The largest Christmas market in Amsterdam is the one next to the skating rink on Museumplein. The Ice*Village is known for the wonderful combination of skating and shopping in a magical winter landscape. In 2023, the market can be visited from Wednesday 13 December to Tuesday 26 December.

Unfortunately, the City of Amsterdam has decided not to allow a skating rink on Museumplein in 2023. Ice Amsterdam will therefore unfortunately NOT take place this year. Fortunately, the Christmas market on Museumplein will go ahead. Stay up to date with all the news about Winter Festival Amsterdam. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and TikTok.
