The 1890 World Allround Speed Skating Championships took place at 8 and 9 January at the ice rink Museumplein in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. It is the first World Allround Speed Skating Championships, it's unofficial because there was no International Skating Union (ISU is founded in 1892)

Three distances were skated at the World Championship, the ½ mile (850 meter), the 1 mile (1609 meter) and the 2 miles (3219 meter). One became champion if one won all three distances.

The Russian Aleksandr Pansjin didn't win the final at the 2 miles and was not declared as winner due to the rules.
