No reviews, be the first!

The Netherlands springs to life in December, holding traditional Christmas markets in many towns against a backdrop of prettily illuminated gabled houses, canals, lavishly decorated Christmas trees and rousing carol concerts.

1)  Amsterdam

In the weeks before Christmas, food stalls fill Leidseplein and Koningsplein while Museumplein is transformed into Amsterdam’s biggest Christmas market, with jewelry stalls plus craft-making displays and an ice rink. The Funky Christmas Market at Westergasfabriek in Westerpark, from December 22nd – 23rd is packed with tree decorations, gift ideas and eclectic food stalls. The Amsterdam Light Festival takes place over Christmas along the Amstel.
