Amsterdam is certainly a city where money seems like it doesn't go far, and high-priced bars and sleek, fashionable clubs are really not hard to find. With that being said, one of my favourite things about the city is that there is also so many amazing free things to do in Amsterdam as well! It is true that many of the museums in Amsterdam cost nothing to go inside, but what I love most about the city is that the streets are almost exhibitions in themselves. There is history and culture everywhere in the city, and so much of it is completely free to view, you just need to know where to look! I'll be showing you some of the best free activities Amsterdam has to offer, such as festivals, events, as well as some of my personal favourite hidden gems that you have to go and experience for yourself. I was a student in the city for three years, so I know how to have a great time whilst spending nothing at all. So, if you're tight on money, read on to discover some of my best free things to do in Amsterdam.
