Guide to public transport in Amsterdam.
For most tourists, day- or multiple day tickets are the best deal. They entitle you to unlimited travel through Amsterdam – day and night – by tram, bus and metro. Ferries across the river IJ are always free.
Note: all buses, trams and metros are cash-free. Buy your Public Transport Day- or Multiple Day Passes online right here.
The good news for Amsterdam is that May often is the sunniest month of the year, with on average up to 15 hours of sunshine a day.
The bad news is that the weather is as fickle as Dutch weather can be.
Forecast for the last week of May: Lots of sun, no rain, and pleasantly warm.
In terms of weather, June is a good month to visit Amsterdam.
Lots of sun and blue skies, with the usual clouds and/or (brief) rain showers every now and then.
April weather in Amsterdam is a study in contrasts. It can be sunny and warm one day, only to look and feel like a fall day the next. Don’t believe us? Just keep checking our Amsterdam weather forecast for April 2020 throughout the month.
March in Amsterdam is characterized by erratic weather. But the old joke that Holland has four seasons a day is more likely to make sense in March than in any other month.

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. Often this is the month that ice skating is possible. That did not (and will not) happen in February 2020. The last week will be cold and wet, though still mild for the time of the year.
