For 12 days, the indoor and outdoor areas of the Amsterdam RAI will be transformed into the place-to-be for getting into the true Christmas spirit for young and old, with the Winterparade!
The Amsterdam Winterparade is a grand event that presents all kinds of special activities such as ice skating under thousands of lights. A 50-metre high Ferris wheel and a Winter Wellness section with saunas and Jacuzzi's are just a few of the special attractions.
During the day and in the evening, there will be plenty to discover in various special areas:
The Winter Square
The Winter Square is a cosy gathering place with warm fires, Christmas trees and festive lighting. Roast some marshmallows, peruse the Christmas Market while carollers fill the air with song, see circus shows and magicians, and finish up with a refreshment at the après ski bar in the evening!
The Ice Skating Rink and Food Market
The 700m2 ice skating rink has a wave of lights and Mariah Carey songs floating through the air, while the ice itself plays host to special activities like a silent disco on ice, slides and curling alleys. Surrounding the rink is the Food Market, consisting of all kinds of pop-up restaurants that serve traditional winter bites.
The Christmas Cinema
Warm up on a loveseat by a crackling fire, and watch some Christmas classics in the Christmas Cinema.
At the start of every evening, the Beer Village presents a great party with DJs and live musicians. Share drinks at the long, wooden tables and enjoy all kinds of themed parties.
