New Year’s Eve Events in Amsterdam

No reviews, be the first!

Amsterdam in The Netherlands has its party reputation to maintain and the city certainly erupts on New Year’s Eve to celebrate Oudejaarsavondwith fireworks and fun for residents and a multitude of hard-partying Euro-revellers alike. Stores close in the early afternoon on New Year’s Eve and reopen on January 2; most of Amsterdam’s street parties are accessible on foot in the largely pedestrianized city center.

1. Street Parties
Amsterdam’s largest – and free – street party kicks off in Oosterdok at 11.15pm with a massive firework display over the NEMO Science Centre and live music, but there are celebrations everywhere. The streets of the Jordan overflow with merrymakers pouring out of the bars for spontaneous firework parties and in Chinatown firecrackers shriek on every corner.
