Øldrikking og sykling er en dårlig kombinasjon, men i Amsterdam har man funnet en måte å kombinere øl og sykkel på, skriver Se og Hør.

The Beer Bike er en rullende sykkelbar der alle gjestene er med på å sykle, mens en styrmann – som naturligvis holder seg edru, holder rattet og sørger for riktig retning. Resten tråkker i vei og kan ta seg en øl eller to fra baren, mens doningen ruller gjennom Nederlands hovedstad.

Nederland lei av “cannabis-turister” – flere byer innfører turist-nekt på “hasj-kafeer”, men Amsterdam kjemper imot

Flere byer i Nederland er lei “cannabis-turister” og forbyr nå utenlandske besøkende å benytte seg av deres mange “coffee shops”, skriver VG.

Fra 1. april kan heller ikke utlendinger som besøker grensebyen Sittard-Geleen, ved grensen til Belgia og til Tyskland, lovlig røyke cannabis på byens designerte kafeer.

Borgermester Eberhard van der Laan i hovedstaden Amsterdam har foreløpig klart å hindre innføringen av loven i sin by, etter innføringen på nasjonalt nivå for tre år siden.

Det er 230 kafeer i Amsterdam som tilbyr ulike typer cannabis. Borgermesteren anslår at rundt en tredel av de syv millioner besøkende til Amsterdam besøker en av byens “coffee-shop´er”, ifølge Reuters. 

Eberhard Van der Laan mener et forbud kun vil føre til mer ulovlig salg på gaten, skriver VG.

Siden slutten av november har flyselskapet KLM testet ut roboten Spencer som flypassasjerenes beste venn på flyplassen Schiphol i Amsterdam. Spencer vet det meste, og kan spørres om all verdens ting – uten at det oppstår språkproblemer, skriver VG.

Etter to år med programmering og testing, planlegger KLM å sette Spencer i full drift i mars. Da vil den super-intellegente roboten gå 24-timers skift – blant annet for å hjelpe passasjerene å finne transfer-flygningen sin så raskt som mulig.

Robot-prosjektet støttes av EU-kommisjonen – mot at Spencer skal tjenestegjøre i Schengen-delen av flyplassen.

Som om det ikke var vilt nok fra før, har det 50 meter høye heisekranhotellet Faralda NDSM Crane Hotel (bildet) i Nederlands hovedstad Amsterdam begynt med såkalt “rope jump”, skriver Dagbladet.

“Rope jump” minner om strikkhopp, men i stedet for å bli dratt rett opp igjen etter det frie fallet, svinger du som en pendel opptil 90 meter fram og tilbake.

W Hotels Worldwide, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, on 25 October debuted in the Netherlands with the highly anticipated opening of W Amsterdam, www.rustourismnews.com reported.

Owned by Europe Hotels | Private Collection, the hotel brings the W brand’s distinctive New York energy, Whatever/Whenever service mentality and upbeat programming to the Dutch Capital.

Just steps away from the vibrant Dam Square and the Royal Palace, the hotel introduces Wet Deck, the city’s first rooftop pool, and electrifying culinary venues, such as The Duchess and Mr.Porter.

“The long awaited and much anticipated opening of W Amsterdam brings a distinctive new take on hospitality to the heart of the city,” said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader of W Hotels Worldwide.

“Amsterdam has emerged as a world leader in design, music and fashion, all of which have long been passions of W Hotels and our global travelers. As one of Europe’s most popular destinations, we are excited to welcome guests and locals alike to an energetic space full of unexpected moments.”

Located in the epicentre of Amsterdam’s vibrant social scene, the 238-room hotel spans two iconic buildings, one of which used to house the former Telephone Exchange and the other was previously home to KAS Bank.

W Amsterdam was designed by Office WINHOV and Baranowitz Kronenberg Architects, who collaborated with local designers to refresh the historic buildings with contemporary features inspired by their storied past.

Group Pestana will open a new hotel in Amsterdam. With this new hotel, the largest Portuguese hotel group adds another European capital, in addition to Lisbon, Barcelona, London and Berlin and consolidates its international footprint with 16 countries in its Portfolio, the www.rustourismnews.com website reports.

The future Pestana Amsterdam will be located in one of the city’s most noble areas over its main canal and the mythic Amstel Hotel. Less than half a mile away from Amsterdam’s famous museums and Congress Center, it will have easy access to its historical centre and its exciting night life. The new hotel is set to open in early 2016.

Located in Amsteldijk, the new five star hotel will honor the building’s ancient history but will be updated with two modern wings. The project was designed by a renowned team of Danish architects. This hotel represents another major step in recovery of heritage sites that Group Pestana has been implementing for more than 10 years.

With an investment of 35 million euros, the new hotel is perfect for both leisure and business. It will feature 157 rooms, including 32 suites, various meeting and venue halls, restaurant, bar, winter garden terrace in the historic patio, spa with indoor pool and gym.

The Group’s goal in the last 15 years has been international growth in Europe and South America, using a consistent strategy to promote the Pestana brand within the main hotel markets in the world.

Amsterdam is the 5th European city/capital in the Group’s portfolio, in addition to Lisbon, Barcelona, London and Berlin. Outside Europe, Group Pestana is the largest Portuguese hotel group with a presence in the US, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela, Cuba, Mozambique, South Africa, Morocco, Cape Verde and São Tomé and Principe.

The European Museum Forum has named  Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum the European Museum of the Year, the Architectural Digest – www.architecturaldigest.com blog writes. 

In 2013 the institution reopened to the public after undergoing a nearly decadelong overhaul headed by Cruz y Ortiz, architects based in Spain and the Netherlands.

As a finishing touch, a new space called the Philips Wing was added last year to accommodate temporary exhibitions, including the blockbuster “Late Rembrandt” that closed on May 17.

Close to 2.5 million people visited the Rijksmuseum in 2014 – a record for the institution, which also aided in the presentation of more than 160 exhibitions and programs in the Netherlands and abroad.
