Hey there, currently in the process of planning a few days away with some friends for my 21st, and everyone would quite like to go to Amsterdam. I was just wondering if people would still recommend we go in the depths of winter (sometime between 26th and 30th of december) Im assuming there will still be plenty to do, it will just be rather cold with short days etc.

And more in general, if people have any hotel recommendations, days out etc


Thanks

Craig

I went on a short break there a few weeks ago, and I wouldn't imagine it being any less of an experience in winter as it would be in summer. The weather was largely as you would expect in England, maybe slightly warmer.

However on the dates you're looking at, I doubt everything would be open during the Christmas period?

I live in Holland so....YES GOOO! Definitely, in winter it will be uber cold but that's fine, there is ice skating everywhere and bikes, and the red light district and concerts and everything, I would say there is MORE to offer in the winter

A good point regarding things being open.

Hmmm well, Holland does tend to completely shut down on religious days, so I would imagine it would take a couple of days to get going again but then after that It would be fine, if your there for New Years there is this thing called the New Years Dive where everyone jumps into the ocean (North Sea) at 12 noon, done it before it was FREEZING! but veryyyyy fun
