What Amsterdam in the snow looks like through the lens of street photographer Thomas Schlijper
Here’s something you won’t see the tourist office do: we’ll show you a video of a walk through the center of Amsterdam on a grey and chilly November morning.
Notice how quiet it is in the city.
Amsterdam was made for bicycling.
Well, actually, the 700+ year-old city’s narrow streets were made for pedestrians, horse-draw carts, push carts and boats, but bicycles fit this city to a T
It’s been more than a decade since the winter weather in Amsterdam was cold enough — for long enough — to allow people to ice skate the city’s famous canals. But the winter of 2012 will long be remembered for its excellent ice skating weather. Watch this beautiful video.
Amsterdammer and bicycle enthousiast Marc van Woudenberg says, “I witnessed a bicycle getting blown into the canal by the wind. My friend Suze and I ventured outside to salvage it, here’s what happened.”
Tour the canals of Amsterdam in your own boat, a rented sloop, or on board of a glass-topped canal excursion boat.
Amsterdam provides the ideal business environment — a perfect balance of work and play, old world charm and highly advanced innovation.
The city is host to many international conventions, trade fairs and business meetings.
