canal ice skating

It has been all over the news the past week. After waiting for a few days, some dare devils were spotted on the ice yesterday. This was the key for all ice skating enthusiasts to go canal ice skating in Amsterdam. If you’re in the city today, make sure to step on the ice yourself. For everyone who isn’t able to see the frozen canals theirselves today, here are ten pictures to enjoy the fun from behind your screen.

The ice will be pretty crowded today.

Such an idyllic view!
