October - November

The summer months in the Netherlands are fairly cool with average temperatures ranging from 68 °F to mid 70`s °F. However, nothing is less predictable than the weather, so it is very likely that we will have colder, cloudy and rainy days during the summer as well or very hot days. This is the rainiest period of the year, so the 6-7 hour solar day is often `diluted` by precipitation. At sunset the air is very cold, and this happens rapidly.

The summer months are also considered peak tourist season, especially in July and August. At these times, hotels might be hard to find, and lines can wrap endlessly around popular attractions like the Anne Frank House and the Van Gogh Museum. On the upside, cycling is at its best in the summer months, as is the sunny sidewalk café scene.

Events and Festivals

- Heritage Day, locally known as Open Monumentendag, takes place every year around mid-September, and give tourists and locals the unique opportunity to explore behind the scenes of 4,000 historical buildings and homes throughout the Netherlands.
