29 Photogenic Reasons to Visit Amsterdam in Autumn

There are plenty of reasons to visit Amsterdam aside from how good-looking it is. The waffles and beer are top notch, their museum game is the strongest for miles around and their standard of living is quite literally unbelievable. They always say it’s what’s on the inside that matters. The substance over style. But it does help when you have both… right?

My visit to Amsterdam was in November, which meant a LOT of grey skies. It’s that awkward not-quite-winter-not-quite-autumn. The leaves had almost all fallen, but it wasn’t cold enough for snow. But you know what? Amsterdam still pulled through for an amateur like me. So here are 25 of the BEST reasons to visit Amsterdam, and hopefully this will prove you that any time is a good time to visit Amsterdam.
