Info

This year we open our doors to an amazing winter event! From the 21st of December until the 30th of December, the RAI Amsterdam (indoor and outdoor) will be transformed into the Ultimate Winter Experience. During the day and in the evenings there will be plenty to do and explore. Skate under a sky full of stars on the (much bigger than last year) indoor and outdoor skating rink, enjoy the perfect view over Amsterdam in the giant Ferris wheel, and slide of the toboggan with real snow! Celebrate the night in the après-ski or at the Winter fest with Dutch singer Xander de Buisonjé and others. Het Amsterdamse Winterparadijs brings the winter to Amsterdam!

Real snow!

Find yourself in a winter wonderland with real snow. Here you can cross-country ski in a forest of Christmas trees, play a game of curling with your friends on the curling track or have a snowball fight with your friends and family. Roast your marshmallows on a crisp fire or go to the Christmas cinema for nostalgic Christmas movies.

Winter fest!

Enjoy a great meal at Het Amsterdamse Winterparadijs, where the most popular restaurants of the city have gathered and opened their pop-up restaurants, bringing the best food and drinks of Amsterdam together. Sit yourself at one of the many wooden tables and make sure not to miss the evening program, because the one and only Xander de Buisonjé will take care of the winter fest.
