Weekend in Amsterdam at the beginning of June

Week-end in Amsterdam June 2023

Weekend in Amsterdam at the beginning of June. I recently spent a weekend in Amsterdam with my daughter and a friend I have known for over 60 years and her daughter. In fact, the family friendships go back three generations. Our mothers were friends back in the mid-fifties and our daughters continue this line of friendship today. You can check out a week-end we all spent together in Paris in 2019 here.

Black trousers Benettonuk | White shirt also BenettonUK (similar below). Blue cashmere cardigan originally from MarksandSpencer Autograph range (similar). JohnLewis&Partners also has a good selection. I find that lightweight cashmere is a good option for Summer evenings.

canal boats in Amsterdam June 23

The favourite part of my visit was finding quiet corners and exploring hidden canals. As we were there on a weekend it was busy and you have to be careful not to get run over by a bicycle. Cycling seems to be the best way to get around the city however they do wizz around the corners very fast.

Amsterdam architecture June 23

The architecture was very beautiful. The houses are tall and narrow many overlooking the canals. We booked a canal tour with The Blue Boat Company. Classically touristy however it did give us a good view of Amsterdam from the main canals with a history of how the city developed and the origin of the architecture of the main buildings.

Flamingoes at the Amsterdam zoo

We found a lovely quiet corner and could peek through to the pink flamingoes in the Amsterdam zoo.
