Going to the movies in Amsterdam when it is raining does not sound like such a bad idea, especially if you go to The Netherlands oldest operating cinema that has been up in operating since the year 1912. This is a perfect place to go and watch a movie.
No one wants to try on clothes in the wet. However, there are some shops that you can shop in that will keep you dry – look around the department store on Dam Square.
