Concert on the Canal

Tonight is the highlight of the grachtenfestival (canalfestival) with a concert on a pontoon outside the Pulitzer hotel on the Prinsengracht.

Sponsors get seats on the Pontoon, but Amsterdammers line the canal and pontoon with small boats and also line up along the canal – it’s a great event and fun to go along and listen.

I took this photo on Friday morning before anyone had a chance to park their boat.

  1. Hi! I’m an expat living in the Netherlands! It’s great to stumble across your site! 🙂

    I’m also looking to find if any expats know ANYTHING about where I could potentially find a club to play soccer for in the Haarlem/Amsterdam area… any ideas, even on where to search?!

    I look forward to visiting your blog again!

  2. Hi Jaime,

    I’m not the world’s biggest soccer fan, but I did find a couple of clubs listed on expatica

    Otherwise try their discussion forum, someone else might know.
