Every year in August Amsterdam is filled with the sounds of classical music and jazz which are heard everywhere – in the streets, in the parks and even on the boats floating on the canals.
The main venue of the Grachtenfestival (eng. Canals festival) is in the open air with the 17th century architecture background. The festival involves both novice musicians and the famous maestro.
You can listen to music while walking along the canals, boating on water or just sitting in a nearby cafe with a cup of coffee.
