Dinner with a view 

Rijksmuseum Ferris wheel

If you have ever wanted to dine while spinning around, then you’re in luck. Joris Bijdendijk of RIJKS® will be serving his favourite dishes at Smakenrad, a restaurant in a Ferris wheel at RAI Amsterdam. Take in a stunning view of the city as you rotate up high sampling tasty morsels in heated gondolas for up to five people from the same household. Don’t waste time before booking your spot as this is sure to sell out fast.
