January in Amsterdam

No reviews, be the first!

If you can handle the cold, January is one of the best times of the year to visit Amsterdam. This is the time of year you’ll find the fewest tourists on the narrow streets and many of the 1,200-odd bridges criss-crossing the 160 or so canals are festooned with lights to counter the dark winter months.

Amsterdam is the seventh most visited European city with around 16 million visitors per year so if you can head there at its least crowded time you’ll be that much closer to the famous paintings in the fabulous museums and easily find a table in the cafes, locally known as brown cafes for the aged-color of their walls.
