Amsterdam weather in December

December is not the rainiest month, nor the coldest. But you should expect a fair amount of precipitation — usually in the form of rain or wet snow.

Don’t hold your breath for a white Christmas, though. And it won’t be cold enough for ice skating on the canals. Indeed, it looks like the changeable but rather mild weather pattern will hang around.

Amsterdam Weather in November

The weather in Amsterdam during the month of November is best characterized by the word ‘turbulent.’

The Dutch often refer to November as wind– or dolmaand — windy or crazy month. Oh, and it’s the rainiest month of the year.

Where is Amsterdam?

Everyone has heard of it, but where is Amsterdam?

And is Amsterdam in Holland or in the Netherlands? Yes.

Plus: we’ll tell you why the Dutch government has ditched the ‘Holland’ moniker and rebranded the country as ‘Netherlands.’

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.
