I have never celebrated christmas before, and I am planning a winterly new year's vacation.
Is Amserdam a recommended destination for this time of the year?
I would like to experience the european christmas markets, street's tree and romantic lights.
However, I know that in some cities in europe people tend to be with their families and the streets are pretty empty at this time. So I'd like to know if it's attractive for tourists to come at christmas time and the new years eve.
Moreover, since I am planning to stay for 10 days, I would be glad for recommendations of places to visit outside amsterdam at wintertime
