With the good weather coming, it's always the same - like everyone else I want to be outside in the sun. But I would also like my weekly fix of culture without having to be cooped up in a museum or darkened room while the sun is shining outdoors.

Right in the middle of Vondelpark

I'm looking forward to the Openluchttheater open-air theatre. Right in the middle of Vondelpark, this theatre is much like a bandstand but on a larger scale. The covered stage in the form of an Egyptian goddess and the stands demonstrate quite how successful this concept is.

Free of charge, every weekend

The theatre is open every weekend with a varied programme. I really enjoy the dance performances on Friday evenings and concerts on Sunday afternoons. They remind me of grand classical concerts. On Saturdays, the stage is filled with groups of young people putting on drama productions or hip-hop improvisations.

I prefer to go when the weather is good, without looking at the programme, I think it's an excellent opportunity to surprise yourself and discover new talent. Entrance is free but it's best to arrive a little early to be sure to get a seat. If the programme is popular, it is also possible to reserve a seat for €2.50. Times:
Friday: 20:30
Saturday: 14:00, 16:00, 20:30
Sunday: 12:00, 15:00

I spend a lot of time in front of the computer, but I prefer to be followed on a bicycle than on Twitter. I love Amsterdam for...its little streets, riches, treasures and all of the spots where you can get a really good beer. Follow the guide! My little extra: discovering nature
