Amsterdam weather in February

Normally February is the coldest month throughout the Netherlands, and the coldest time of the year to spend in Amsterdam.

But it’s also one of the driest months, and there are quite a few sunny days. Often this is the month that ice skating is possible. However, the rather mild — and at time even spring-like — weather pattern we’ve been enjoying continues.
