Sorted by popularity:

What's the Weather like in Amsterdam in July

July is one of the two hottest months of the year in Amsterdam and as a result is generally very crowded with tourists. 

Temperature

The highest temperature ever recorded in July was 32°C (90°F) with the coldest being 12°C (55°F). However, this is atypical and the average high temperature for the month is 21°C (69°F) with an average low temperature of 13°C (55°F), an increase on June's temperatures.

Notice there is not a lot of difference between the low and high temperatures thanks to the moderating effect of the nearby warm sea waters. In the month of July, visitors will only need a light jacket at night.

Average Sea Temperature

In fact, the waters off the coast continue to get warmer with temperatures near 17°C making water sports possible as Amsterdam gets deeper into the summer months.

Average Sunshine Hours

With about ten hours of sun per day, there is also plenty of time to get outdoors and enjoy the warmer and longer days.

Rainfall

It does rain at times in July, however, it tends to be light. On average, rainfall amounts for the month are between 63mm. Taking a light jacket should be enough to ward off any raindrops on a vacation in Amsterdam during July but checking the weather forecast is a good idea.

Amsterdam Hotels in July

In the summer months, visitors may want to stay in a region of Amsterdam that is close to outdoor activities such as the zoo. If this is the case, then the region of Jodenbuurt is a good choice.
