The best time to visit weather wise is from mid April to mid October. July and August are the peak months for visitors, when the weather`s at its finest. The weather overall is never severely cold or hot as the temperatures are influenced by the North Sea (the Netherlands has a maritime climate). If you favor off-season travel, you`ll find the country every bit as attractive during these months. Not only are hotels and restaurants cheaper and less crowded, but some very appealing events also take place.

Peak tourist season in the Netherlands runs from April to August and mid-December to early January. What should be remembered is that although the weather is at its best during these months (April - August), the museums especially are extremely busy. If Keukenhof or tulips are a consideration, the time to visit the Netherlands is from mid-April to mid-May when the bulb fields are in full color. No matter when you decide to visit, prepare for rainy weather. Even summer days can be grey and wet, so always bring a coat and umbrella. Overall, there is no worst time to visit Amsterdam; the city truly provides year-round entertainment. Here is an overview of the Netherlands in all four seasons that will help you make a decision on the best time of year for you to visit.
