Your visit to Amsterdam

This time a blog about useful information regarding travel to Amsteram during the Covid-19 situation. After all, what are some handy websites to visit prior to your trip to Amsterdam? What can you do or not do in Amsterdam in 2021?
With spring and summer approaching, I thought it would be useful to go over the restrictions with you and share useful websites and links where you can find the latest news on current Covid-related measures.

The most important thing before you travel, or plan your trip to Amsterdam, is to look for regularly updated information from official sources. For example, the website of the Dutch government. The website has a lot of information on current Covid measures. There are also helpful links to FAQs, for example. If you are aware of the latest information regarding the virus measures, you can move around the city as wisely as possible.

Will I be able to travel to Amsterdam in 2021?
At the time I am writing this blog, it is March 2021. The Netherlands is still in lockdown, there is a curfew in place, all non-essential travel is discouraged and stores, museums, attractions and restaurants are still closed since September 2020. Still, I see the occasional stray tourist walking around the city. Also on social media, I often get messages from people who would still like to plan a trip to Amsterdam and wonder if it is possible.
Should you plan to travel to Amsterdam, you can read all about vacationing in the Netherlands around this time here.

As I wrote in my introduction, in this blog I would focus on useful websites to keep an eye on during your trip to Amsterdam. Another website to keep an eye on is the website of IAMsterdam. On this website you can find information about what to do in Amsterdam and possibly buy tickets for attractions or museums right away. On this website you can also find the latest updates regarding Covid measures.

Finally, I would like to warn you again that the rules surrounding Covid-19 measures are constantly changing. I therefore advise you to take this into account when planning your trip to Amsterdam and also check just before departure for the latest updates around the measures. Each country has different measures. Keep this in mind when traveling through different countries. For example, if you are coming to Amsterdam by train, you should keep a close eye on this website.
Do not forget to check what the rules are in your own country for traveling to the Netherlands.

I hope that by writing this blog I have been able to provide more insight into useful websites to visit prior to your visit to Amsterdam. I also sincerely hope to welcome you back to our hotel soon with open arms and for you to enjoy our beautiful city!
