It’s finally spring, and we’re moving on to summer, lot’s of sunny days ahead. It’s gonna be a great summer. Where can we better be than on a trendy terrace enjoying a cocktail or drinking a nice cold white beer and have tasty snacks? I like to share my favourite terraces with you. As you can see my favourite places are mainly on the waterside. Join and drink a nice cold Dutch Blond Beer with me?
Theehuis (teahouse) Rhijnauwen, Utrecht Little bit old-fashioned, but a tremendous cool spot beside the river “Kromme Rijn”. When you visit Theehuis Rhijnauwen make sure you eat the specialty of the house: Rhijnauwen wrap. Defenitely my favourite. Address: Rhijnauwenselaan 16, Bunnik www.theehuisrhijnauwen.nl
Volkshotel / Canvas, Amsterdam On the 7th floor there is a cosy terrace with a great view over Amsterdam.
Address: Wibautstraat 150, Amsterdam www.volkshotel.nl
Klein Berlijn, Utrecht A creative and cultural hot spot with a lovely terrace on the waterside. Located in an old industrial area at the river Vaartse Rijn. Small Berlin is a cool place to listen to music, to watch theater and dance on the music of trendy DJ’s. Innovation and talent predominate here. Have a German beer, a nice glass of wine or appetizer. The weekends you can dance to live music.
Address: Briljantlaan 5A, Utrecht www.kleinberlijn.de
Great place to relax in the sun beside the water, meet new people and eat a Surinam roti or a tasty peanut soup.
Address: Marnixstraat 246, Amsterdam www.waterkantamsterdam.nl
Stadsvilla Sonsbeek, Arnhem You find Stadsvilla Sonsbeek on top of the Hartjesberg ( Heartsmountain). The view makes it worthwhile to visit this terrace. The weekends there are often outdoor concert. In the park you’ll find more terraces. What I like best is to take a blanket and just sit in the grass enjoy the sun, watch the people and get into the happening. www.stadsvillasonsbeek.nl / www.sonsbeekfestival.nl
Address: Park Sonsbeek, Zijpendaalseweg, Arnhem
Hanneke’s boom, Amsterdam Lovely terrace, great view, nice food and drinks. Lots of events are organized here. A great place to lert the day linger away. I just love Hanneke’s boom.
Address: Dijksgracht 4, Amsterdam www.hannekesboom.nl
De oude Waag, Hoorn Popular terrace on the big square in the center of Hoorn.
Address: Roode Steen 8, Hoorn.
Say it in Steel
My one and only nr 1 top terrace. Located on one of the nicest spots of Amsterdam with a beautiful view over the IJ. If you visit Amsterdam an absolute must, so make sure to put it on your bucketlist. Not only the outside is special but the design inside is more than creative. Ask the cook for the day specialties.
NDSM Plein 102, Amsterdam
