Get your skates on with The Dylan, Amsterdam

2013 is a big year for the Dutch city many of us know and love, as Amsterdam prepares to celebrate 400 years of canals, art and culture. A whole hoard of events are already scheduled, including the reopening of the renovated Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum.

The Dylan Thomas Suite

Ensuring visitors get the most from their trip to the infamous destination, boutqiue hotel The Dylan has put together a premier Winter Skating Package for those who want to dive head first in to Amsterdam.

Brasserie OCCO The Dylan

The offer includes two nights in a double room plus breakfast, a warm glass of mulled wine on arrival and lunch in the hotel’s Brasserie OCCO. Most exciting however, is the use of ice-skates to breeze your way under bridges and round the bends of the giant, historic ice rink that is the canals. If the weather misbehaves and the canals are not quite skate worthy, the package includes entrance to the Museum Square ice rink instead.

Finally, all guests will receive a City Pass, granting access to all of the major museums, including the Stedeijk, Hermitage and Grachten Huis (canal museum), as well as free public transport for 24 hours.

The hotel itself is a wonderful haven situated in the centre of Amsterdam, with Michelin star restaurant Vinkeles on site.

The Winter Skating Package is available from 1 November – 31 March 2013. To find out more, visit the hotel’s website or call +31 20 530 2010.
