How right he was, since almost all the activities for lovers in Amsterdam are very expensive. Get out your wallet or your purse because here are a few Amsterdam things to do for lovers.
Things To Do In Amsterdam Such As Heaven in Amsterdam
Blue Heaven is a restaurant on the 23rd floor of the Hotel Okura in Amsterdam. It’s French name, and the one you want to look up, is Ciel Bleu, and it is fantastic. It is a two Michelin star restaurant, which means your bill (for two) is probably going to be in the treble digits. You can try a few drinks in the cocktail bar if you don’t fancy a meal. The view from up high is brilliant and the food, despite its small portions, will keep you full all day.
Buy her flowers at the flower market
The flower market (Bloemenmarkt) offers you a great chance to buy flowers for your loved one. It is a nice thought, though most women will want to get them in water within minutes, which will probably mean going back to the hotel. To be honest, it is better to look than by, but the thought is nice.
Amsterdam things to do such as a canal cruise
You can walk around the city, or rent bikes and bicycle around the city. You can also hire a canal boat and go boating around the town on your own. You can have a cruise boat take you around, or you can go for the cheaper option and take a group boat or canal bus. It gives you another way of seeing Amsterdam.
Five-star Hotels in Amsterdam

Hugging your beloved in an Amsterdam Park

Tour Amsterdam by Horse and Carriage
