Amsterdam is beautiful and interesting any time of the day or year — in sunshine, rain, or snow. In general it has a mild climate, but at times the joke that says you can experience four seasons a day here almost seems true.

It’s hard to say what the weather in Amsterdam is going to be like, but we try anyway. We provide weekly weather forecasts, along with month to month details on what you can expect (and what to wear).

Make sure you visit the Amsterdam Weather homepage.

Amsterdam weather in September

Often September in Holland has many days of summer-like weather.

This is a good month in which to visit Amsterdam. But mind you: as always, the weather here is rather changeable. You could just as easily encounter (much) wind and rain.

Amsterdam Weather in July

Amsterdam’s July weather can be precarious: it’s the warmest month of the year, but you can also encounter wet and cool days (or weeks, even). Right now we’ve been having a long hot (and dry) spell. Spell? It’s been dry nearly six weeks now. And we’re having ‘Code Orange’ heatwave weather.

Amsterdam weather in May

The good news is that May in Holland often is the sunniest month of the year, with on average up to 15 hours of sunshine a day.

However, this month tends to have as many cold days as it has warm days — and there can even still be night frost, especially during the first half of the month.

Mind you, weather pros say that May 2018 may well end up being the warmest in 300 years!

Amsterdam weather in February

Normally February is the coldest month throughout the Netherlands, and the coldest time of the year to spend in Amsterdam.

But it’s also one of the driest months, and there are quite a few sunny days. That said, there is a slight chance that ice skating on the canals of Amsterdam will be possible this winter.
