Three tips to celebrate freedom in Amsterdam

From and on the water, there is plenty to do during Liberation Day in Amsterdam. Various events are organized throughout the (inner) city. Mostly, you can enjoy them for free. Our three tips for this day:

  • Tip 1: You can enjoy a meal of freedom at about 100 locations in Amsterdam. Tens of thousands of people from Amsterdam come together. Many meals are free. We would like to bring you to one of these ‘freedom meals’.
  • Tip 2: The Liberation Festival is held every year in the Westerpark. Various bands and DJ's perform on seven different stages. We gladly drop you off at the festival after a nice boat trip. Or we will pick you up there.
  • Tip 3: True to tradition, Liberation Day concludes with the Concert op de Amstel. A unique music event on the water, led by The Metropole Orchestra and where the royal family are present as guests of honour. Access is free.
