Swimming in Amsterdam

Enjoying the hot weather? There are lots of places where you can swim in Amsterdam -- from indoor- and outdoor pools to official and unofficial open water swimming holes. And yes, people do swim in the canals and rivers.

That said, note that due to the ongoing hot weather blue-green algae has been spotted at some open water swimming spots.

Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam: No Tickets at the Door

To alleviate the long lines that normally form at the ticket office, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam -- the most popular museum in the Netherlands -- has changed to pre-bought, time-entry tickets only.

Gorgeous weather in Amsterdam! Here's where you can swim:

Amsterdam has many public indoor- and outdoor swimming pools, officially approved natural spots, and a good number of ‘wild swimming’ locations.

And what about all those canals? Are you allowed to swim in them?

Amsterdam street food delicary: Hollandse Nieuwe, New Dutch Herring

We tasted Hollandse Nieuwe today, at the start of the season. What a wonderful taste! Herring this good at the start of the season promises at least a summer long of delicious street food.

And herring is not just a wonderful snack -- it is healthy as well.

Amsterdam street food delicacy: Herring

Without a doubt, the Dutch street food most frowned upon by tourists, expats, and immigrants, is herring. Squeamish tourists often assume the fish is eating raw, but that is not the case.

Herring is the Netherland’s national snack: If you’ve never tasted fresh herring you don’t know what you’re missing.

You’ll have plenty of opportunity to eat this Amsterdam street food delicacy. And note: Hollandse Nieuwe — ‘New Herring’ — season starts on June 13.
