Things to do at night in Amsterdam

A day in Amsterdam does not stop when the museums close. There is plenty to do at night, too.

Koninklijk Theater Carré is marvelous. Popular national and international artists consider it an honor to perform here. Schouwburg van Amsterdam on Leidseplein square also offers a range of impressive shows.

You can go to the movies at Tuschinski, for instance. The old art deco and Jugendstil building does not only attract movie fans but architecture lovers, as well.

You can enjoy music at several places in the city. If you are near Museumplein, visit the Concertgebouw. If you are in the vicinity of Amsterdam Central Station, go to Muziekgebouw aan het IJ and Bimhuis.

If you want to explore great cafes, you can go of course go on a pub crawl or go to Leidseplein.
