Amsterdam has always been one of the most popular places in Europe to ring in the new year. We have everything you could possibly hope for to celebrate, from top-class restaurants and nightclubs to cultural events, there is something for ages and interests. You can also enjoy excellent serviced apartment accommodation in Amsterdam so you can experience the city like a local. Here are some of the best ways to celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of another in Amsterdam.
Dance the Night Away
There are hundreds of bars, pubs, and nightclubs in Amsterdam to ring in the new year, from black tie events to grungy warehouse raves. Step back in time to the roaring twenties and join the elegant Great Gatsby Party in De Nieuwe KHL, where the man himself will welcome you with a glass of bubbly and a smile. Throughout the evening there are burlesque and variety performances and live music by The Maestros, a band that converts old jazz classics into pop hits. For something a little more down to earth, visit Delirium for their annual NYE rave. They brew some of the best beer in Amsterdam and you’re guaranteed a great night of drinking, dancing, and fun with friends.
If you’re planning to attend a New Years Party this year, don’t delay. Tickets are limited and in demand so buy your tickets soon!
Dine With a View
There may be no fireworks in Amsterdam this year (boo!) but the city will light up in its own way. Find a restaurant with a rooftop view and watch the city welcome a new year together. There are many venues with stunning views but rooftop bars and restaurants will give you the best view in the city. Visit Moon or Madam in the A’DAM Tower or Canvas, a restaurant during the day that transforms into a top class nightclub at night. For a New Year’s celebration you won’t forget, visit Juniper & Kin, set on the 21st floor with views and delicious cocktails that will help you create memories of a lifetime with your loved ones.
All of the Lights
If you’ve left it too late to get tickets for the hottest parties in town, enjoy the buzz on the streets of Amsterdam and enjoy NYE like a local. There may be no official fireworks display this year but you’ll likely see some enthusiastic locals setting off fireworks on bridges, in parks and in open areas. You can also enjoy the atmosphere of the Amsterdam Light Festival when the canals of Amsterdam are lit up by the best light artists in Holland and from around the world. The festival can be enjoyed free of charge. You can walk, bike or sail along the route and pictures really don’t do this experience justice.
New Year’s Day Dip
If you’re feeling very brave, join in the traditional New Years Day swim in coastal areas surrounding the city. One of the biggest celebrations is at Zandvoort aan Zee, about half an hour west of Amsterdam, where thousands of sea dippers brave the freezing north sea. If you’re not brave (or crazy) enough to take a dip, enjoy the celebrations from dry land with a flask or tea or a hot cup of soup. There is a great atmosphere no matter the weather with music & celebrations in good spirits taking place up and down the coast.
