Harry Potter in Amsterdam
On July 30th, Rupert Grint will be joined by co-stars James and Oliver Phelps (Weasley twins) to launch a Harry Potter photo exhibition on June 30th at the Rembrandtplein in Amsterdam!
The exhibition will feature a wide selection of exclusive and never-before-seen photos from the Harry Potter films. The exhibition will be on display until July 17 and fans can go see it for free!
The Uitmarkt (26 to 28 August in the cultural heart of Amsterdam) is the national opening of the cultural season and the largest cultural festival in the Netherlands. Over the years, the Uitmarkt has evolved into a festival attracting 500,000 visitors and featuring 2,000 performers at more than 30 venues. And it's all free!
This year, the Uitmarkt takes place at Museumplein, Leidseplein and the Vondelpark. Performances will be held at numerous theatres, museums and at venues near these three primary locations. A book market can be found on Museumplein and a world of information is available at stands en route between Leidseplein and Museumplein.

Inspired by a theme that changes every year, renowned soloists and ensembles form unexpected combinations to create a programme of concerts especially for the festival. Also previews will be presented of programmes that will be staged in the rest of the country later in the season. The Grachtenfestival provides a stage for young talent in particular. Part of the event is a 'Kindergrachtenfestival', which is the children's festival with productions for babies and toddlers to teenagers.
In 2011 the Grachtenfestival celebrates its 14th anniversary from 12 to 21 August in the city centre and along the IJ-banks of Amsterdam. Many concerts are free of charge or ask a small fee.
Amsterdam is located about 30 km from the sea, but we have no less than five urban beaches within the city.
