InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Amsterdam

Hello to all Americans in Amsterdam! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Amsterdam? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Amsterdam which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Amsterdam is a beautiful and diverse city to live in. The Dutch capital is a highly diverse city known for its canals, world-famous museums, historical sights, and much more! With the cycling lanes, metros, buses, trams, ferries, and trains, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in Haarlem or Leiden, for example, which are a 10-minute and 30-minute train ride away from Amsterdam’s center.

Although Amsterdam has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Amsterdam, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
