Ice skating on Dam Square

Amsterdam in wintertime means bike riding along nearly frozen canals, endless coffee drinking in Vondelpark with your friends, and taking in the beautiful views of Amsterdam covered with Christmas lights.

To add to all this winter wonder fun, the city of Amsterdam has placed an ice rink on the middle of Dam square. Surrounded by tons of wooden chalets, winter snacks, a large crib and of course a Christmas tree, Dam Square is the place to be to get caught up in the X-mas spirit.

You can bring your own ice skates, or rent them at the spot. The ice rink will be present until January 8, and will be closed on 30 and 31st of December.
