Frosty Holland looks like a Fairytale (Updated with more magic!)

(*All the DutchReview fans loved it so much and sent us so many pictures we just had to update this article, scroll down for “Part 2” for the latest ones)

We already knew that the Netherlands could look amazing when there’s even a bit of snow. That little white layer just erases all the smudge and makes it glow in pure photogenic-ness. Today was one of the most beautiful days of the Netherlands since years, the little frosty layer – the Dutch call it ‘rijp’ – just made for some amazing scenes.

Since it was way too cold to go outside for a long time we stayed in and scoured the web for the best of frosty Holland. Here are some great pics made today in Amsterdam, Utrecht, Rotterdam, The Hague and the Dutch countryside.
