Sinterklaas arrival

Sinterklaas arrival

This event is especially for kids! On November 17, 2019, so called “Sinterklaas” and his “Pieten” set foot on Amsterdam’s shore again. Every year they set foot in Amsterdam in November. With almost 400,000 children on the side, a fantastic entry on the Amstel with hundreds of boats and an entry on horseback that becomes more fun, more festive and more beautiful every year. The procession of floats is one kilometer long and therefore the largest Sinterklaas entry in the country. Sinterklaas fun then continues daily until the official Sinterklaas evening on December 5.

When: 17 november 2019
Location: Amsterdam from 10.00 untill 15:30

Hello, I’m Alison and I love my city. I’ve always believed Amsterdam has so much more to offer than what the guidebooks tell you. But as a visitor, it’s all too easy to get caught up in the highlights and miss out on having an authentic Amsterdam experience. That’s why I’m passionate about showing you my city from a truly local perspective.
