Frankfurt New Year's Eve Bombastic - Is It Typical or Not?

Jump to last reply

I have been in Amsterdam on New Year's Eve and it was bombastic - like a war zone from about noon to way after midnight - fire crackers and heavy ordnance it seems being thrown everywhere - had to watch where I was walking - I thought this may be unique to Amsterdam or Holland but friends just back from New Years Eve in Frankfurt said there was a similar war zone scene - they had to be careful about walking - looking ahead for folks tossing cherry bombs, etc on the street - they said it started early in the afternoon and did not cease to after midnight.

So Amsterdam is not unique in this it seems but the question is - is this now the rule in many European cities? I was in London a few years back and there was none of this but maybe that has changed as well.

Is this a new trend or are Amsterdam and Frankfurt unique in that?

Thanks for insights from folks experiencing New Years Even recently in Europe.
