What to do in Amsterdam on your stag weekend

It's the stag weekend city where anything goes and is one of our very popular European destinations. You guys must have a great love for architecture and canals because we can't think what else would attract you to go. It wouldn't be the smoking cafes and the ladies in the windows, not to mention an unrivalled party night life with those crazy Dutch people would it? Whatever it is, you guys keep going there so here we give you our run down of the best things to see and do on a stag weekend in Amsterdam.

Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein


These areas ("plein" means square) are very much for tourists, but if you're only there for a weekend and your main aim is to wander from pub to pub and get in amongst the hustle and bustle of the city then these are probably the main areas you're going to stick to. Good pubs and clubs can be found off the Leidseplein.

Hit the canals


Amsterdam is famous for its canals and its definitely worth touring them on your stag weekend. We'll organise you a riverboat tour of Amsterdam on its fantastic waterways. Oh, and did we mention that it's unlimited booze whilst you're on board and the boat drops you off at a fantastic Dutch bar at the end? Now that's what being on a canal boat should be like.

Beer Bike Party


This is a fantastically unique experience for our Amsterdam stags. Get a group of you together and enjoy the beer bike experience. Imagine you're very own huge cycling bar because that's what this is. They usually fit anywhere between 10 and 20 of you and it really is the perfect way to see the city by bike.

Red Light District


It just wouldn't be a stag weekend to Amsterdam without the red light district. If you've never been before be prepared to stare and double take as you pass some stunning women (and stunning... not so women) standing in the windows trying to tempt you in. Whether you're going there to get your end away or not, it's definitely worth a look.

Smoking Cafes


Whether you're into it or not, these are probably worth a look in as well. They're not hard to spot, they're usually well, smoky and everyone looks ever so slightly tired inside. Remember to keep an eye on anyone who's not used to this though because you could lose a stag group member or two who end up sleeping for the rest of the weekend. Not good.

Sex museum


If you've got a spare half an hour and fancy a bit of naughty culture have a stroll down to the sex museum. It's pretty cheap and well worth a look in.

Beer Crawl / Experience


Amsterdam is also famous for its beer, particularly Heineken which is the main brewery in the area. The Heineken experience takes you through their old brewery which is now a museum to all things Heineken.
