Christmas in Amsterdam is truly a season of celebration, whether or not you celebrate the day itself in its traditional, religious sense. The nights may be long and dark in winter, but you can always brighten up any day with a visit to a Christmas market in Amsterdam.
Reserve the date! We will a few days in advance scout for the best Christmas market for us to photograph!
Amsterdam has several Christmas markets. Located at either end of the Leidsestraat, both Leidseplein and Koningsplein are home to various festive market stalls. The ice rink and food stands are usually at Leidseplein. Amsterdam’s neighbourhood markets run throughout the season and are a good bet for seasonal gifts and snacks.

This is a great event for those submitting photos to Shutterstock, as there are not many Christmas themed photos of Amsterdam in their collection (http://www.shutterstock.com/cat.mhtml?people_number=&commercial_ok=&search_cat=&searchterm=Christmas+Amsterdam&people_ethnicity=&anyorall=all&searchtermx=&color=&search_tracking_id=1AtKpOHNgRoXHTKnjsH6CA&media_type=photos&photographer_name=&search_source=search_form&use_local_boost=1&language=en&lang=en&version=llv1&ref_site=photo&orient=&people_gender=&show_color_wheel=1&people_age=&safesearch=1&prev_sort_method=newest&sort_method=popular&page=1).
