skating

In Amsterdam, there’s three kinds of skating: Inline skating, best done in Vondelpark with its wide asphalt paths or on the Friday Night Skate, skateboarding (there are outdoor skateparks at Museumplein, Olympiaplein and Eerste Marnixplantsoen) and, in winter, there’s the traditional, even archetypal way of Amsterdam skating: ice skating. When the temperatures dip, the Dutch start dreaming of a frozen winter. But even if the canals don’t freeze, there are plenty of spots in Amsterdam to practice your jumps and twirls.
