December , New Year's Eve , Amsterdam

Event Information:

Amsterdam for New year will be hosting parties in clubs, a series of lively events in the city's squares, fireworks displays, and an absolutely electric atmosphere. Amsterdam is a great city to celebrate New Year's Eve. The largest event in the city is the free concert and dance party at the Museumplein, featuring Dutch bands and DJs and a gigantic midnight fireworks display. Each year the locals hit the town to celebrate the countdown to Oud en Nieuw, better known as New Year's Eve with the famous city-wide street parties that take over the public squares. If you would like to gain the best vantage point for viewing the fireworks on the Amstel River, one of the best views is from Magere Brug.

The iconic New Year's Eve experience is Amsterdam's own version of the Times Square countdown: the national New Year's Eve party on Museumplein (Museum Square) that is broadcast to millions of viewers across the country. The monumental square becomes the scene of an all-out street party complete with the only official fireworks spectacular in the city. The Museumplein is a square in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The square is called "Museum Square" because four museums are located around the square: the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum, and the Diamond Museum. It is used for (mass) events such as festivals, celebrations, and demonstrations and was the location of an international and colonial exhibition in 1883.

Prinsengracht (Prince's Canal) is the fourth and the longest of the main canals in Amsterdam. It is named after the Prince of Orange. Most of the canal houses along it were built during the Dutch Golden Age of the United Provinces. The bridges over this canal don't connect with the streets in the Jordaan. Interesting sights along Prinsengracht include the Noorderkerk (Northern Church), the Noordermarkt (Northern Market), Anne Frank House, the Westerkerk (Western Church, Amsterdam's tallest church) with the Homomonument (Gay Monument), which actually faces Keizersgracht.
