From 29 November to 1 December, Union Members are invited to explore the Host City of the 1928 Olympic Games. “Once an Olympic City, always an Olympic City” is the Union’s motto, and Amsterdam fully embodies this. The Olympic Stadium remains in use and is at the heart of the City’s sport policies. Beyond this emblematic venue, the City itself is a stadium: it provides an iconic background for highly successful sports events. The events, in their turn, bring mesmerizing inspiration to the ‘Amsterdammers’; to each and everyone.
With a living Olympic heritage which encompasses canals, cycle paths, parks, and high-level sports facilities, alike, Amsterdam does everything to promote and welcome sport in all its dimensions and for all audiences. It is a vibrant sports city, which knows how to use its environment to offer its inhabitants and visitors a wide range of year-round physical and sporting activities. Amsterdam is the first ever Summer Olympic City Member of the Union to host the additional trip. Warm thanks go to the Municipality of Amsterdam for welcoming the Union.
