The ultimate Dutch winter wonderland photo report

This Christmas is going to be perhaps the strangest that the Netherlands has seen in at least the last decade. One thing that never changes however, is a love for snow. And so, here are some magical pictures of the snowy Netherlands.

Every time snow falls in the Netherlands it completely paralyzes the country with people either stuck in traffic or simply gazing at all the prettiness and funny business going on. It’s even set traffic jam records of over 1000 kilometres!

Now it’s about time we fulfilled our other duty, namely bringing you all those delicious pictures of the Dutch winter wonderland!

Dutch winter wonderland time!

So we scoured all through Instagram and asked you to send your best pics of the Dutch winter wonderland to us. We got tagged, inboxed, mail-pigeoned, telegrammed and commented on so much that it made us a bit shy β€” thank you guys!

DutchReview readers are just the best! Sadly we couldn’t all post them (our servers would die on us). Let’s just get to the good stuff for now:
