WHAT TO DOChinese New Year in Amsterdam

16th February - 17th February

Gong Xi Fa Cai! (Happy new year!)

In 2018, Chinese New Year falls on 16th February. Chinese New Year activities in Amsterdam traditionally take place at the Nieuwmarkt and the Zeedijk, but there often are festivities on the Dam too.

A taste of China

If you’re looking for something more intimate, retreat to the Fo Guang Shan He Hua, a real Buddhist temple which usually has a special programme. Alternatively, grab yourself a meal at the Sea Palace (Europe’s first floating Chinese restaurant) or at one of the many Chinese restaurants along the Stormsteeg and Geldersekade.
