Bachelor Party in Amsterdam: 4 Fun Ideas for a Memorable Experience
The bachelor party is, for many, an essential ritual before the wedding in order to get wild with their best friends once again before the most beautiful day of their lives. The custom originates in ancient Greece, where the friends of the Spartans organised a party shortly before their weddings, where they got the last opportunity to celebrate exuberantly.
Are you engaged and planning your bachelor party? Or you are the best man, responsible for the planning and looking for inspiration for lively activities for the best bachelor party in Amsterdam?
We’ve got you covered and have put together a selection of four memorable activities in Amsterdam – after all, being based in Amsterdam, we’re the experts.
When the weather is good, the city is blooming and comes to life but even if it’s cloudy or raining outside, the city has a lot to offer. Amsterdammers usually spend their time outdoors, regardless the weather.
1. Canal Cruise with Cheese Tasting
A boat tour on the canals of Amsterdam is always a must – so why not also include it on this beautiful occasion?
With the group boat tour of Amsterdam with cheese tasting, you combine two Dutch specialities. With room for up to 15 people, you’re sure to get all your friends in. The captain includes 15 stops on tour, you’ll learn a lot about Amsterdam, discover secret spots, and try Amsterdam’s culinary specialities.
Getting to know the city better from the water is the perfect prelude to a great bachelor party. From here, head towards De Pijp, where you can quench your thirst.
2. Heineken Experience
Heineken is probably the most famous beer in the Netherlands and one of the most famous beers in the world. As luck would have it, the brewery is in the middle of Amsterdam!
Your bachelor party is just the right occasion for the Heineken Experience.
On this tour, you can learn all about brewing beer and even design your own beer bottles with your names. The highlight of the experience, however, is the beer tasting, where you can enjoy two ice-cold beers each.
After the Heineken Experience, we recommend you stop by one of the many bars and restaurants around the corner at Marie Heinekenplein. Our favourites are the Vegan Junk Food Bar or Bar de Tulp. Here you can fortify yourself with great food and unwind a bit before heading out for the next activity of the day.
3. Walk Through the Red Light District
Amsterdam has many highlights. The most notorious of them is probably the red light district De Wallen, located in the city centre. At first sight, not directly recognisable, the side streets, especially at night, become a mysterious place of pleasure.
The tour starts at Amsterdam Centraal, the city’s central train station. From there, you make your way to the red light district. Your tour of the Red Light District will be accompanied by an interactive adventure to catch a mysterious murderer. While exploring the small alleys, you’ll look for clues and thus for the solution to the mystery.
Through this tour, you’ll playfully get to know the area, pass by many sights, and learn about the history of prostitution in Amsterdam, whose origins go back several hundred years.
After this independent tour, you will know the city centre like the back of your hand.
4. Tickets for Amsterdam’s Nightlife
To end your evening with a proper celebration and dance the night away, we have another highlight for you – the Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket.
You get access to more than 30 bars and nightclubs as well as a free bottle of champagne in one of the locations. In addition, 9 of the 30 clubs also welcome you with shots, so it definitely won’t be boring.
If bar hopping is fun for you, we recommend you visit as many places as possible. But even if you decide to stay in one of the bars or clubs, the offer is worth it in any case, because in Amsterdam the parties are legendary.
You see, Amsterdam has a lot more to offer besides great culture and countless museums, and is the perfect place for your bachelor party. At Activitygift, you can browse through more special activities and plan a spectacular bachelor party.
