Skating in Amsterdam

Walking on my way to the station I saw a lot of people going home on skates or just having fun.

It was a very long time ago that skating in the canals was possible.

Some clever guys put up a camping table and some benches with a big mess-tin filled with hot chocolate milk. They did good business.

  1. Looks just like these paintings I hoped to drow as a child. Very nice to see. Biking and skating = Holland

  3. That's just amazing. Love these shots. Reminds me of my first winter in Munich way back in the mid 80s when there was a serious cold spell and some of the ponds froze over like this.

  4. Oh wow! That's Amazing I never pictured the canals frozen. It's strange to see such cold weather when it's so warm here 25C today and 27C tomorrow.

  8. These are amazing photos. I love all the furniture on the ice like that. I had no idea Amsterdam could freeze like that.
