Figure Skaters Glide Across Frozen Amsterdam Canal

Figure skaters used Amsterdam’s canals as an ice rink on Saturday, February 13, as a cold snap hit Europe. Gui Bosselaers captured this footage of the skaters spinning on the Keizersgracht canal.

While many were able to glide across the frozen canals with ease, not everyone had the same experience; firefighters had to pull skaters from the water at the Hague on Friday and a skater was captured falling through the ice into the frigid water of an Amsterdam canal on Sunday.
