The history of skating
Skating in the Netherlands has a long, unique history. Our low country is ideally suited to move you across the ice in the winter. Nowhere else in the world do you find so many people on ice skates in winter than in the Netherlands. That was already the case in the 15th century and is happening to this day. During those centuries, various developments took place in the skating culture, which led to the Netherlands still being a leading skating country.
