Celebrating Christmas in Amsterdam

By Sasha, December 2012

No reviews, be the first!

Christmas preparations kick off in mid-November in Amsterdam, when the streets are adorned with Christmas lights and store windows decorated with festive scenes. On the third weekend in November, Sinterklaas and his helpers arrive in The Netherlands and sail down the Amstel River before parading through Amsterdam’s streets to check on the behavior of the city’s youngsters.

In early December food stalls fill Leidseplein and Koningsplein, while Museumplein is transformed into Amsterdam’s biggest Christmas market and ice rinks appear all over the city.
