Visit this historic city in the winter when there are fewer tourists and to see it as a winter wonderland. Some of the famed canals freeze in the cold weather, making them a popular place for the favorite Dutch activity of ice skating. Between November and January, check out the Amsterdam Light Festival. Or visit at winter market in the weeks leading up to Christmas for some hearty food and mulled wine. The best part of visiting Amsterdam in the winter is there are less people trying to visit popular places like the Anne Frank House, the Rijksmuseum or the Van Gogh Museum. And if you happen to be in the city towards the end of November, look out for the Sinterklaas Parade where Santa Claus makes his presence known. Renting a vehicle with 4-wheel-drive and winter tires is a good idea in the colder months.
