Amsterdam in Winter

Filed under: General,Links — Ivan Herman @ 17:48

The past few days were quite unique in Amsterdam (and the Netherlands in general). It was dry and cold. But this is the Netherlands, which means that in winter the air is always a bit humid; the result is that white frost covered all the trees (and vegetation in general) all around the country. Yesterday it was misty, too, which added to the very special atmosphere; but today it was also sunny, with beautiful blue sky.

The result was quite amazing and beautiful. The scenery (eg, in one of the big parks of Amsterdam called Beatrixpark where we walked around today) was really like from a Christmas postcard!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Beatrixpark, Amsterdam



  1. Wonderful photo (and the other photos you posted on flickr are also exquisite) !

  2. Thank you… but it was easy. The view was just stunning.

    B.t.w., it is all gone by now. The weather has just changed back to the normal, gray and misty Dutch winter:-(

  3. I was still new to Amsterdam when it snowed, only lasted less than a day though.. 😦

    I was playing with my brother in the front of our house, and people were looking at us with the face Are-they-insane.. I didnt care, at least I had fun..

    I also live near BeatrixPark, I dont even need to cross any road, my house is VERY near to the park… ^^
