Peak season:

Netherland’s cosmopolitan capital has much to offer tourists with its picturesque canals, 17th century architecture and wide range of art museums. Travellers who book cheap flights to Amsterdam will discover a long list of historical and cultural attractions, so if you’re tight on time narrowing it down can be difficult. First time visitors will want to include the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Anne Frank’s House for starters. Many people book flight tickets to Amsterdam for its laid­back and liberal approach to life, which is reflected in its eclectic cafe culture and nightclubs, suffice to say, go with an open mind! Peak season in Amsterdam is concentrated on the summer months of July and August when the weather is warmer, reaching temps around the low 20Cs if you’re lucky. It pays to bear in mind the city’s weather can be temperamental and summer isn’t a guarantee of sunshine but it is more likely. Tulip season is also a popular time to book flights to Amsterdam and this runs from mid­-March to mid-­May. The flowers blanket the city and surrounding fields and the Keukenhof Gardens in particular become very busy. Make your arrangements for flight tickets and accommodation well in advance if you’re visiting at this time as large numbers of tourists flock to the city to view this colourful natural attraction.


Off season:

Winters are cold in Amsterdam getting down to 3C or 4C in January and February but wrap up warmly as there’s still plenty going on. If you’re there when the canals freeze, you can join Amsterdam’s residents on skates which is a lovely way to see the city. The best benefits of travel at this time are the cheapest flights to Amsterdam and discounted hotel rates. You’ll also spend less time queuing, no elbow jostling in front of famous paintings and less crowded cafes.

When is the best time to book a flight to Amsterdam?

There’s no bad time to book a flight to Amsterdam, but for cheaper flight tickets and fewer crowds any time outside peak season is favourable.

Many cultural events are scheduled from September through June, such as the Jordaan Festival (late September) and Museum Night (November), and Christmas is a popular time for tourists to take flights to Amsterdam to experience the festivity of the city.
