Amsterdam Weekly was a free English-language cultural paper from Amsterdam, published every Wednesday.
The paper offered mainly information about cultural topics and events like live concerts, theater, movies, gay and lesbian scene in and around Amsterdam. The paper used to be available at bookshops, cinemas, clubs, grocery stores, and restaurants and cafes, and could also be downloaded as a PDF from the website.
Amsterdam Weekly has been exhibited twice at the Design Museum in London, cited as one of 'the most inspiring design innovations to have been developed in Europe in the past two years', and has been awarded six European Newspaper Awards.

“The Jew is neither a newcomer nor an alien in this country or on this continent; his Americanism is as original and ancient as that of any race or people with the exception of the American Indian and other aborigines. He came in the caravels of Columbus, and he knocked at the gates of New Amsterdam only thirty-five years after the Pilgrim Fathers stepped ashore on Plymouth Rock.”
—Oscar Solomon Straus (18501926)
