New Year’s Eve 2019/20 in NRW

Party on the Rhine and ad­ven­tures in tree­tops

En­joy the end of the year at the Rhine or cel­eb­rate with your fam­ily in Phant­as­i­a­land in Brühl - there are so many pos­sib­il­it­ies for spend­ing New Year’s Eve in NRW.

Big parties to mark the end of the year

New Year?s Eve on the Rhine

The New Year?s Eve fire­works can be en­joyed on the boats op­er­ated by the Köln-Düs­sel­dor­fer Deutsche Rheinsch­iffahrt com­pany. As well as the open view onto the events in Düs­sel­dorf and Co­logne, there?s a large buf­fet and live mu­sic.

New Year?s Eve galas in Phant­as­i­a­land, Brühl

In Phant­as­i­a­land, guests can choose between sev­er­al New Year?s Eve galas at once. From the ?Kais­er-Sil­vester?, or Em­per­or?s New Year?s Eve, in a far-east­ern at­mo­sphere to the le­gendary Queen Night and im­mer­sion in­to the Afric­an joie de vivre. The cli­max of the even­ing is Ger­many?s longest fire­work dis­play.

Din­ner, dance and party at the Flora

Co­logne?s most beau­ti­ful party house of­fers the per­fect back­drop for a fest­ive, glam­or­ous New Year?s Eve in Co­logne. The lux­uri­ous 5-course menu with ex­quis­ite bever­ages and live mu­sic is fol­lowed by a heady dance party. Later, the new year is rung in in the party hall or on the ter­race of the roof salon.

En­joy­able high­lights on New Year?s Eve

Set menu in the ?Tenne? res­taur­ant, Land Gut Höhne in Mettmann

The hotel, which is sur­roun­ded by the his­tor­ic walls of a man­or house, of­fers an overnight pack­age at the turn of the year, which can be booked with a buf­fet and live cook­ing sta­tions in the res­taur­ant or with a set menu in the ?Tenne? res­taur­ant. When the bells in the hotel?s own bell tower ring in the new year, the col­our­ful sil­hou­ette of the fire­works in Düs­sel­dorf can be seen on a clear night.

Sen­su­al tango night in Wup­per­tal

Guests vis­it­ing the New Year's Eve ball in the im­pos­ing his­tor­ic town hall in Wup­per­tal will find them­selves not only sur­roun­ded by beau­ti­ful ar­chi­tec­ture, but also right in the centre of the tango scene. In the Rossini hall of the his­tor­ic, Wil­helmini­an-style build­ing, sen­su­al­ity is on of­fer, not only in the buf­fet, but also on the dance floor. The cli­max of the show is a tango per­form­ance just be­fore mid­night.

More spe­cial mo­ments to start the new year

New Year?s Eve on the ?Halden? in the Ruhr area

The Halden, or hills made of rubble, in the Ruhr area haven?t planned any par­tic­u­lar event for New Year?s Eve. Even so, it?s worth climb­ing up them at mid­night, with their unique 360-de­gree pan­or­amic view from above onto the fire­works in the Ruhr area. The view is of course free of charge.

New Year?s Eve in the snow, Neuss ski hall

Snow is guar­an­teed on New Year?s Eve in the Neuss ski hall. Vis­it­ors can take their fi­nal turns through the powdery snow un­til 11 pm. There?s also the op­tion of book­ing vari­ous ad­di­tion­al of­fers, such as a fon­due even­ing or a big gala buf­fet on the ?Hochalm? moun­tain pas­ture. At mid­night, guests wel­come in the new year to­geth­er on the piste.

New Year's Eve in the tree­tops

For fam­il­ies or single par­ents with chil­dren who want to take a break over New Year?s Eve and ex­per­i­ence something spe­cial, Bonn is the place to be. The youth hostel there of­fers a four-day pro­gramme dur­ing which guests slip in­to the role of spies and agents. Oth­er youth hos­tels in North Rhine-West­phalia also have something spe­cial to of­fer. In the hostel in Bad Hon­nef, for ex­ample, new ho­ri­zons will open to mark the change of the year. At the As­tro New Year?s Eve event, chil­dren aged six and above can find out more about the sky dur­ing the day and at night. At the Panar­bora New Year?s Eve spe­cial event, fam­il­ies get to­geth­er on the tree­top path in the Ber­gisches Land re­gion to wel­come in the new year on the plat­form of the view­ing tower. 

Cul­ture and tra­di­tion on New Year?s Eve

New Year's Eve con­cert in Xanten cathed­ral

Many con­cert halls and churches say good­bye to the old year with ma­jor con­certs, such as in Xanten cathed­ral. Here, Jo­hann Se­basti­an Bach and Fe­lix Mendels­sohn-Bartholdy will be played from 7.30 pm on­wards.

Din­ner for One, Mün­ster

In the Boulevard Mün­ster com­edy theatre, ?Din­ner for One? is shown in the ori­gin­al ver­sion. There are three per­form­ances, all on New Year?s Eve day. Dur­ing the even­ing, ?Landei­er? is also on the pro­gramme - with a large New Year?s Eve buf­fet.

Hol­i­day on Ice, Mün­ster

The first great love, the first kiss or an un­for­get­table ad­ven­ture: All these can be the love­li­est mo­ments in a per­son?s life - spe­cial memor­ies that have in­spired the show called ?Show­time? by Hol­i­day on Ice. The show will vis­it Mün­ster from 26.12.2019 to 30.12.2019. Two per­form­ances will be giv­en in the Messe und Con­gress Zen­trum Halle Mün­ster­land trade fair and con­gress hall.
