Drinking age in The Netherlands

Jump to last reply

I know it was raised from 16 to 18 in 2014, but a few places I read things saying that although you must be 18 to purchase or order alcohol, it's not illegal to consume it... not sure if this is true? I'm asking because I'm visiting for a week this summer with my mom, and I won't be 18 until the day after we get home. I've passed for over 18 before, but I'm not sure how strictly they enforce the rule or check ID. It's totally fine with me if I can't drink (but I would like to). If we were to go out to dinner or to a bar or café, would I typically be carded? Or if my mom ordered a drink for me, would I be allowed to drink it? I posted this on another travel forum as well, and got two conflicting answers, so I'm hoping someone here knows! Thanks!
