Drop in at ‘Café Amsterdam’ for three nights of debates, interviews, movies and music, with well-known and up-and-coming authors and musicians.

Attend an interview about family ties with novelist Toine Heijmans and listen in to a conversation between Gábor Csordás and Frank Westerman about idealism and utopias. Enjoy the music of brilliant singer-songwriter Dyzack, and see for yourself what Dutch professor Douwe Draaisma has to say about your memory – plus many more exciting events! Take note of the dates and come along to feel the characteristic vibe of an Amsterdam café in Budapest.
