Event Calendar November – What’s on in Amsterdam
A new month, which also means a lot of exciting events and exhibitions taking place and now presented to you in the new Event Calendar of November.
The holidays get closer and closer. The leaves will slowly fall of the trees and it’s getting colder each day. But there are plenty of festivities that make this cold month a bit more cosy and fun!
Ice skating at Museum Square (18 November – 4 February 2018)
I guess this is the most famous ice-skating rink of Europe. If you want the real Dutch experience try ice skating yourself and end the day with a cup of hot chocolate. You can hire the skates at one of the stands if you don’t have them at home!
Surrounding the beautiful rink you can find the Ice* Brasserie for something to eat and drink.
