At Tiqets, we work hard every day to deliver awesome cultural experiences and activities to people all around the world. Every now and then though, we like to let our hair down and savor some of that culture for ourselves too. Whether it’s taking the time to test out some of our top products, enjoying an exclusive breakfast and private access to the Rijksmuseum, or carving up Austrian ski slopes, we have a pretty refined idea of fun! Needless to say, when it came time to celebrate the summer in Amsterdam, Tiqets did it in style.

Summer vibes on cruise-control 

In Amsterdam, you’re never far away from the water. Which is a good thing, because no summer party ever really feels complete without kicking it off on a boat. So, off we marched from our head office to the nearby Amstel River. We filed into two large barges and set sail on a boozy cruise around the city’s fabled canal ring. Of course, as seen below, not everyone was satisfied with their initial selection of boat (you know who you are, Jonathan!).

Private party in the north

After cruising around the pretty canals, sipping beers and gushing over the city’s gingerbread architecture (seriously, it never gets old!), we sailed across the IJ, the giant canal that separates Amsterdam city centre from the northern side of the city. The north of Amsterdam is a different world altogether. The Golden Age architecture makes way for an industrial landscape complete with hip, edgy bars fashioned out of shipping containers that come complete with their own private beachfront terraces. Now you’re talking! 

Bubbly, beer, and beatboxing!

The night dropped a gear with a bubbly reception at our beachfront destination. One energetic motivational speech later from our CEO Luuc (complete with an impressive beatboxing display!), and we were set loose upon the open bar. We then put our cultural knowledge to the test with a table quiz of trivia lifted directly from our products. Giant Jenga, a finger-licking barbecue buffet, and an electrifying silent disco kept us partying long into the night. Bring on summer 2019!
