ICE* Amsterdam

If you happen to be in Amsterdam‘s museum District, a visit to ICE* Amsterdam, the ice skating rink in Museumplein, is definitely worth a visit and is a fun way to keep warm.

The rink is beautifully positioned with the Rijksmuseum as a backdrop and features a copy of the ‘Magere Brug’ (Skinny Bridge), making it winter wonderland post-card perfect.

The seasonal rink has a heated outdoor terrace and bar. Join in the skating or watch from
the restaurant ‘Brasserie Winters’ while enjoying some classic Dutch treats such as the ‘Hollandse snert’ (pea soup), ‘stamppot’ (mashed potatoes and vegetables), and ‘Apfelstrüdel’ (apple tart) with some hot chocolate.

The vibe is amazing and the visitors are a mixture of young children to adults. So don’t be afraid if you are a first time, there are lots of people falling on their bums, it makes for a good laugh.
