Winter Season 2014

Winter in Amsterdam. As the winter cold decents on the city, Amsterdam prepares for warm and fun-packed holiday season. Besides the annual celebrations of Sinterklaas, Christmas and New Years Eve there are dance and movie festivals suchs as Dancing On the Edge and International Documentary Film Festival (IDFA) as well as cultural and fashion events such as Winterparade, Amsterdam Fashion Week and the Cannabis Cup.

Cannabis City

Every week thousands come to the Netherlands to enjoy a society where cannabis is available to anyone over 18 years of age, and able to identify themselves. Many, coming by car from Belgium, France and Germany, head from the country’s border straight for the nearest town with a Coffeeshop. Starting 2012 this situation has changed, leaving Amsterdam the No.1 visiting city for Cannabis tourism in the world.

Christmas E-mail

ChristmasChristmas - The Dutch celebrate two days of Christmas: Eerste Kerstdag (the first day of Christmas) on the 25th of December and Tweede Kerstdag (Boxing day) on the 26th. For visitors to the city, who are more used to the Anglo-American Christmas held on the 24th and 25th of December, there is still plenty of  fun left to be had. If you find yourself in the city this Christmas, the following are a few suggestions to help you pass the time and incorporate a little Dutch culture into your holidays.

Museumplein is turned into a Christmas Square every year, boasting a market and craft-making displays  perfect for passing an afternoon. There is also an ice rink which is open well into the evening. Christmas lights have been up since November, and an evening  stroll in any direction from the brightly-illuminated tree in Dam Square can prove a pleasant one, especially through the Leidseplein and its  surrounding area or towards the Jordaan, which is full of cosy cafes and unique shops.
