Take the Amsterdam Light Festival for example.
Amsterdam Light Festival
There is no better way to celebrate Christmas in Amsterdam than cruising the beautiful canals.

You can choose between 3 different departing points, so there is always one that is most convenient for you and your travel companions.
Conquer the cold
But taking a cruise is not the only thing you can do during your Christmas in Amsterdam. A visit to the Ice Bar is also a real wintery experience. Have a drink between the ice sculptures and relive the story of explorer Willem Barentsz. Even if Amsterdam isn’t all that cold during the winter, the Ice Bar certainly is. You will leave Amsterdam knowing that you really experienced the winter. Amsterdam is a fantastic destination to celebrate Christmas. So don’t wait any longer and book your tickets now!
