What is it?
It’s very simple. 12/31/2010 you celebrate with friends New Years Eve. Museumplein was the place to watch this year’s World Cup football tournament. And on New Year’s Eve it will host the city’s biggest party to welcome in 2011.
Why it’s cool?
Bubbles, oliebollen and best wishes are usually shared at Dam Square, but not this year. It’s easier to keep crowds safe at Museumplein. This area will be enclosed by crush barriers and visitors are likely to be checked to ensure they’re not bringing glass or fireworks. Capacity is another factor. While Dam Square can accommodate around 30,000 party people, Museumplein can hold 200,000. You’ll experience again the great time you had last summer when the Dutch Football team had achieved the secend place in the World Cup.
