If the frost is strong enough for about a week, which has become rare in recent years, many Dutch will take to the canals, small lakes or (deliberately) flooded fields for their favourite winter sports: skating. The brave even take to the deeper waters, which still have open patches, like this one, next to the Rhine river. So you better take care, if you can't swim...

Equipment: skates, though sometimes a sleigh, some simple boards and a chair (to sit on and to "stabalize" the beginner) can be of help...

Address: anywhere where there is water
Directions: just follow the line of cyclists, parked cars or the smell of hot choclat drinks, being served from an outdoor counter...
Theme: Other

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
