It might be a little bit early to start thinking about Christmas, but I found a fantastic deal for an Amsterdam Christmas Markets Break using Trivago and Skyscanner that will see you right in the heart of the city during the festive period.
Amsterdam Christmas Markets Break
It can be difficult to find affordable and centrally-located hotels in the Dutch capital, but the Backstage Hotel is a stone’s throw from several attractions and a 3 night stay in this highly-rated hotel for two people for a fantastic price. Included in this package are return flights. This hotel is perfect for music-lovers with a themed rooms, guitars on the walls and portable record players for guests. The Backstage, which sits near the picturesque Leidsegracht canal, is close to several museums such as the Allard Pierson, Anne Frank house and Van Gogh museum.
Provided it snows by the time of your arrival, Amsterdam looks like a scene from a fairy tale during winter. The Amsterdam Light Festival will be in full swing by the time you arrive, with bright lights and installations adding some spark to the short winter days. The best way to experience the festival is via a special Amsterdam Light Festival boat tour. The Funky Xmas Market in Westergasfabriek kicks off on December 10, and is a 15 minute bus trip from your hotel. The city is also less crowded in the winter, making your trip a little less stressful.
