The ultimate Dutch winter wonderland photo report

We're dreaming of a white Christmas ❄️🎄

One thing that never changes in the Netherlands is the love for snow. And so, here are some magical pictures of the snowy Netherlands.

Every time snow falls, 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 1,000 kilometres in the past!

Now it’s about time we fulfilled our duty in bringing you all those delicious pictures of the Dutch winter wonderland. ❄️

It’s snow time!

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

DutchReview readers are just the best. Sadly we couldn’t all post them (our servers would die on us). So here are some of the good stuff we received.
