QO Amsterdam Ambassador Favorites

Out and about in Amsterdam – April

Our Amsterdam Ambassadors like to share their love and knowledge of the city with you. Offering you insights in things to do, places to visit and people to meet.

We take great pride in curating a list of events each month. When cultivating our list of “Amsterdam Favourites for the Month” we are always on the lookout for that off the beaten track, which in turn opens up a different and inspirational side of Amsterdam to you.

Therefore we connect you to the city and help shape your experience.

Imagine Festival


  1. to form or have a mental picture or idea of something;
  2. to believe that something is probably true;
  3. to think that something exists or is true, although in fact it is not real or true.

Imagine is paradise for aficionados and connoisseurs alike, “Together with the audience and professionals, we examine the relationship between the legacy of fantastic film and current developments in society.”

So start forming that mental picture of yourself watching the best in science fiction, fantasy and horror at Eye Filmmuseum during Imagine Festival.

Happy Bday King Willem-Alexander!

In Amsterdam-Oost a neighbourhood came together and started Bredewegfestival – the annual Kingsday Festival. Bredewegfestival is a very unique way of celebration since its one of the few places in Amsterdam where Kingsday is organized by and for the neighborhood.

All characteristics of a traditional Kingsday are found: music, art, theatre, food, drinks and most importantly a FLEAMARKET.

If you are interested in celebrating Kingsday in a more local setting this is the place to go!

Bredewegfestival 2019

Date: 27 April 2019

Venue: Amsterdam Oost

Location: Bredeweg, Amsterdam

Admission: Free (and bring cash for the fleamarket)
