An Amsterdam winter wonderland

Taking place next to the ice rink at Museumplein, this festive village transforms the iconic square into a magical festive wonderland. The festive atmosphere is completed by Christmas markets, live entertainment and an abundance of traditional Dutch Christmas food and drinks – all set against the stunning backdrop of the Rijksmuseum. You can also enjoy a leisurely skate on the ice rink, or – if you're feeling a little more adventurous – you can take part in fun games such as human bowling on the ice. The markets include fashion, lifestyle products and interior decorations, so there really is something for people of all ages at the Christmas Village on Ice.
