One of the most iconic parts of any trip to Amsterdam is smoking cannabis. Many visitors to the Netherlands try out the variety of smoking activities on offer. Whether you’re a regular smoker or you want to try it out while on holiday, there are plenty of options for all adults.
If you’re planning a trip to the Netherlands and want to try out some of the best and most unique smoking activities, here are five of the most recommended.
1. Smokeboat Tours
These tours take place during the day and at night. Unlike regular cruises around the canals of Amsterdam, the smokeboat tours allow you to smoke while on board.
With cosy blankets and pillows available for guests, this is a great activity for all weathers and all times of the day or night. Drinks and snacks are normally on offer to accompany your time smoking on the boat.
2. Visit a Coffeeshop
Many tourists to the Netherlands might feel their visit is incomplete without a trip to the famous coffeeshops of Amsterdam.
With almost every street and corner housing a different coffeeshop, Amsterdam is the perfect place to go to indulge in this pastime. You can spend your days hanging out in the many coffeeshops in and around the city – smoking some of the most popular strains and forms of cannabis, such as moon rock hash and gorilla glue.
3. Cannabis and Hemp Museums
The Netherlands has more than one museum dedicated to marijuana and hemp.
The Hash Marijuana and Hemp Museum is the world’s oldest museum of this kind and is located in Amsterdam. It attracts thousands of tourists every year. While you won’t be able to smoke inside this venue, you can learn a lot about the history of cannabis and its uses around the world.
The Cannabis Museum Amsterdam is another popular choice of museum to visit in the Netherlands. A range of exhibitions and informative activities will educate you all about the history and uses of cannabis down the ages.
4. Take a Stroll Through Vondelpark
With an estimated 10 million visitors every year, Vondelpark has been one of the most popular parks in the Netherlands for more than 150 years.
Situated within a short distance of the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam city centre, Vondelpark is the perfect place to relax by yourself or with friends after visiting one of the coffeeshops nearby.
Smoking in public places isn’t allowed in Amsterdam, but there are many coffeeshops to choose from in the areas surrounding Vondelpark.
5. Enjoy the Night Life
The vast array of night clubs in Amsterdam means there is always something new to try out. Clubs such as Club Smokey have large smoking areas as well as places for non-smokers to relax. This can be the perfect night-time activity for mixed groups of friends visiting Amsterdam.
Fans of smoking won’t run out of places to visit and coffeeshops to enjoy when visiting the Netherlands. The centre of Amsterdam offers fantastic night life, beautiful parks, and plenty of unique smoking activities.
