New Year's Eve in Amsterdam

Whether you’re a party animal or a romantic, young of years or young-at-heart, a big spender or on a budget, Amsterdam is a great city to ring in the New Year. Fireworks illuminate the night sky and the city thrums in a cacophony of rockets, aerials, brocades, bangers and glittering willows. There will not be an official city-sponsored firework display this year, but you can expect to see a host of firework shows lighting up various locations around Amsterdam. Street level can be a bit chaotic in the midst of all the revelry, so you may want to find a nice rooftop perch or balcony to take it all in.
