Visit to a beer brewery

Wednesday the 8th of October


De Prael, Oudezijds Voorburgwal 30


Are you over the whole excitement about Heineken beers? Are you interested in learning about beer brewing and in tasting unfamiliar beers? Join us on our visit to the De Prael, a traditional brewery located in the city center. Get an impression of De Prael on this website. We will get a guided tour where interesting facts will be presented about beers, beer brewing and Amsterdams rich beer culture. And last but not least, it wouldn’t be a proper beer brewery tour without you tasting the beer produced by De Prael! A ticket for this event costs 16,50 and includes 4 beer tastings. Get yours soon at our office, or online. Find the Facebook event here.

Amsterdam Dance Event

15-19th of October

All over the city

If you’re interested in electronic music, the timing of your exchange is pretty lucky. The Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) is the leading electronic music platform and the biggest club festival in the world (If you’re a electronic music nut, I assume that you’ve already heard about it). From Wednesday the 15th till Sunday the 19th of October, the ADE features 800 events, 2000 respected DJ’s in over 80 clubs in Amsterdam. Many parties are sold out already but if you’re quick, you can get tickets! Check the program and buy tickets on the ADE website. Enjoy the party!


ISN Student Language Exchange

This Facebook group is set up for people who would like to learn a foreign language in an informal way. By posting in this group, you can offer knowledge about your own language in exchange for the language you're interested in. This can be anything, such as Dutch, Spanish, Arabic or Japanese etcetera. You can help each other with learning other languages. Perhaps you'll even end up with valuable acquaintances in the country of your interest. Find the Facebook group here.


Oktoberfest Borrel
Wednesday the 8th of October
Coco's Outback

This special edition of the Borrel will be Oktoberfest themed. This is a perfect opportunity for everybody who missed the actual trip to Munich, but still wants to experience our Eastern neighbors' beer festival for a little bit. It's also a perfect opportunity for the ones that want to relive their visit to Munich. Either way, you're in for a great night: lederhosen, dirndls, beers (1 liter of beer and a shot for only €8) and a beer related competition (with awesome prices). You can sign up for the competition in Coco's at 23:30. More information will follow soon on Facebook.


Exchange Party: Halloween

Friday the 31th of October


You might have just recovered from the Opening Party (find photos here). However, we would like to inform you that the next Exchange Party is coming up. And this one is going to be even better, for two reasons. Firstly, it's going to be a Halloween themed party, which means that dressing up in crazy, sexy or scary outfits is mandatory. Secondly, this party will be favored with a visit from the international students from ESN Belgium. The tickets are not up for sale yet, but keep the date in mind! Keep an eye on our Facebook page and newsletter to find out when you can get tickets!


Student of the Week: Aparna Attawar

This week’s student of the week is of Indian descent but has spent most of her life living ‘down under’. The Australian vibe still shows in her laidback attitude and cheerful disposition. Aparna took charge of the barbecue at the coach-organized barbecue in Vondelpark (see picture) and has brightened up our Borrels with her dazzlingly white smile. The decisive factor in her becoming student of the week, however, is the fact that she named her bike ‘Hans’, a very traditional Dutch name. Cute fact: she starts speaking with a British accent when she gets nervous. We wish you and Hans all the best in Amsterdam for the duration of your stay here, Aparna!
