Rhine New Year's City Experience 2025

Silvesterreise Rotterdam mit A-ROSA

Highlights of the Rhine New Year's City Experience

Happy New Year in Holland & Belgium!

From Cologne to Amsterdam, Antwerp, Dordrecht and Nijmegen to Cologne.

Celebrate New Year's Eve in the Netherlands! Party in the countries most futuristic city: Rotterdam. It is guaranteed to raise your spirits. Fireworks light up the sky and are reflected in the canals below. The colourful, narrow merchants’ houses, all of which seem to mock the invention of the spirit level, are irresistible, as are the Netherlands locals, who are always ready to party. But this cruise has even more to offer: Rubens fans will be in their element in the artist’s home town of Antwerp. Antwerp is also the home of the diamond trade. Indeed, diamonds provided the city with the wealth that keeps it looking magnificent. Followed by Dordrecht, which is another feast for the eyes. The city is located right at the waterfront and offers impressive architectural monuments and charming little harbours in the middle of town. This is just how a new year should start: with a wealth of completely new experiences. Gelukkig nieuwjaar!

Köln Städtereise mit A-ROSA

Cologne

There are many things to see in Cologne, and they are all overshadowed by the cathedral. At 144.5 metres long and 157.38 metres high, this is the third-highest church building in the world. The view over Cologne, the Rhine and the surrounding areas makes climbing the south tower’s 533 steps well worth the effort. The basilica of Great St Martin Church is another fantastic sight. The brightly coloured houses of Cologne’s fish market seem to glow in front of it. Located away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, you can soak up the atmosphere of the old town here. And end the year with exploring the many faces of Cologne.

Rotterdam

Rotterdam

Welcome the New Year together with a sparkling champagne in hand and enjoy the view from the sundeck of the port city of Rotterdam, brightly lit by colorful lights. Or go straight to the city centre and soak it all in. It's up to you! And right before midnight, when the countdown begins, and everyone is eagerly waiting for the phenomenal fireworks, you realize: It's a very special New Year's Eve, a magical night in the Netherlands.

Amsterdam

Amsterdam

The lively ringing of bicycles welcomes the new year in Amsterdam. The popular means of transportation is the most flexible way to get to know all the exciting corners here. Always riding along the historic canals, you can see the countless boats and wonderful old merchants' houses. There are also a lot of small stores where you can find special souvenirs. How about a stroll through the nine-street district? Or a visit to one of the city's many museums? How you start the new year is entirely up to you.

We will set off on our exciting Rhine cruise from here, heading for the northern or the southern Rhine. But you shouldn’t miss out on the opportunity to explore this cathedral city, with its wealth of monuments and attractions. The best way is to arrive the day before your cruise departs, so that you can relax – or simply extend your stay in Cologne after the cruise has ended.

A-ROSA Sena in Köln

Amsterdam is an incredibly varied city. It’s old yet modern, relaxed yet bustling, and arty while also being commercial. With almost 7,500 listed buildings, it has the highest concentration of historical monuments in the whole country. When your Rhine cruise calls at Amsterdam, you’ll be able to discover a piece of history around every corner.

Amsterdam

The port city of Antwerp is an absolute must-see. Rich in art and culture, it is also known as the ‘Diamond City’ due to its important role in the diamond trade. Antwerp is particularly enjoyable for foodies, thanks to the many tasty Belgian specialities on offer there – including waffles, chocolates and chips.

Antwerp

Discover the oldest city in Holland! Dordrecht, the city on the water, with its countless monuments and small city harbors. Here the three rivers Merwede, Noord and Oude Maas flow together, which give Dordrecht the flair of a city by the sea.

Dordrecht

The Romans astutely identified the ideal location along the Rhine River nearly 2,000 years ago, laying the foundation for the oldest city in the Netherlands. Today, this Hanseatic city captivates visitors with its rich historical sites and the vibrant energy brought by its thriving student population. Nijmegen's liveliness extends to its city beaches, where you can immerse yourself in the beauty of its unique surroundings.

Nijmegen

Your exciting Rhine cruise ends in Cologne, but your wonderful memories will last forever. Before you start your journey home, use the day to take a further look around North Rhine-Westphalia or explore the city. The magnificent cathedral of Cologne is an absolute must-see. See you soon and Ahoy!
