New Year’s Eve in Scheveningen

New Year is another wild celebration. The Dutch often stay home with their families until midnight, and many bars open just then. Many venues offer New Year parties. From midnight the sky lights up as everyone sets of fireworks.

People in Scheveningen love a party and New Year’s Eve in particular. It’s a reason for great celebrations, from parties with DJs to exclusive costume balls, cosy restaurant dinners and street parties.

Book your tickets in advance
Try to decide well in advance, however, because for many parties you need to buy tickets early on. Even many cafés and restaurants are fully booked on New Year’s Eve or have private events requiring advance reservation.

Street parties and fireworks
If you do not have special tickets for a party or dinner, never fear that you’ll miss out on the celebration. Also the town center offers plenty of entertainment.
