Watch Star Wars: Rogue One in an Amsterdam cinema

The newest addition to the Star Wars series has been released and you can now watch it lots of cinemas all across Amsterdam and in all of the Netherlands.

Star Wars fans have been waiting for Rogue One to be released for a long time, at least since the arrival of the last Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens.

If you do not know much about Star Wars than watching this movie might be a brilliant way to start your relationship with the Star Wars series. If you have seen a whole lot of Star Wars movies earlier, then this is a brilliant movie that will make your knowledge of the Star Wars series even greater.

And to make everything even better, make sure to visit Netflix as well while in the Netherlands. A common consequence of watching this movie is that you will long to watch Star Wars: A New Hope later (that is the first Star Wars movie in chronological order dealing with year of creation, but looking at the story it is the 4th in the Star Wars series).


Watch Star Wars: Rogue One on a cinema in Amsterdam

Now Rogue One has arrived to cinemas in Amsterdam and if one would try to place this movie in the historical order then this could be counted as Star Wars 3 1/2 as the story is coming in just between the third and the fourth movie. And guess what? Since you are located in the Netherlands you can visit and watch Star Wars: A New Hope and all the other Star Wars movies on Netflix (including The Force Awakens).

What are you waiting for? Go and find a cinema somewhere in Amsterdam, watch Star Wars: Rogue One, and then go home to your hotel-room afterwards to visit and watch all the other Star Wars movies as well!

Have a great time in Amsterdam and enjoy watching Star Wars: Rogue One.

Depeche Mode concert in Amsterdam in 2017

On May 7th it is time for an amazing concert event in Amsterdam. Depeche Mode will perform in Ziggo Dome and you can buy your Depeche Mode tickets if you want to be there.

Depeche Mode is a British band formed in the start of the 1980s. Since then they have not really lost popularity, but it is rather increasing. It is a fact that the most visited concerts in Budapest throughout history actually has been several of the Depeche Mode concerts in the city, and the same is true for several other cities. While most artists perform in smaller venues, Depeche Mode do their concerts outdoor at the giant stadiums. That is why it is a little surprising that Depeche Mode will perform in the Ziggo Dome while in Amsterdam and not at the Amsterdam Arena.

There is however a reason for this and the reason is that Ajax Amsterdam will play against Go Ahead Eagles on Amsterdam Arena only a few hours before the Depeche Mode concert (on the same day). As a result it would be impossible to get all the preparations for the concert in order, and thus Depeche Mode will have to perform in the much smaller Ziggo Dome instead.

In addition to the Depeche Mode concert in Amsterdam the band will also perform in cities such as Paris, Prague, Bratislava, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Berlin.

Now you can shop from in Dutch

By a coincidence we recently bumped into the news that (German Amazon) is now also available in Dutch. If you prefer shopping in the German Amazon Store, but still in Dutch, then you can do so now.

It was in the following article that we read about how you can visit in both English and Dutch. This is brilliant in many ways. Since Germany has a population near to 80,000,000 people there are lots of people there who do not speak German, or at least before their home languages to German. That has been fixed by recently as they have added support for both the English and the Dutch language. In that way you can read more about the different products in both Dutch and English, and you can get instructions on shopping and much more in your own language.

What should you buy on Amazon if you do so? And why shop from the German Amazon store instead of the Dutch Amazon store? If you live in the Netherlands you should probably by from your local Amazon Store. But, there might be some products that you can not get access to in the Dutch Amazon Store, which you however can buy in the German store. If that is so, then this will come really useful for you. Then you can also forward your packages from Germany to the Netherlands easily (if that is needed as does not send all sorts of deliveries to other countries), and in a few minutes from now you can have ordered your first package from in Dutch and get it sent to your home address in the Netherlands.

We have not tried this ourselves yet, but it seems to work very well, so go ahead and visit the German Amazon store in Dutch to give it a try.

Is it cheaper on than on

The products available in both stores normally run with the same prices. But, if you visit you will simply suffer, as there are so few products available. You can not buy lots of Amazon products (like Fire Tablets, Amazon Echo), you can not buy the most modern cell phones (Samsung Galaxy S7) and so much more. And that is why you will want to visit in Dutch and shop from there instead.

What do you think? Will you try to shop from in Dutch?

Netherlands with a tough World Cup qualification ahead

Most people in the Netherlands had a nice summer and a long holiday. Since they did not even participate in Euro 2016 people could do something else. But, it can’t happen that Holland will not qualify for two big tournaments in a row.

But, it won’t necessarily be easy to get to the World Cup 2018 which is to be organized in Russia. On the paper group A in which Netherlands will play is among the toughest of them all. Together with them in group A we can find the runners-up from the Euro 2016 final France. That is for sure among the best teams in Europe, so not easy at all. Then we have Sweden, a nation for which Zlatan Ibrahimovic has said he won’t be playing anymore. That is of course good news for the Netherlands, but Sweden can be a tough nut to crack still.

Besides Sweden and France the Netherlands will also play against Belarus, Bulgaria and Luxembourg. Bulgaria is not an easy opponent, while Luxembourg is a team that the Netherlands should be able to beat easily. Belarus should be beaten, but on a bad day Belarus can surprise as well.

When will the Netherlands play?

The first match for Holland will be played on September 6th against Sweden (in Sweden). Then in October they will get the chance to play against Luxembourg and France. The first match will be played on October 7th against Belarus at De Kuip in Rotterdam, and on October 10th against France at Amsterdam Arena.

If you will come to Amsterdam to watch the match against France, do not forget to visit the beautiful attractions of the city as well while in town.

If you want to watch the different qualification matches online, then you can find lots of information and news related to this at
