At the end of August, Amsterdam hosted its largest three-day cultural festival, the Uitmarkt, presenting it’s finest music, art, theatre, dance, opera, literature and skateboarding. For many travelers, you’ll spend a fair amount of time soaking in the city’s scenic canals and cityscapes while enjoying some of the best food and suds your taste buds have ever absorbed.
