Christmas Decorations in Amsterdam

Amsterdam, the capital city of Netherlands has a spellbinding effect on the visitors. The Christmas decorations over here start from mid November onwards with a parade of Sinter Klaus (better known as Santa Klaus) and all his Swarta Pete or Zwarte Pieten (Black Peters).

It is said that Back Peters bestow gifts on the children who are good and punish the naughty ones by whisking them away to London. People of all the age groups especially the young children eagerly wait for this annual festive ritual.
Every year, the Museumplein is transformed into a Christmas Square where people come to have fun and enjoy themselves. An ice rink is opened towards the evening for the revelers to unwind.

The markets and buildings decorated with the Christmas lights provide a wonderful sight. The shops at Jordan with the specialty boutiques, mini restaurants and galleries are other attractions, which should not be missed.

The dazzling lights all around accompanied with happy people create just a perfect setting. The churches offer seasonal concerts and on the Christmas Eve masses are organized. Restaurants and cafes with elaborate Christmas decorations and menus add to the festive look.

The lights at Red Light District also never appear to fade away. On your visit to Amsterdam, check out the museums like The Rijksmuseum, Anna Frank Huis, FOAM and the Torture Museum.
