Holiday activities in Amsterdam

Hi all!

I am planning to visit Amsterdam for the upcoming Christmas holiday, and would like to know what "family friendly" activities are there to participate/see? Also, since I'll be there on Christmas Day (Dec 25 as celebrated in the US), any ideas of what restaurants will be open (if any).


Hi Anev and welcome to the Forum.  It's a public holiday, so things won't be "normal" and many places will be closed on 25th Dec.  The "I am Amsterdam" website has a guide for the holiday period; this link will take you to there website.

Many restaurants will offer a special Christmas menu but than you have to reserve in advance  as well.
