open air skating: Jaap Eden rink is open for the winter season

speed skaters and less faster ones on Jaap Eden speed rink

Amsterdam’s skating rink is called The Jaap Eden Baan. It is a 400 meter rink which is quite often leased to speed skating clubs. But evenings are usually open for the general public (check the schedule, to be sure) and very cosy. For tourists a great plus: you can hire skates in the adjoining Waterman store. Do visit the Skeeve Skaes, the local pub. It’s even worth a visit on its own. Jaap Eden skating rink is located in Watergraafsmeer area, easy accessible by streetcar no 9.
