explore this famous city or enjoy a spot of retail therapy? Amsterdam has
a mix of modern and traditional Dutch delights that will temp the old and
the young alike.
For those big kids, this is a must:
- Amsterdam`s Famous Sinterklaas Procession (16 November, Amsterdam)
Start the festivities early by joining the traditional entry of Holland`s
Santa Claus. Every November he makes his entrance into Amsterdam on a
steamer for a festive parade through the city accompanied by floats, bands
and hundreds of helpers!
For those looking to capture Amsterdam`s traditional Christmas spirit, why
- Concertgebouw Christmas Matinée (25 December 2003, Amsterdam)
One of Amsterdam`s most famous traditions is the Christmas matinée concert
given by the Royal Concertgebouw in the famous Concertgebouw Hall. The
Orchestra was formed in 1888 and has a most enviable history - they
received the Royal prefix in honour of its centenary in 1988.
The party animals amongst you should definitely not miss:
- New Years Eve Celebrations (31 December 2003, Amsterdam)
New Year`s Eve on the streets of Amsterdam is quite an experience. The
main squares of the city become jam packed with people. Fireworks are let
off as midnight approaches to the screams and shouts of thousands of
revellers. The enthusiasm is infectious and the partying really begins to
heat up as midnight draws nearer.
For those with masses of energy:
- Friday Night Skate (Every Friday, Amsterdam)
Why not join the inline skaters at the Filmmuseum in Amsterdam`s
Vondelpark? They promenade through the streets and along the canals of
Amsterdam and surrounding towns. Varied circuits through this unique city
make this event quite a spectacle and definitely a must see!
