Snow in Amsterdam almost always happens every year. This year it happened right before Christmas, and with Christmas lights in the streets it definitely offered a picture perfect view.
Home Sweet Home
While we travel the world in search of incredible places, I’m always happy to be home and can’t imagine living anywhere else. I love walking and every time I meander through this city I call home, I imagine how lovely it must be for tourists seeing it for the first time.
The Four Seasons
Spring is great in Amsterdam; with the elm trees lining the canals and the sun soaking into the cobbled streets and squares. Summer is arguably the best time to check out (and check into) Amsterdam. As you might know, The Netherlands is used to a drop of rain or two. And yes, it rains a lot here. But Summers are usually less sodden and sipping on a wine on one of the terraces in the Vondelpark is the perfect way to while away an afternoon. I absolutely love Amsterdam in Autumn, too. Think rustic leaves, ethereal light and – if you’re lucky – that much-needed final glimmer of sun.
Snow in Amsterdam
But, actually… Winter is my all time favourite season here in the city, especially when the streets are transformed into a winter wonderland where skating on the canals is the norm and children selling hot chocolate on the ice is a given. Ok, we’ve only been able to skate on those canals once (and we’ve lived here for over 20 years), but the snow in Amsterdam almost always happens every year. This year it happened right before Christmas, and with Christmas lights in the streets it definitely offered a picture perfect view.
Who knows, we might be lucky enough to enjoy a second round of snow this winter. I can’t wait!
