Does It Snow In Amsterdam?

Is something that people often ask. It sure does! These 10 Amsterdam snow pictures show what the Dutch capital looks like when fully snowed. The snow photos below were shot in February 2021 around the Red Light District.

Red Light District

The window brothels are closed due to the current corona measures. This is what the windows look like when the curtains are closed and when there is snow in front of the doors.


It is not only the window brothels that are temporarily closed due to the corona measures. Restaurants, hotels, shops, museums and sex shows are also closed. The tourists are not to be found here. Economically, these are tough times for this neighborhood, where people normally earn money from tourists.

Now, only locals who enjoy the snow and the special situation in the Red Light District.
