The Biggest Firework Show Of The Netherlands

The best and biggest firework show in The Netherlands can be seen live at the Erasmus bridge in Rotterdam. People come from all over just to be there. First, there will be a firework show for children at 19.00 hours and at midnight the real spectacle will begin. Next to the main show at the Erasmus bridge, there will be two other firework shows in Hoek van Holland and Nesselande. Lighting your fireworks is prohibited at many spots in Rotterdam.


At Inntel Hotels Rotterdam Centre and Mainport New Year’s Eve is a big thing. This year the theme will be “Touch-of-Gold”. As many people already know the 16th floor with Panorama view is the place to be for New Year. The celebration will include, DJ’s, Champagne, “oliebollen”, a photo booth and the best view on the National Fireworks. For a complete night out you can book the live cooking dinner buffet with, of course, a grand dessert.
