Winterly Amsterdam

During the holiday season, Amsterdam lives up to its picture-postcard image more than ever. The narrow, cobbled streets are festively decorated, the bridges glow with fairy lights and very occasionally the temperatures plunge so low that the canals freeze over. We love to give you some tips and hotspots where to go an what to see this winter.

Amsterdam Light Festival
Hop on board or go for a walk and get inspired by the light artworks along the way. During the eleventh edition the Amsterdam Light Festival will take you on a journey to the world of imagination. Get inspired by the twenty artworks against the backdrop of Amsterdam and Imagine Beyond.



Ice skating
When the temperature drops, the Dutch start dreaming of another frozen winter and the prospect of ice skating outdoors. Weather forecasts are watched eagerly and skates sharpened just in case! But even if the canals don’t freeze this year, there are plenty of spots in Amsterdam to practice your jumps and twirls. During the winter months, Rembrandtplein is decked out with snow cannons, chalets and twinkly lights, all surrounding a giant skating rink.

Christmas markets
Christmas markets provide the perfect opportunity to shop for one-of-a-kind gift, or simply to get your fill of speculaas and poffertjes. Beginning in late November, markets are held almost every weekend in neighbourhoods across the city.
