Biennial & Quinquennial Events & Festivals in Amsterdam

Some events and festivals only come to Amsterdam once in the two or once in the five years. These biennial and quinquennial events should not be missed when you visit Amsterdam at the right time. Or maybe we should say that these events could be a perfect reason for you to get planning and visit Amsterdam (again).
Go to the details & reviews page of Sail Amsterdam Sail Amsterdam is a nautical event - or better said spectacle - that is being held every five years. Sail starts with a huge Sail In, when an impressive fleet of tall ships from all over the world arrive over the river IJ. Millions of people come to Amsterdam to see the tall ships arrive in Amsterdam, accompanied by thousands of smaller (private) boats. During Sail you can visit some of the tall ships and see how it is like (to life) on such a vessel.

Keep an eye on the website of Sail Amsterdam for the latest news.
