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.

There will not be 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.

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

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