Ice Skating the Canals in Amsterdam and Utrecht

When it gets cold enough in a Dutch winter, residents of Amsterdam and Utrecht don ice skates and take to the frozen canals. The cold weather is met with anticipation and joy, residents raid their closets and canal-side shops to find their gear. Luckily, many cafes line the canals for post-skating coffee and hot chocolate.
