Why Celebrate in Amsterdam?

Amsterdam is the place to go with the lads for a weekend where you take complete mayhem to the next level.

Amsterdam is known as the city of sin which is why it attracts so many stags who are up to no good, or just the stags who are up for a good time. And trust us when we say there is a lot more to an Amsterdam stag do than the red lights and the coffee shops although we’re sure you will be spending some time in both. This city actually has so many different things to visit and is a great place to go if you’re after making some amazing memories.

But let’s be honest, people go to Amsterdam to experience everything, the top class beer, world renowned strip shows and the legal highs in the corner coffee shops. No matter what you lads are in to these Amsterdam stag do ideas are a great way to give the groom a send-off that he will never forget!
