Amsterdam is beautiful and interesting any time of the day or year — in sunshine, rain, or snow. In general it has a mild climate, but at times the joke that says you can experience four seasons a day here almost seems true.

It’s hard to say what the weather in Amsterdam is going to be like, but we try anyway. We provide weekly weather forecasts, along with month to month details on what you can expect (and what to wear).

Make sure you visit the Amsterdam Weather homepage.

Amsterdam weather in March

March in Amsterdam is characterized by erratic weather. But the old joke that Holland has four seasons a day is more likely to make sense in March than in any other month. Updated throughout the month. And yes, we’re in the middle of a cold snap.

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. That said, there is a slight chance that ice skating on the canals of Amsterdam will be possible this winter.

Amsterdam weather in January

January tends to be Amsterdam’s coldest month.

You can expect anything from gloomy days with (near) freezing temperatures to deep blue, cloudless skies with lots of sun.

Normally you can count on snow, but not this year. In fact, January 2018 ends with unusually mild weather.

Amsterdam weather in September

Often September in Holland has many days of summer-like weather.

This is a good month in which to visit Amsterdam. But mind you: as always, the weather here is rather changeable. You could just as easily encounter (much) wind and rain.
