Amsterdam
Rainy day in Amsterdam
Welcome to The Netherlands, where rain is our second skin and cosy indoor activities are plentiful in Amsterdam. You just need to know what's up. And that's what this is about:
 
Tip number one: Take precautions against water! There is nothing worse than being a wet tourist. Get a poncho and/or an umbrella from our shop and take on the city like a brave local: on a bike. 
 
Morning 
You know that feeling after breakfast, you get out the door of the hotel and an hour later it’s time for that 2nd coffee of the morning. Make it one at Lot Sixty One Coffee Roasters! In the neighbourhood of Conscious Hotel Vondelpark, here you will find one of the best cups of coffee in the city. (Although we admit that every, even very bad coffee will taste like the best cup of black gold, after a stormy bikeride in the rain.)
 
Museums
Every city has their fair share of museums and Amsterdam is no exception. When its plummeting down, rather than walking around the famous Jordaan area you can check it out from the safety of the indoors at the "Museum of the Canals". The district is recreated in small scale version with interesting insights of what the historic houses look like, also from the inside. Great for the nosey ones amongst us.
 
Another option is to hide in the famous Rijksmuseum bicycle tunnel and enjoy daily live classical music, for free!
 
Lunch time
So while you are close to the Rijksmuseum and the belly is rumbling head over to Buffet van Odette. Serving a delicious menu from their biological locally sourced buffet! By Odette. Daily specials are on offer; think creamy burrata smoked mackerel steak sandwich or salad from the buffet. Mouthwatering, isn't it? (The Buffet, not Odette).
 
Boat tour
Rain or shine, Amsterdam is best seen by boat and luckily KIN boats have a closed roof option. A personalised boat tour in a solar powered boat, even when it's raining. What are you waiting for? Ask your Conscious host to book a tour.
 
Beers from Amsterdam
So after all the activities its surely time for a drink (to not travel too far in the rain let’s keep it central:) For a true local experience, take a seat in one of Amsterdam’s cafes such as Café Fonteyn at the Nieuwmarkt square, or Café De Engelbewaarder at Kloverniersburgwal. Grab an organic local beer, from Two Chefs Brewing or Brouwerij 't IJ, and watch the rain falling down from inside. After a few beers, you can handle any rain. Go get them!
