The Uptown Hostel
New Years Eve at the Dam

Where to go on New Years’ eve

It may not be exactly Time-Square, but if the weather’s good, every inch of the dam square will be filled with people watching the fireworks. And for the 4th time now, a huge (free) party called “DamFeest” with famous DJ’s will be thrown there.

Traditionally, all the other big open spaces such as Leidseplein and Rembrantplein will have similar scenarios, but make your way to the Nieuwmarkt square, which is next to the Chinese district…and we all know what those guys are good in…making the craziest fireworks on the planet!

Then when you’re all ready to go home in a taxi, you’ll find cell phones won’t be able to connect because of the insane number of New Year’s wishes people send each other, and when you do find a taxi, that the rates are pretty much tripled for that one night.

So be glad the Pig Hostels are within walking distance :)
