Mokum Events invites you to experience our special 'Amsterdam Christmas Spirit' tour. Enjoy the cosiness which makes this season and city so special.
It's a warm and wonderful Christmas arrangement, so to speak.
Peace on earth and goodwill towards all men (and women), that's what we want! And not only during Christmas! Mokum Events wishes you a peaceful feeling every single day. The sometimes dark and gloomy days during Christmas are the perfect occasion to lift your spirits.
Put on your coats and hats!
11:30 - 12:00 Welcome
To put you in the right mood straight away, we'll welcome you at the meeting point with a cup of hot coco with whipped cream and some delicious pastry. It's the appropriate start of a special day.
12:00 - 13.30 Skating
Next, with our bellies feeling 'comphy', we'll go to the 'Leidseplein' where this year a real skating-rink is build. The skating-rink measures 20 by 18 meters and that's bigger than ever before! And so you know, we'll all go swirling on the ice.
Don't hold back but let yourself go! If you didn't bring your own skates, we'll get some for you. Skating in the city-centre of Amsterdam, between some fine establishments where you can get a nice warm cup of coco or soup.
13:30 - 14:30 Winter Lunch
After an hour of skating, it's time for lunch. Of course we'll have a stylish winter lunch, with hot pea soup, dark rye bread with bacon and delicious sandwiches with the Dutch 'kroket' on top. Mmmmmmmmm (this is one reason why you shouldn't miss this day ...!)
We advise you to have a good meal because the day isn't over yet!
14.30 - 16:00 Winter Walk
From the Leidseplein we take a walk through narrow alleys and across bridges towards the Red Light District. Along the way we can digest our lunch and relax our muscles which were put to the test by our rigorous skating exercises.
Just imagine: put yourself in the middle of a winter scene painted by an old Dutch master. Walking along the snowy Amsterdam canals, making small slides, throwing snowballs. Isn't this winter season wonderful?
16:00 - 16:45 Liqueur tasting
Getting cold feet from walking? Did you get wet and icy hands throwing snowballs? There's a remedy for it at Mokum Events! We take you to a famous tasting venue where the inventor of some delicious liqueur put up shop.
We let you warm up during a special liqueur tasting, you can taste various kinds of drinks. And no, we are not tedious, you don't have to spit your drink out right away... But you'll have to bow before sipping the first sip, tradition is something we stick to in the Netherlands!
16:45 - 18:00 Sizzling Hot Red Light District Tour
Heated from the inside out by those fine drinks, we'll take a hike through the Red Light District (where it NEVER seems to be cold ...) during the 'Sizzling Hot Tour'.
Your guide will accompany you along the windows (note; the guide will count all group members repeatedly, so nobody gets lost...!) where the ladies with exotic attire perform their tricks. Not only theladies are interesting, also the surroundings are a sight to see!
18:00 - 20:00 Cheese Fondue
At the end of this great day, we have a special treat in store for you. We invite you for a delicious cheese fondue. Right in the 'Warmoesstraat', at a restaurant dating back to the year 1534. Have a nice and cosy get-together and enjoy the delicious fondue and wonderful atmosphere!
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow ...!
