From the 19th till the 23rd of August, the harbor of Amsterdam will host the biggest nautical event of Europe. Once every five years the IJ-harbor will look like it did in it’s heyday during the Golden Age and over 600 tall ships, Dutch historical and modern ships will moor from these ports. Lots of stuff to see and do during Sail Amsterdam 2015! For example, if you’re not too shy for a little bit of height, try the Telegraaf Viewpoint which will take you up to 50 metres for the best view of the nautic event. ‘Optimist on Tour’ is a great opportunity for kids to meet Dutch watersports and families will have a good time visiting the Tall Ship ‘Etoile du Roy’. At the Northside of the IJ the SAIL Music Marina will be held for the ones in need of some tunes.
Be sure not to miss this traditional Dutch event and don’t forget to pick up your luggage at Drop&Go afterwards!
