Festive Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a truly multi-cultural city where you can find food and drink from all over the world, so whatever you're looking for you'll be spoilt for choice. At Christmas time, the city is lit up with festive decorations in the cobbled streets and canal ways, making the already-pretty city into a winter wonderland.

Christmas shopping in Amsterdam

As you can well imagine from a capital city, Amsterdam is well-stocked for shops. In terms of sheer variety, the Dutch capital has it all, from huge international department stores to vintage, antique and boutique gift shopping.

There are also market stalls which pop up around the city, particularly on Leidseplein and Koningsplein, for you to explore as you warm up with a gluhwein or take a spin on the ice-rink.
