Winter weather in Amserdam

by Oregonguy

Hello,

Will be spending the holidays in Amsterdam, and would like to know what to expect.

I know 'cold' is relative...
15 deg farenheit in Anchorage Alaska feels much warmer than 30F in Portland, because it is such a dry cold.

In 2009 I was in Stuttgart, and although it was in the high 30s, I had never been so cold in my life. Even with multiple layers I was still freezing.

So aside from just "temperature", how cold will it be?

You should be just fine from Oregon (good luck BCS, by the way!) A'Dam temps can be in the 20-30's F in the winter, and along the canals it can get a bit breezy----also some of the bigger squares.....Make sure to take an umbrella---it really doesnt snow much, but it can be wet and cold.....
Drink lots of Jenever and stay warm!

Hi

When will you be in Amsterdam? When I've been in Winter it's generally a damp cold which seeps into your bones I find.
Europe at the moment is very cold (by our standards) where I live (Bristol, UK)it's due to be -10 tomorrow but it's very dry. A -10 on the East will be worse as it's damp and snowy.
My parents have just come back from Germany, whilst it wasn't as snowy as Yorkshire they say it was colder and icier.
I generally use metcheck for checking weather;

At the moment Amsterdam looks warm (meaning in the +C) but damp and snowy.

They have a Maritime climate = damp and cloudy in the winter.

Yes, it will be damp - we were there in late Sept. and the humidity level runs noticeably high. Add a breeze and you'll want those layers. If you have a jacket that blocks both wind and moisture, and has a liner, that might be a good idea - put a fleece underneath that you can shed once inside. Good stout socks and warm boots, too.

I know what you mean about damp cold -I froze to death in San Francisco in August (another maritime climate)!

Next week day temperqatures will be just above zero; mild weather.

The week thereafter colder weather is expected to return again (60 to 70 % chance).

It all depends on the wind direction.

South Westerly wind will keep the weather mild.

The wind strength is important too. It can be minus 5 (Celsius) and feel like minus 15 when it's windy.

Re: Winter weather in Amserdam

Well, ofcourse it is winter. But the temp. will be for the next week a few degrees below zero dregrees Celcius. In the weekend expect around 5 degrees C.
You can also look at www.weer.nl for the actual weather.

Travel Tips for Amsterdam

Walk everywhere!

by NorCalKid

The best way to learn the city is to walk everywhere. I had a little fear on learning my way by getting on a tram and not being able to get off where I saw I needed to go. That, however weird it sounds, forced me to walk. It took a couple of days, but once you tune in the internal compass you'll have no problem getting to where you need to go. There are helpful "you are here" maps all around. The key trick is to orientate yourself from where you are to where you need to go. Remember the streets run on the canal system that is in a horseshoe configuration, Central Station being at the top if looking from overhead. On this you can't just walk a few extra blocks one way and think you have a short cut. You'll wind up lost. Streets are not on a rectangular system that some might be use too. The street signs are on the corner of the buildings not on poles on the corners. If conscious of looking like a lost tourist just use a restroom somewhere and pull out your handy map out of sight of others. I can't really say there is anything I miss more than the uniqueness of the city. I love the energy of the people and difference in the culture. Amsterdam is one of a kind city. The canals and leaning buildings with such awesome architecture. Dodging and negotiating the bicycle traffic is a learning experience. I loved it there and was there during November. I can't wait to visit in spring or summer when it is nice and can ride a bike around in shorts checking out windmills in the countryside.

Fashions

by dlandt

Dutch men don't seem to dress differently than American men. Women dress subtly differently, though not a lot. My opinion was that they favor earth tones and like the heavier, sometimes woolier, comfy looking fabrics with solid colors. My Dutch friend Rene and I demonstrate the similarities in handsome Dutch and American fashion here.

The most important activity I...

by fotografik

The most important activity I recommend is walking around the city. YOu see so much and you get to know the streets. You must shop! Magnum Shopping Mall! One must go cycling! I miss the mixture of people, the architecture, the society, the freedom, the atmosphere, the environment, great public transportation, wonderful musuems, the bicycles, outdoor cafes, walking avenues, and the nightlife.

canal tour

by MATIM

sailing along those beautiful canal houses, made me wonder how this all looked like during the old days.
Women dressed in beautiful long dresses wearing the most fancy hats. Coaches riding at the narrow streets along the canals.

Rijksmuseum

by bugulma

Rijksmuseum is a national museum of Netherlands. It has a large collection of Dutch painters. The national museum was founded in 1800 in The Hague and was moved to Amsterdam in 1808. The present building was built for th museum in 1885 by Pierre Kuypers architect. The entrance is EUR 10. Unfortunately since 2005 year the 95%part of the museum is closed for renovation and I didn't see much (the museum site says the renovation will last till 2009).
