Have you ever experienced feelings of frustration when interesting activities are organised only for Dutch speakers? Have you been in the Netherlands for a short or even a longer period but are still curious to know more about its culture, famous places and the Dutch people?

Volksuniversiteit Amsterdam – a courses centre with an impressive experience of more than 100 years in organising lectures, workshops, walks, and guided tours – has launched a special selection of English-language activities dedicated to expats in order to fill the gap in the market. Among other things, as a specialist in various Dutch courses for non-Dutch residents, Volksuniversiteit Amsterdam welcomes hundreds of expats every year, and has noted many of their preferences and wishes.

Due to their care, passion and expertise, they have developed a selection of accesible, interesting and usefull activities for expats on 14 March:


Amsterdam Canal District

1. Amsterdam Canal District: a talk about the ins and outs of the famous UNESCO World Heritage site.







Amsterdam Plantage district

2. A guided walk through the Amsterdam Plantage district.








Dutch architecture

3. A century of Dutch architecture: trends, famous architects and imposing Dutch buldings from the last 100 years.








This diverse and attractive programme gives you a choice of activities to enjoy with friends or family, on an informative and relaxing day out.

Save the date in your agenda: Saturday, 14 March – your key to a wider world of knowledge, culture and creativity. See Volksuniversiteit Amsterdam for more information.
