Default Information about Amsterdam

Hereby some tourist information about Amsterdam:

January in Amsterdam is imbued with an unmistakable post-holiday calm. Visitors are free to alternate between the outdoor chill and the cozy, climate-controlled indoors; brisk walks around town are a treat on clear days, and when the wintry climate loses its appeal, travelers can find respite from the cold in museums, cafes, restaurants and more. The city is as tourist-free as ever this month, but even in the off-peak season, Amsterdam still offers a full calendar of fantastic events and activities, from yearly events to memorable once-offs. Seasonal perks, from ice rinks to koek-en-zopie stands - the catch-all term for rink-side refreshments - are also in full supply; don't miss cold-weather staples such as stamppot, oliebollen and more before the warmer months roll around!

Pros

Airfares and hotel rates are at their lowest in January, as companies try to attract customers with competitive rates

The tourist crowds are also at their yearly low, so January visitors have the run of Amsterdam's popular museums, attractions and more

January is a top month for sales in Amsterdam, with discounts of up to 70%; clothes horses will love the combination of the semi-annual sales with another semi-annual phenomenon: Amsterdam Fashion Week (see below)

Cons

While winters in Amsterdam are not especially harsh, expect cold temperatures and precipitation (mostly rain; snow is infrequent) - see January Temperatures & Rain below


January Temperatures & Rain

Average high: 40F (4.4C)
Average low: 31F (-0.5C)
Average precipitation: 2.7 in (69 mm)

If I came I would fly from Manchester, or even better Leeds / Bradford. Liverpool would also be doable.

Oh, I should definitely look more often on the site here. I'm seeing this now for the first time, and I'm surely interested to be there.

Unfortunately I can't promise anything yet, as the date is very close to the end of my graduation project. This either blocks my agenda directly or by not enabling me to read aMoL before.

It will probably be a small meet now Send me an email Jarno and i will add you to the mailinglist.

Powerslave, PD and Naz: can you let me know if you are still coming? You are the only foreigners interested.

Unless some other people are still interested?
