Amsterdam is basically a city floating on water and is well known as the city of canals. This beauty reaches to its zenith at the wintertime when the temperature drops down and the canals around the city gets freeze. People from all over the world travel here with the curiosity to just have a look of this beautiful sight which could be mixed up with the fun through ice skating. Ice skating on the canals of Amsterdam is really a great fun and an exciting experience. The ‘Eleven Cities Journey’, a skating marathan that held in January through the countryside of Frisland, is a great attraction. But ice skating on canals does not happen every year; you can only enjoy it when the mercury level of the city goes down. As the city is surrounded by canals all around so it’s a wonderful view to watch Amsterdam when the canals get freeze.
For Ice Skating the ice frozen on canal needs to be strong enough and it only happens when the barometer drops below zero degree. It’s the time when there is sparkle in the eyes of Dutch. It’s enjoy full moment not only for Dutch but for all visitors to have a view of ice-skating around the frozen canals with the sip of hot chocolate and enjoying the Pofferties (traditional Dutch pancakes). Even if you don’t want to skate, it’s a fun to watch others skating and watching them falling down in a crazy manner.
Although natural ice skating is a remarkable experience but in case the temperature does not drop down for skating there are other locations available in Amsterdam to take pleasure of the bustle. Skating rinks at Heart of Amsterdam named Museumplein, Westerpark and Damsquare are small but very romantic. Larger rink could be found at Jaap Eden Complex. Here you can rent the skates and even you are allowed to take them out of the rink. The outdoor rink of Jaap Eden Baan’s is very popular in wintertime. Ice skating in Amsterdam could be enjoyed in Amsterdam at Museumplein in skating rink in the open air.
