10 o'clock

October (the earlier the better). Amsterdam has a classic maritime climate and fall and winter can be quite dreary (grey, cloudy and rainy), but you can get some surprisingly nice days, but don't count on it...

eleven o'clock and early in October unless you like winter activities.

Yes, October is probably the best idea. I once went for a short break in late November and it was bitterly cold. Not at all pleasant for wandering around even when wrapped up warmly.

Thanks for all your answers.

Is there any festival or something that I shouldn't miss in October?

Thanks!

I second October (still the warmest, but we never can guarantee dry weather).

No National events in that months; that's more for mid-November when the Duth St. Nick (Sinterklaas arrives). The Sinterklaas day is celebrated at December 5.

CANALS.

Many of Amsterdam's canals were filled in around the start of the 20th century, mainly for sanitary reasons. The remaining waterways are still pretty filthy, but there's nothing like seeing Amsterdam by boat - just keep your eyes up and don't trail your eating hand wistfully in the water. Amsterdam becomes even more picturesque from a duck's perspective: the houses look impossibly higgledy-piggedly, leaning, looming and jostling on both sides of the canal; bridges arch over the water, some of them opening for tall water traffic.
There are numerous tourist boats doing the rounds, and it's also possible to rent a pedal boat, if you're feeling energetic. Of course, if the canals freeze over in winter, the boats get stuck and there's skating to be had. Amsterdam frozen over is a wonderful place: the locals dust off their ice skates, children and dogs scramble around, and vendors sell hot chocolate, glühwein and soup. Watch out for thin spots in the ice, especially under bridges and at the edges: people die under the ice every year.

Take a canal tour, a long one. Pick it when the light is the right one, like a sunny late afternoon: beautiful! Pick it also once when it's dark. You'll be jeallous like hell how people live in those old cosy flats by the canal...
When I took the canal boat it was very entertaining guides telling about the city and also gossiping about the amsterdamers.

History 4 - Not the capitol and yet the capitol

by Pavlik_NL

In the Netherlands there’s a construction that not many foreigners understand. The government is situated in The Hague, but the capitol is Amsterdam. Well, this is a historical grown thing as indeed the governemental capitol was (and is still) The Hague. However, Amsterdam’s importance grew much faster then that of The Hague and at one moment it was just one of the most important places in the world, yet – no capitol! During French occupation (Napoleontic wars) the brother of the French conqueror decided that his residence was going to be Amsterdam and he made it into the “Batavian Republic’s” capitol. After being liberated from the “sansculots” the government started ruling again from The Hague, but the returned king choose also for the palace in Amsterdam as house. Later the “residence” became in a row “Apeldoorn”, “Soestdijk” and now again “The Hague”. Well, now you understand the strange situation in NL.

Jewish Historical Museum

At the heart of the former Jewish quarter of Amsterdam stands the Jewish
Historical Museum. Opposite the museum is the 17th century Portuguese
Synagogue, still in use. In front of this stands the statue of the Dockworker,
symbol of the protest strike against the persecution of the Jews, held in
February 1941.
The Jewish Historical museum is famous both nationally and internationally. This wasof the Jewish history and culture. Often the themes have an international tone: we have shown the work of Chagall, told about the Sephardi diaspora, presented the story of the Jews of Russia etc..
