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 12:30 at the Scheepvaart museum moving towards Amstel which is very nearby the Albus, from there taking the Prinsengracht towards Westerdok (near the Central Station).

Make sure you book your hotel via this website early, check out the Gay Pride Package availability.

The Albus is situated in the centre of all activities, Amsterdam will have street parties all weekend long and the best club circuit parties.
