Let me introduce myself: I’m Jessica, e-commerce Buyer & Merchandise Manager at Scotch & Soda and mother of 2 sons: Pelle (3) and Morrison (1). I live together with my boyfriend and the kids on the second floor in Amsterdam, right on the border of the brimming Pijp and the fancy Museumkwartier. Dinner with the kids can be a real challenge sometimes in Amsterdam. So I made it my personal challenge to spot these restaurants. Especially the ones you also love to go to without kids are my favourites.
Get your ice-skates out of the attic, because the ice-skating track on the Museumplein has been set up again! Created in the modern pond, right in front of the ‘I Amsterdam’ sign, between the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum and on the background the Concertbuilding. A super cultural and inspiring surrounding that asks for a special ice-skating track.
And special it is and for this edition they made it even more great, because they added a replica of the famous ‘Magere Brug’ to the track! And wow how great it is! It’s not only a beautiful sight, but you can actually walk across the bridge. And both tourists and inhabitants of Amsterdam do that with pleasure, because with all those ice-skating people in front of the Museum it looks like a historic painting by one of the great artists.
The inventor of the ice-skating track has put the Old-Dutch experience into the adjoining Brasserie Winters as well. In this wooden chalet with heated terrace, they serve hot chocolate, pea soup and hotchpotch and for the kids special dishes like pancakes and fries with a snack and applesauce.
When dusk sets in, the ice-skating track as well as the bridge are lit with the same lights as the bridges in the Amsterdam canals. It doesn’t get more magical than this.
If you don’t have ice-skates or if you haven’t sharpened them yet, no problem, you can hire them right there. Even for the littlest they have tiny ice-skates available. Entry is €3,- for the whole day.
Enjoy the Holidays & Happy 2014 in advance!
