The Christmas period in Holland
The month of December is a very pleasant time in Holland. As soon as Sinterklaas leaves, the streets and shops are decorated with lights and Christmas trees. In the weeks leading up to the holidays, Christmas songs enhance the mood in shopping malls and restaurants. Christmas markets and ice-skating rinks appear on squares in the city. And if the weather is right, you might even see snow….
Are you coming to visit one of the Christmas markets, the Dickens Fest in Deventer, or one of the delightful events at one of Holland’s castles? You can do your Christmas shopping in one of the pleasant cities. Christmas in the Hanseatic cities is extraordinary because of their authentic buildings and true old Dutch ambiance. You can admire the lights at Gouda by Candlelight, Glow Eindhoven, or the Amsterdam Light Festival.
In short, there are plenty of reasons to visit Holland in December.
