7x Things to do on Valentines day 2020
Love is in the air! It’s almost Valentines Day again, the most romantic day of the year! February 14th is the day all couples want to celebrate their love together. Yet it is very difficult to come up with an original date every year that will be appreciated. Below you will find some inspiring tips to help you out!
Cocktail Cruise through Amsterdam
It will probably not be warm in the Netherlands at this time of the year, but the Cocktail Cruise from Stromma contains all the ingredients for a warm and successful evening out. Your favourite cocktails, tasty snacks, a boat full of romantic lighting while cruising through the canals of Amsterdam. While enjoying a delicious cocktail with your favourite person you see Amsterdam in a romantic way.
Under the stars of Amsterdam
After eating out in Amsterdam the evening has just begun. On top of the ADAM LOOKOUT, there is a giant swing with a view across Amsterdam. Spot the idyllic canals and the historic centre of Amsterdam while you huddle up with your love. A floor below in the famous tower there is a luxurious bar where you can romantically enjoy a delicious drink and snack with a 360-degree view over Amsterdam.
Even more stars
A day trip to the zoo with your loved one is a good idea. ARTIS in Amsterdam is the most popular zoo in the Netherlands. They also have a planetarium where you can learn a lot about all the stars in our universe while you probably already know your biggest one very well! To end the day, restaurant De Plantage is a good restaurant next to the zoo where you can have a romantic dinner with your loved one.
The best flight of your life
Maybe less romantic but certainly a must-do experience: THIS IS HOLLAND. The whole experience lasts an average of an hour with the highlight of a spectacular 5-D flight from 12 minutes. In these 12 minutes, it feels like you are flying over the Netherlands while you see all its beauties. and maybe a nice surprise is waiting for you!
Perhaps a bit standard but super fun. Work together with your loved one and find out if you are made for each other by escaping within an hour. Escape Rooms are often done in larger groups but for Valentines day they have special availability just couples. If you do an Escape room in the afternoon, afterwards you can go straight to a great restaurant Bleu, where you can end the evening together in a pleasant way.
Adventure on the water
Cycling on the canals of Amsterdam, that is of course only possible with a pedal boat. There are various pedal boat rental shops in Amsterdam. Since it will be pretty cold on this romantic day, you should crawl up against your love while you explore the capital. After this ride, you can warm up in the famous Hard Rock Café in the middle of the city centre. The largest burgers of the city can be found here and after dinner, you can still sit comfortably with a luxury drink. When you are warmed up again and maybe in de mood to go out it is possible to explore the bustling city until the late hours as famous Amsterdam clubs are less than 300 meters away!
Are all these date suggestions a bit too much for you and do you want to take it easier? Then visit the Rijksmuseum and go back in time with your date. See the famous artworks by Johannes Vermeer, Rembrandt van Rijn and many more. Close to the Rijksmuseum several great restaurants and cafes can be found to end your day with drinks & bites.
Amsterdam Welcome wishes everyone a very Happy Valentines Day!
