Amsterdam isn't all bicycles, art galleries, canals and coffee shops. Find out why this provocative city is seductive in its novel, magnetic appeal.
The city of red lights, hedonistic nights and chilled out days – Amsterdam’s where we send hens who want to get away from it, relax, and then when the sun sets party like there’s no tomorrow! From the canals to the bike lanes, it’s a city packed with culture and an endless amount of things for hens to see, do and experience.
Amsterdam hen do's also get to run around in an adult's playground, with pretty much everything going in this most liberal of cities. Its reputation for naughtiness is not just for the men as our hens enjoy plenty of mischievous nights in the Dutch capital. If you are looking for something that might embarrass the bride or perhaps do something you wouldn't get away with then a hen do in Amsterdam is the perfect time to try it. What happens in Amsterdam stays in Amsterdam!
Just an hour's flight from the UK is Amsterdam, a tailor-made destination for a hen weekend to remember. An Amsterdam hen do is packing a lot more than coffee shops, bicycles and canals. This is a city you can really get lost in... y'know spiritually and that. A smaller city to negotiate on foot than most imagine, Amsterdam's sights, smells and sounds mark it out as a unique and colourful hen party location.

If there’s one thing synonymous with Amsterdam it’s the Red Light District. If there are two things synonymous with Amsterdam it’s the Red Light District and ‘café culture’. But if there are three things synonymous with Amsterdam it’s the Red Light District and ‘café culture’ and bikes. There are an estimated 800,000 bikes in Amsterdam, and the city is designed with this in mind. From special bike lanes to routes entirely for cyclists, Amsterdam is about as cycle as you can get in a European city. And it’s also a great way to see the city and take in the views. Just make sure you are fit enough as tired legs are more likely to power you into the canals if you're not concentrating. Cycling under the influence is also a definite no no!
If the thought of peddling everywhere is too much for you and your fellow hens then you can still get where you need to go with those trusty four-wheeled vehicles we call cars. You can either hail taxis once you are there or if you have specific activities at certain times Hen Heaven can organise transfers for you.
Another benefit of the canals is how easy they make it to get around the city centre. This is the Amsterdam that most people see. Six circles of the canals contain most of the major tourist destinations, and it’s a safe bet that if you haven’t crossed a canal in a while you might accidentally have wandered in the wrong direction.
If you want to get your Amsterdam hen party headed in the right direction there really is something for everyone. There’s museums aplenty from the Rembrant or Van Gogh Museum for the real arty types through to museums about porn, sex and cannabis. So whichever suits your style!
It’s worth mentioning that these museums do get very busy in the summer months, so if the sun’s out you may be better off heading to one of Amsterdam’s many parks. Each district has at least one, such as Vondelpark in the south. Notable for its friendly atmosphere and the plethora of nearby bars it’s perfect for soaking up some rays.
Whether you’re all about café culture, or you’re a tried and tested party animal Amsterdam’s got the nightlife for you. The city is one of Europe's biggest party towns and people come from all over the world just to party here. From quirky venues like the former church Paradiso to a whole range of mega-venues catering to all music tastes. Dance music is a big deal in Holland and the clubs of Amsterdam have been the breeding ground for many of EDM's biggest names. On your hen weekend, you can experience these DJ's firsthand and you might be dancing to the next superstar.
Amsterdam also has a healthy alternative culture with plenty of bands making the city its first stop on European tours. The bars of the city has a huge variety and you can choose whichever matches your taste either for a drink or a dance. If you want to hear yourself talk then like every good European city, Amsterdam boasts amazing cafes in quiet areas away from the loud music where you can enjoy each others company and more importantly here each other talk!
In terms of refreshment, the Netherlands is world famous for its beer and thanks to Amsterdam's party scene the cocktails here are just as good. There are also plenty of 'alternatives' options if you don't like to drink...
The canals of Amsterdam are obviously famous across the world, and a tour of these amazing waterways is a must do for a weekend in the city.
