located in one of Amsterdam’s most iconic and beautiful locations. Taste over one hundred beers, from big and small breweries, mingle with likeminded locals and enjoy some live music to top it off.
Until the 27th of November
Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam
De Stijl has always been intricately linked to Amsterdam’s museum of Modern Art since magazine The Stijl was first published in 1917, exactly 100 years ago. This exposition has been running for almost a year and will soon end, so enjoy this opportunity to get a little more familiar with this famous and radical Dutch art movement, that inspired and continues to inspire designers, creators and artist all over the world.
At Fondue Oost, a new restaurant on the lively Javastraat; they understand very well that there is no better cure for October blues than dipping fresh bread in hot melted cheese and sipping crisp white wine. The menu offers classic fondue, but there is also a very intriguing Mexican option.
Minutes away from the Bijenkorf another luxury department store just celebrated its grand opening in September, turning the Rokin officially into the street you should avoid if you are on a budget. If you think that a budget is a very relative concept, take a couple of hours and your credit card to visit Amsterdam’s most swanky new store. And be assured; Hudson Bay, apparently, is a little less highbrow than the Bijenkorf.
October 21, 10:00 till 18:00
