Ice Skating on Museumplein

It looks something like an Avercamp painting for the 21st century, there’s a skating rink outside the Rijksmuseum. It’s open air with a model “Magere Brug” across it. There were a lot of families there when I visited in the middle of the day, the kids were loving it, some were learning to skate behind a chair. Some were falling down a lot – but as they were generally put back on their feet by a patient parent within a minute it didn’t seem to bother them. Looks like fun.
