Amsterdam is one of the most alluring places on the planet. It has everything that is awesome about European destinations and then some more. Known for its efficient canal system, laid back and charming lifestyle, beautiful houses and facades, and amazing museums that do justice to its rich art and culture, Amsterdam is every traveler’s dream. It is one of the cities that you will never want to leave. Cycling is a common way of getting around and every street corner has a trendy cafe or restaurant. As the capital city of The Netherlands, Amsterdam attracts tourists, businessmen and vacationers from all over the world. While Amsterdam is extremely alluring in every season, winter in Amsterdam is particularly magical. As soon as it snows, the whole city transforms into a white paradise that exudes a festive ambiance. (DO SEE 10 spectacular waterfront cities in the world!) These beautiful photos of Amsterdam in winter show why you must visit it around Christmas time at least once in a lifetime. Also Read - Planning a Tour to Amsterdam?
