Why Celebrate New Year's Eve 2023 in Amsterdam?

When it comes to the perfect New Year's Eve celebration, Amsterdam is no stranger to creating an incredibly festive atmosphere, from its very own fireworks to parties in the city centre, special New Year's Eve traditions.

People from all over the world come to town to celebrate a true Dutch New Year's. And, if you're a party animal, it's also a great destination, with plenty on offer. So, if you'll be in the area this December 31, here's how to bring in the new year in Amsterdam in style.

Party in Amsterdam's public squares

Before we get onto the parties, however, it's worth a mention that Amsterdam's famous for creating an awesome party atmosphere across the city's streets and public squares, like Dam Square and Nieuwmarkt. Expect most spaces to be buzzing with music, fireworks, and crowds ready to welcome the new year.

Tips for celebrating New Year's Eve in Amsterdam

Plan ahead for crowded areas, check event timings, and dress warmly to make the most of your New Year's Eve in Amsterdam.

You might also want to try out a couple of local traditions. Brave a New Year's dive on New Year's Day at Zandvoort aan Zee (fun to some, horrifying to others).

Or, for something more indulgent, get stuck into some oliebollen (deep fried dough balls supposedly able to ward off evil spirts, but probably also pretty handy for warding off a new year's eve hangover alongside those evil spirits, too...).
