expat groups & clubs

Joining a social or sports club will make it much easier to settle into life in Amsterdam and build social networks. There is an abundance of international clubs in Amsterdam – for example meet-ups for communities from specific countries or sports clubs – and many are geared specifically towards internationals. So whether you’re a film buff or like playing Gaelic Football, it’s easy to meet likeminded people.
