When to take the ferry to Amsterdam?

The best time to visit the Netherlands is generally in summer, from June to August. During this period, temperatures are pleasant, fluctuating between 20 and 25 degrees Celsius. The days are longer, which means more time to explore the beautiful Dutch cities, national parks and tulip fields. The temperatures are ideal for cycling along the canals, strolling through the bustling streets of Amsterdam or enjoying the summer activities organised throughout the country.

On the other hand, the worst time to travel in the Netherlands is winter, from December to February. Temperatures are cold, sometimes dropping below zero. It often rains and the days are short, which can limit the opportunities for outdoor visits. However, if you like the atmosphere of winter and Christmas markets, this is a good time to visit. Dutch cities are decked out in festive lights and decorations, creating a warm and friendly atmosphere.
