December 2017. A series of blizzards cloaked Amsterdam for two days earlier this week. The last time it snowed this much was in the winter of 2013 – a winter that seemed to go on forever! The past few winters in Amsterdam were relatively mild and very wet so people were understandably excited when it started to snow last Sunday. It wreaked havoc on traffic and public transport but for those in the city, it made for a wondrous winter experience! Amsterdam is such a beautiful city but when it snows, the city is transformed into a simply magical place. I went on several walks around the city centre and I was just mesmerised by the gorgeous winter scenes in Amsterdam. Check out my photos below:
A snowy winter in Amsterdam
It stopped snowing on Sunday evening but the next day, Amsterdam was hit by another blizzard.
That evening, I went for a walk along the Amsterdam canals and the winter scenes were simply enchanting! I couldn’t help but take lots of photos of snow-covered bicycles! Haha!
Everything turned to slush the following day as the sun shone brightly but it sure was a memorable two days! The winter scenes in Amsterdam were absolutely gorgeous!
