It is so cold in Amsterdam that some canals have frozen over, turning them into a winter wonderland for skaters. For the first time in about six years, part of the Prinsengracht and Keizersgracht canals have frozen hard enough to support the weight of dozens of sightseers, locals and ice skaters. Footage from the canals shows people on skates criss-crossing the ice while others stroll along enjoying the novelty of walking on what is normally flowing water.

And here some pictures:
