Holidays in De Plantage

Published on Tuesday, November 28News

What do you need during the holidays? Nice at home or out and about? Then there are a number of great options to spend the holidays in De Plantage.

Performance or museum visit
You can experience a sparkling ballet, a magical opera and a heart-warming family performance in December at National Opera & Ballet. For years, the World Christmas Circus in the Royal Theater Carré has been the ultimate family outing during the Christmas holidays. Splendor Amsterdam organizes various concerts in the run-up to the holidays. At House of GASSAN you can take part in a tour in which you discover the diamond factory. You will find a bright spot during the dark winter months with cozy film and activity evenings at Kriterion. The Hortus will be open extra long hours this winter during the ‘Hortus by Night’ evenings. Experience the enchanting Winter evenings on the Amstel in H’ART full of inspiring chamber music.

Would you like to spend Christmas Eve in a different way? Then come to ARTIS for a special program in the ARTIS Planetarium and conclude with an evening walk through the park. Or enjoy enchanting Christmas music from the Merain Trio at Uilenburgersjoel.

During the holidays, many museums are open as usual, sometimes with adjusted times.

Takeaway versus eating out
Plenty of options to get something tasty at home at Box Sociaal, Sagra Food & Wine, Burgermeester Artis, De Deli Plantagebuurt, or Bagels & Beans. You can of course also be pampered during the holidays at one of the many restaurants; Café-Restaurant de Plantage, Restaurant Entrepot or Restaurant A Tavola.

Let yourself be pampered
Hotel Arena, The Lancaster Hotel Amsterdam and Zoku Amsterdam not only have comfortable rooms, but also very nice packages during the holidays with options such as festive drinks, Christmas dinners, (Christmas) breakfast or a nice late check-out.

One last tip: are you going to do some (festive) shopping? Think again about ‘be local, buy local’ and support the entrepreneurs in your own neighborhood.
