The best time to visit Amsterdam is
during the spring or autumn. During the summer the city is really
crowded and exhaust fumes pollute the air. However, the Vondelpark
offers fresh air and some cooling. The climate of Amsterdam is
strongly influenced by the water from the IJ. This is because water
has the tendency to warm up and cool down very slowly. The same effect
can be noticed in the vicinity of the water. This explains why
temperatures in Amsterdam are the exact average of the Netherlands. If
