New Year’s Eve in Holland
Dec. 31, 2023 - Jan. 1, 2024, All of Holland
In Holland everyone is allowed to buy their own supply of fireworks to light up the sky, which many people do enthusiastically. Millions of euros are spent every year so it’s a real spectacle. While fireworks are officially allowed for one hour on New Year’s Eve, there is a lot of popping and banging throughout the day and night.
Want to start the new year afresh?
If you are in Holland on January 1st, you can participate in an extraordinary tradition: The New Year’s Dive. The morning of New Year’s Day begins with a refreshing dip into the sea or lake in over 200 locations. The biggest event with the greatest number of participants can be found in Scheveningen.
