What would be the perfect date in amsterdam?
OK: so this summer I am going to Amsterdam (June/July 2010) and am going to want to go on a(some) perfect date(s) with my special someone... We both like long walks but there are no beaches, so i need a place to go on a walk (several places) We like movies We like beds (wink wink) We like romantic scenery And we like art if there is anything anyone can suggest please go ahead (It doesn't have to be to do with what we like; above)
for a long walk in the park/woods i advise u "het amsterdamse bos" (the amsterdam woods). nice walking there.
Movies, I would recommend Tuschinski theatre the most awesome place to catch a movie. The Tuschinski Theatre in Amsterdam is the Netherlands' most beautiful cinema and one of the greatest ever erected.
This Art Deco movie palace was the crowning achievement of Abraham Tuschinski. A self-taught Jewish tailor from Poland, Tuschinski was on his way to America about one hundred years ago, when he was waylaid in Rotterdam and ended up building a movie theater enterprise in Holland instead.
The big Hollywood blockbuster premiers are always held at this cinema, maybe you bump into a celeb....
Wanna sleep in a famous bed??? Stay at the Amsterdam Hilton, Famous for John Lennon and Yoko Ono's 1969 'bed-in for peace'. Another less romantic detail, our famous painter Herman killed himself by jumping of the roof of this same hotel....
Romantic in general, walking along the moonlight canals, or make a boattrip on one of the canals. Or have a picknick in one of the parks.
And if you have time left, hop on a train and visit my hometown Breda!!! Have fun! And if you have questions left, feel free to contact me. Cheers!
The Sloterpark is with its 91 hectares the biggest park in Amsterdam and it lies around a big puddle. When you walk through this park you'll get a kind of idea of walking through a forest.
I would avoid the Vondelpark in that time of year, because it is very crowded, especially on sunny day's and in the weekends.
For some romantic scenery I would go on a canal boat trip at night or a nice evening walk along the canals.
For the movies I would absolutely recommend the Tuschinski theatre, near Rembrandtsplein(square).
I chose mjen somewhere very smallish, by the streams and little shadowy hideouts behind our Queen's Hague's home, (her palace as well) where you can lay the mat out, open that picnic basket, set aside yr bicycles against the tree offering you plenty of shade and you both fall into each other arms while a book is read or tales of yesteryear is aired... ;)
Perhaps boating is another romance you'd prefer for which we havve several large lakes and boats for hire.
Holland is just a perfect place for summertime romance... many found thrilling love escapades in our country too.:)
The Hague's splendor with artistry and richly cultured surroundings embodies even more places to stroll about from shops to beaches and find peaceful paths along our dunes... mid June is ideal which many who have once or twice been here would agree too.
