Four Reasons to Visit Amsterdam in March

Wondering what’s on the list of to-dos in Amsterdam for upcoming month? Let us fill you in! From food and drinks to activity and art, March offers a little bit for everyone.

Pancakes, pancakes, pancakes
Oh Crêpe! No plans for the 20th of March yet? No worries! This date being the National Pancake Day of The Netherlands is the best excuse to have pancakes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Will you go for the Dutch, thin “pannenkoeken” or would you rather choose the fluffy American ones? Start your day with delicious buttermilk pancakes at Jansz. and, with the all-day breakfast at Pause at Pulitzer, enjoy more pancakes in the afternoon!

When: 20 March
Where: Pause at Pulitzer and Jansz.

CineDans FEST
Dancing is something that is enjoyed by many; some prefer the spotlights while others rather stay behind closed doors. As a form of art and genre, dance on screen is celebrated at the CineDans festival. Admire the international dance films and documentaries or get inspired by several presentations. Rather try the movements yourself? They also present a variety of interactive installations, VR projects, debates and workshops! Have a look on their website for more information and tickets.
