Amsterdam at Christmas | Ashleigh Travels

With the festive season fast approaching, here’s a glimpse of what Amsterdam has to offer at Christmas

Ashleigh Woods was in the Netherland’s capital, known for its artistic heritage, elaborate canal system and narrow houses with gable facades – legacies of the city’s 17th century Golden Age, this time last year.

Amsterdam gears up for the festive season with Sinterklaas, Christmas and New Year’s Eve – the taste of chocolate letters, pepernoten and speculaas on the tongues of children, mulled wine on the tongues of the older kids, a rosy glow in the cheeks of everyone and plenty of Christmas markets, holiday concerts, plays and performances for all.
