Celebrate the beginning of the new year in a spectacular way. In Rotterdam, you can enjoy the countries largest, and most beautiful fireworks show.
‘The National Fireworks Show’ takes place at the bridge Erasmusbrug, and consists of music performances and the large fireworks show. Before midnight, you can enjoy music and entertainment. One of the performances is a special composition that will be played by the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra.
When 2019 runs out, the countdown begins, and there will be a large firework show in front of the bridge. We advise to be a little early, to find a good stop. Around the bridge, it usually gets very crowded.
A few good spots to see the fireworks are Buizenpark, Willemskade, or Maastunnelpark. The observation tower Euromast is further away, but from up there you will have a beautiful overview of the fireworks show.
The rest of the night, you can join one of the many parties. Are you looking for a good party? We list most New Years Eve parties here.
On New Year’s Eve, most trains, metro’s, trams and buses run only until 20:00h. But there will be two special metro lines from 22:00h till 02:00h. These run between Meijersplein and Slinge, and between Vijfsluizen and Capelsebrug. These special metro services will be free of charge.Back to Home
