Bonfire 2024


Annually from December 27th to 31st, the construction of the Noorderstrand in Scheveningen takes place for the Bonfire Scheveningen. This is a tradition in Scheveningen with the aim of organizing the best Bonfire in the Netherlands.

The Bonfire is lit on New Year's Eve, December 31st, around midnight (00:00 hours) to celebrate the New Year. Admission is free. From the Scheveningen Boulevard, you have a good view of this gigantic Bonfire.


The location is at the Strandweg tram stop of tram 11. In Scheveningen, it is locally known as 'de lus.'


It can be very crowded on December 31st due to car traffic, so visitors are advised to use public transportation. Most visitors from outside the city are best advised to arrive between 18:00 and 20:00, as there are usually plenty of parking spaces available in Scheveningen.

Starting from 10:00 PM, it's best to find a spot on the Scheveningen Boulevard due to the heavy crowds after 11:00 PM.
