General Information

Amsterdam has a moderate, maritime climate largely infl uenced by the North Sea and other surrounding waterways. Water holds temperature longer than land; it heats and cools more slowly. In watery Amsterdam, this means the crisp, rejuvenating spring and cool, breezy autumn can linger for months, as warm summer air and cold winter chills arrive quite gradually. Average temperatures are 17°C (62.6°F) in mid-summer (July) and 3°C (37.4°F) in mid- winter (January). Rainfall occurs an average of 120 days annually and is spread evenly throughout the year.
