When Does it Snow in Amsterdam

Wintertime in Amsterdam offers the ultimate Dutch ‘gezellig’ experience as you visit centuries-old cafes, pubs and neighborhood bars for some delicious Dutch treats like oliebollen: round doughnuts filled with raisins and powdered sugar. You won’t want to miss out on these unforgettable memories!

Ice skating is a popular activity during the winter months, and you can try your skills out at various rinks around town. Plus, winter markets provide plenty of chances to explore all around town!

Winter in Amsterdam is best experienced between November and February, when temperatures tend to be milder and the weather not too windy. At these times, lines at attractions such as Anne Frank House and museums will be shorter than during peak season.

Snowfall in Amsterdam is not unheard-of, but it is rare. On average, only 20 days out of the year experience snowfall here.

Prepare for winter weather by packing warm clothes and a coat. It’s also wise to bring an umbrella in case the rain becomes too intense. Additionally, good walking shoes are essential if you plan on visiting any major attractions in the city. Taking public transport such as tram or train may be easier and more convenient than using your own car or bike;
