Amsterdam is high on many people’s bucket list, just as it is, with all the craziness, special atmosphere and free spirit. It’s a quite unique city, so some of the things you can do only here and nowhere else. But in addition to those ones, there are some specialties that are not too ordinary even for this city. The unusual experiences can be so diverse in Amsterdam, that everybody will find something to their taste.
There is hardly any workshops that you won’t be able to find in Amsterdam, but we’re not going to recommend you any of the boring stuff. How about learning all about the flirting science in a fun and interactive way? What could be a better place than Amsterdam for applying your freshly acquired skills and testing yourself after hilarious flirting workshops? It will be as crazy as you allow it to be and the best part is that you can bring your Flirt Diploma home as a souvenir from the Netherlands.
Some people think it’s creepy, others find it exciting, but for sure nobody is indifferent towards Body Worlds of Amsterdam. The original exhibition of real, plastinated human bodies will allow you to look inside the human flesh and discover its mysteries. And of course, since Amsterdam is your happy destination, even this frightening museum has the Happiness Project theme. Quite an unusual place for revealing the secrets of happiness and its effects on your health, but why not! Special events and activities are waiting for you at Body Worlds this summer.
Continuing the topic of the most unique museums, let us ask you whether you’ve ever been to the Sex Museum before? Well, you have a great opportunity to visit one in the most liberal and free city in Europe. Besides, it’s right next door to Body Worlds, so make it into “a weird museums day.” The Sex Museum will surprise you with the amount of sculptures, shapes, pictures and even sounds related to one particular theme that might make your mum uncomfortable. Unique objects will scream for your attention, while the overall atmosphere will make you more curious about the human sexuality.
The coldest bar of Amsterdam will provide you with an unusual drinking experience among the 60 tons of natural ice with -10 degrees Celsius. Do you think you will be able to last long or would you need a few of body warming shots? Well, be prepared as they will be served in glasses made of ice! But no worries, any outfit would do, as you will be given a thermal coat and gloves upon arrival to keep you warm throughout the night. An epic place for cool pictures, and nobody would guess there are shot in Amsterdam.
There are quite a few escape rooms in Amsterdam, and probably your vacation won’t be enough for discovering all of them. So let’s have a look at the most exciting ones! Sherlocked is ready to surprise you with two escapes room (and the third one is launching on June 10th-maybe you want to be the first guest there?). The Vault allows you to feel like a thief who needs to break in the most secure safe in Amsterdam, but you can also get caught, so be aware! The Architect presents a mysterious room to you that has been used by the secret Society of the Crossed Keys, except it’s not too easy to get inside it. If you’re more into something scarier, then how about Zombie Escape with a high-tech lab, hungry zombies and the dark room? In case you feel for something both history-related and fun, then Escape through Time is the best for you! Time travel is possible now, and you’re heading right to Boom Chicago with actors and humor during the World World II to solve some puzzles and search for special clues. We hope that you’re not claustrophobic, as Claustrophobia is an awesome escape room (and to be honest, not even so tiny). It’s full of mysteries, illusions and fantasies that might remind you of one of the creepy movies, where you have to save a tangled small girl.
