For the terraces in Amsterdam are the most expensive in the Netherlands, according to the annual terrace study by hospitality consultancy firm Van Spronsen & Partners. This year Zwolle came out the cheapest terrace city for the first time. 

Researchers visited terraces in the 21 largest cities in the Netherlands and ordered a round - a coffee, two sodas, two beers and two glasses of rosé. In Amsterdam they paid an average of 24 euros and 25 cents per round, an increase of 2.8 percent compared to 2016. That Amsterdam is most expensive is not surprising, according to the researchers. The Dutch capital's real estate and rental prices are much higher than in the rest of the country.

In Zwolle a round cost exactly 21 euros, 2.4 percent more than last year. Nationwide the price of a round on a terrace increased by 2.2 percent to 22.10 euros. 

Nijmegen, which was the cheapest terrace city between 2011 and 2014, saw the biggest price increase over the past year. There the price of a round increased by 8.4 percent to 22.25 euros - higher than the national average. Nijmegen is now 9th on the list of most expensive terrace cities. Almere (17th place) and The Hague (2nd place) also saw above average price increases with 4.9 percent and 4.3 percent respectively.
