Karen, our finance lady at Conscious Hotels, gives you a BBQ tip!
“Looking for the ultimate summer activity, like Amsterdammers do after work or in the weekend? Go for a BBQ in the park.”
Buy some meat, fish, veggies, potatoes, (anything you like to be grilled) at a supermarket and go to the park. There are several parks in Amsterdam, but closest to both our hotels is the Vondelpark. On a sunny day or evening you will find lots of people grilling.
“When you see a group is done with their grill, and they are thinking about putting it out, just ask if you can put your stuff on it! Surely they will let you, sharing is caring, and especially if you thought of bringing some ice-cream in exchange :) ”
If this idea sounds a bit too unconventional to you, you could also go to Westerpark, where there are communal grills for everyone to use! Remember to bring coals for best results.
