Dear visitor of The Amsterdam Winter Paradise,

With pain in our hearts, we have to inform you that Het Amsterdamse Winterparadijs cannot take place this year.

We have of course looked at all the different options in which we could have allowed the event to continue, possibly in a modified form. Given all the developments surrounding the COVID-19 virus, the uncertainty and the tightened measures in combination with the size of the event and the diversity of activities, we could not find a way in which we can offer the ultimate winter experience that you are used to from us. Safety and health are paramount, which is why we had to make the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 edition.

The disappointment is great, but we are more motivated than ever to make it an even more spectacular edition in 2021. We can't wait to welcome you all again so that next year we can get together again with everyone in a winter landscape with real snow, a theater, the cinema, the complete music program, the catering establishments and all other activities that make Het Amsterdamse Winterparadijs so unique 🎄🌟⛄

Thanks for your understanding and your support. Stay healthy and we look forward to seeing you in 2021 during Het Amsterdamse Winterparadijs, the Ultimate Winter Experience ❄️❤️

The Ultimate Winter Experience!

Het Amsterdamse Winterparadijs

This year we are opening the doors to a better and bigger winter event than ever before! From December 21, 2019 to January 5, 2020, the RAI Amsterdam (indoor & outdoor) will once again be transformed into the place for your Ultimate Winter Experience.

There is plenty to experience both during the day and in the evening. Skate under a blanket of lights on the (even larger) indoor and outdoor ice rink, discover the ultimate view of Amsterdam from the mega ferris wheel and go karting on real ice! Celebrate the evening in the renovated après-ski hut or at the winter party with Xander de Buisonjé and  Maan, among others. Het Amsterdamse Winterparadijs brings the winter back to Amsterdam!

Real snow!

Embark on a winter wonderland with real snow, cross-country skiing among the Christmas trees, enjoy curling with your friends on the ice rink or slide down the tube jump and land in the big cushion. Roast your marshmallow over a crackling fire or go to the Christmas Cinema for nostalgic Christmas classics.

Winter party!

Stay at Het Amsterdamse Winterparadijs for dinner because the city's most popular restaurants and cafés are opening their pop-up restaurants here, bringing the tastiest food and drinks of Amsterdam under one roof! Sit down at one of the wooden tables and make sure you don't miss the evening program, because none other than Xander de Buisonjé will take care of the winter party! In addition, you should definitely not miss the Silent Apres Ski! New this year at Het Amsterdamse Winterparadijs.

The Amsterdams Winterparadijs has much more to offer. Take a look here to see what there is to experience or just come along and experience it for yourself!

“Ben hier met vrienden gaan curlen, was echt lachen. Daarna heerlijk feestje gehad in de après-ski en later door naar het hoofdpodium. Hele avond feest!”

Tim K.

"Geweldige dag gehad met de hele familie. Echt een leuk uitje tijdens de kerstperiode! We konden sleeen, langlaufen, lekker eten en later op de dag hebben we op de tafels gedanst bij Xander. Met een ritje in het reuzenrad een geweldig uitzicht over Amsterdam. Na jaren de winter Efteling was dit een geweldige verrassing."

Cathelijne V.

"Ze beloven de ultieme winterbeleving en die krijg je ook! Ik ben gaan schaatsen (of naja, heb het geprobeerd), ben van de tubebaan af gegaan in het sneeuwparadijs en om het af te toppen lekkere poffertjes gegeten. In de avond met vrienden de Après-ski in en aan de schnapps. Echt een super leuke dag gehad. Wij komen dit jaar zeker terug!!"

Claudia C.

Voor iedereen iets, overdag water er meer gezinnen, maar in de avond ging het los na de optredens en in de feesttent. Een hele fijne sfeer! Lekker eten, drinken, genoeg dingen om je te vermaken.

Kyra S.

Afgelopen jaar voor het eerst geweest en echt een aanrader voor klein en groot! Voor iedereen wat wils, overdag gezellig met allerlei activiteiten, van snowtuben, langlaufen tot gewoon chillen in de bioscoop. Ik vond het echt iets nieuws wat er nog niet is! en tijdens de kerstdagen superleuk om met de familie naar toe te gaan. In de avond gezellig biertjes gedronken en heerlijk meegezongen met Xander de Buisonjé

Annelieke B.

“Zeer leuk dagje uit met mijn gezin gehad! Terwijl de kinderen lekker aan het schaatsen waren zaten mijn man en ik aan de fondue naast de schaatsbaan. Echt ideaal. Daarna gezellig samen naar het theater en de bioscoop. We komen zeker weer!“
