Amsterdam Gay Pride

28th July - 5th August

Amsterdam Gay Pride is a huge celebration of devotion towards equality for the gay, lesbian and transgender communities, held in the last week of July and first week of August every year.

Amsterdam’s famous liberal-mindedness over the years has encouraged a welcoming and safe environment for gays, lesbians and transgenders.

The Canal Parade is the highlight of the Amsterdam Gay Pride weekend! 80 decorated boats sail along the Prinsengracht. The parade starts at 13:30 at Westerdok (near the Central Station) and the route follows Prinsengracht and the Amstel which is very nearby the Albus.

Make sure you book your hotel via this website early! Amsterdam will have street parties all weekend long, the best club circuit parties and of course the famous Canal Parade on Saturday.

The Albus is situated in the centre of all activities.
