Amsterdam is known for its famous mode of transportation, the bicycles. There is one more ride that is even more fun and interesting to ride. That is the beer bike. Thanks to the Dutch inventor, Zwier van Laar who brought this Wheel God to the world in 1971. It has definitely made the world a better place.
Fueled by nearly 20-30 liters of beer that is housed in a central chamber, 10-20 riders (based on the size of the bike) peddle the bike through the streets of Amsterdam. Each bike will be accompanied by a sober bartender or a BOB - Bewust Onbeschonken Bestuurder (which translates to designated driver - one who abstains from alcohol deliberately).
A group of friends on a single beer bike ride around Amsterdam smelling of beer, is the coolest thing to do for your bachelor party.
Have a blast at bubble football
Bubble football or Zorb football as it is called is the latest craze in Amsterdam and is worth all the hype! The upper body is covered in a zorb suit which is actually a transparent ball, more like a bubble wrap and the lower body is free to kick the football with your boots on. Even imagining it with your friends dressed up in this suit will make you go crazy and long for it to happen.
Go on, call your best buds and kick some balls! You can use the help of Amsterdam Bubble football to book your game. It has got both indoor and outdoor stadiums.
Coffee is beckoning

There's no perfect time to have a good coffee and coffee shops in Amsterdam have a totally different definition, it is time to get high. The coffee shops you find in Amsterdam are totally different from the regular cafes you find elsewhere. From soft drugs to ice creams to milkshakes you get a plenty of good stuff there. Anything but coffee.
Outrun the nasty street dealer who's been following you for more than 2 days now and go for coffee shops that are authorized to sell soft drugs. Trust me, you and your friends will have a quality time getting high which is, of course, legal.
Strip away your blues
A bachelorette party without a strip club? How mad are you! It would be a sin if you skip this and get married straight away. Now, don't be scared, the Almighty has blessed Amsterdam with a plenty of strip clubs to wipe you off this sin of yours and steady your bachelor party back on course.

And if you go beyond your limits then better blame yourselves and not us. There, we have said it! Nevertheless, make a special place in your Google calendar for this is one of the must do things in Amsterdam.
