Amsterdam in Autumn

For the next weeks, streets, parks and canals will be covered in golden and brown and green and red and orange and yel­low col­ors of the fall­ing leaves, with the sun shin­ing ever so bright and cups of hot chocol­ate between our hands to warm our fin­gers and ideally, no more rain. It seems as if the best thing about the whole year is that light that shines in autumn, warm, soft and powdery light for which you won’t need sunshades. What's on our top 10 list of tips to do in Amsterdam in autumn time?
