Things to do during the festive celebrations in De L’Europe and Amsterdam

Stroll through the city as you follow the twinkling lights, decorated trees and Christmas cheer to De L’Europe. Create new memories and traditions and be inspired by the beauty that Amsterdam has to offer in this time of the year. After all, it is the most beautiful time of the year.

Freddy’s Winter Deli

We would love to introduce Freddy’s winter pop-up in the month of December for the first time, created by youngest ‘Amsterdam’ Michelin star Chef Bas van Kranen and his team of restaurant Bord’Eau. Freddy’s winter pop-up will appear on the De L’Europe’s corner as a “Christmas Deli”, complete with festive decorations. Within this cosy setting you can enjoy a selection of festive sandwiches, other treats and drinks, all “to go” or create your own Christmas gift box.

Noël sur l’eau
chez Marie

We would like to announce our first Winter Terrace on the beautiful Amstel, open during the holidays. With the theme of a winter forest, this Christmas cracker will be decorated with Christmas trees, twinkling lights and is an ideal lunch spot for our hotel guests in the beautiful winter sun, heated with a blanket or to stop for delicious festive drinks and bites “to go”.

Festive Floating Feast

Float through the famous canals while enjoying hot chocolate milk, mulled wine, and Christmas savouries.
