Amsterdam Winterparade at RAI
The holiday season it getting closer and closer. Winter is back in Amsterdam with a special first Winterparade in the RAI. For 12 days, young and old will experience why December is the most beautiful month of the year.
From Thursday 21 December, the RAI will be turned into Winterparade Amsterdam: The place to experience the absolute Christmas feeling. The Amsterdam Winterparade will have 700 square meters of Ice skating fun. At the RAI you can hire your skates but the skating rank is for free when you bring your own skates! Don’t forget the special events that will take place on the ice, like the special silent disco and the curling matches. Not so much into ice skating? Than take a trip down memory lane and step onto the ferris wheel to have an amazing view over the entire event!
It would not be a true Winterparade without an indoor and outdoor Christmas market. Get your last minute Christmas gifts and warm yourself up with a cup of hot chocolate or treat yourself to some Dutch donuts or mini pancakes. Baut, Brasserie van Dam and Restaurant Blauw will be present with a pop-up restaurant next to the skating rink. Of course a Christmas market would not be a Christmas market without some mulled wine next to open wood fire. Don’t forget to roast your marshmallows!
This cold winter wonderland does not only have a Christmas market, an ice skating rink and a ferris wheel, it also has a special winter wellness including a sauna and hot steaming jacuzzis! In the early afternoon, when it getting a bit darker the Beer Village will open his doors. A giant winter party with the best dj’s and live musicians is taking place at the Winterparade.
