Good Time To Visit Amsterdam

In terms of weather, June is a good month in which to visit Amsterdam.

Overall, you can expect quite a bit of sunshine, with lots of blue skies and a normal average temperature of 15° Celsius (59° Fahrenheit) — and daytime highs of 19-20° Celcius (66.2-68° Fahrenheit).

Mind you, the Dutch grew up with this more of less standard weather forecast for this time of the year: In the morning sunshine and here and there’ some rain; in the afternoon sunshine with now and then a shower. (A brilliant forecast, right?)

Fortunately, the rain showers tend to be short and scattered.

As for the sunny part, it is rare that you see a completely blue sky, because the sun often must compete with — for the most part — cumulus clouds.

What to wear in Amsterdam in June

What you’ll want to pack for a June vacation in Amsterdam: short sleeved tops or summer dresses, short skirts, shorts, or light slacks

For the most past it’s shorts and T-shirts weather — or, as the case may be, skirts and tops or summer dresses. Short sleeves!

Jeans, light slacks, or — if you tend to be on the cold side — light sweats are fine, too, especially at night.

As always you should plan for a mix of weather: lots of sunshine interspersed with (brief) showers and/or overcast days.

Don’t go overboard with the rain gear. The weather is mild, even when it rains and/or is overcast. If thundershowers are in the forecast it can be muggy as well.

You’ll just have to play it by ear. If it looks like it’s going to rain for quite some time, visit a museum and/or catch a movie. If only showers are expected, enjoy the outdoors and pop into a pub, coffeeshop (or coffee house) or an eatery for a while.

Photo Tip

When it’s sunny and the skies are blue, you can take fantastic, postcard-like photos in Amsterdam.

Just remember: your pictures will have the bluest skies when you shoot them while standing with your back turned toward the sun. Otherwise the sky tends to come out white and washed out.

You’ll want to use a lens hood on your camera as well.
