Love is in the air!

Published on Tuesday, January 31News

It’s almost time to celebrate love again during Valentine’s Day. If you want to do something fun, there are plenty of options in our Plantage neighborhood. Here are some suggestions:

Would you like to be in a tropical atmosphere? Then head to the beautiful botanical garden in the Hortus. Walk along the walkway in the amazing greenhouse and look at the tropical plants from above. Look at the two different types of buds of the star magnolia (𝘔𝘢𝘨𝘯𝘰𝘭𝘪𝘢 𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘵𝘢): the larger ones grow into beautiful white flowers, the smaller ones turn into fresh green leaves. Or get butterflies in your stomach in the Butterfly Garden!

Treat yourself and your love with a perfect romantic Valentine’s Day at Hotel Arena! Impress your loved one with a candlelight dinner, a unique movie experience in our Chapel where they play the classic Notting Hill, or a enjoy a romantic stay in one of their luxurious rooms.

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with your most special person at the Amsterdam Museum! Come by between 14 and 19 February to get to know your favorite person even better! Based on ten questions, you walk through the permanent exhibition Panorama Amsterdam and ask questions that you might not otherwise ask. Learn something about Amsterdam and about each other. Questions can be picked up free of charge at the counter with a valid entrance ticket.

Watch, at Kriterion at 8 pm, the romantic movie Punch-Drunk love: for Barry Egan (Adam Sandler), the owner of a small business, it is impossible to fall in love thanks to the way he was treated by his seven sisters.
