Christmas Markets in Amsterdam

Christmas Markets in Amsterdam

The Amsterdam Christmas market is not at one location but at several locations in Amsterdam. Besides shopping, many Christmas markets also offer many other (winter) activities. Go ice-skating on an (indoor) ice-skating rink, take a ride on a Ferris wheel or enjoy the most delicious food and drinks at one of the cosy food stalls. With all extra activities young and old enjoy the unique Christmas atmosphere in one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Besides the large Christmas markets, which can often be visited for several weeks, there are also small Christmas markets that are often only held for one or two days.

After 2 years, the Christmas markets in Amsterdam may finally be held again. Of course, this will be celebrated in a big way. Below, we’ve listed all of Amsterdam’s Christmas markets for you. Including location, admission prices and an overview of all the activities you can do at the Christmas market.
