A week in Amsterdam will be an enriching experience for the participants of the World Gymnaestrada.

As the best way to get around Amsterdam is by public and sustainable modes of transport, the participants will be given the opportunity to make optimal use of these.
In addition to the numerous cultural highlights in Amsterdam, music and dance will also play an important role in the entertainment programme. Specially for the participants, DJs will be playing at large parties with various themes (80s, 90s & current themes) that run parallel to the history of the World Gymnaestrada.
