Easter in Amsterdam

With the tulips in bloom and spring in the air, there is no better place to be than in Amsterdam during the long Easter weekend. In 2019, Easter Sunday falls on 21 April. 

Enjoy an exquisite brunch in one of Amsterdam’s finest hotels, hunt for eggs in a historical zoo, visit one of the city’s museums or simply come to admire the flowers – there’s plenty to do from Friday to Monday for a fun and relaxing weekend break.

Plan ahead

The traffic in Amsterdam is expected to be very busy over the Easter weekend due to high numbers of visitors, and roadworks taking place in the city. Please plan your journey ahead and consider travelling by public transport rather than car.
