Halloween in Amsterdam

Halloween in Amsterdam

Leave your clogs and milkmaid hats at home; the only garb you’ll need this Halloween in Amsterdam is your creepiest and most creative costume. Although the Dutch do not officially commemorate Halloween, it is slowly becoming a worthwhile celebration along the crowded canals of the city.

The biggest Halloween party in all of Deutschland is held at Boom Chicago. This American-style comedy club requires that its patrons wear costumes on this night, with the best-costumed male, female, couple, and group taking home big prizes. Located on the Leidseplein, Boom Chicago brings together the eclectic Amsterdam scene on Halloween – a mixture of locals, expats, and tourists. Each year’s celebration has a different theme that guests of the Halloween fright-fest can either dress to match, or come up with their own creative creations. This year's theme is Mad Science organized by Amsterdam Spook, so be sure to get your best 'Weird Science' attire for this year's event.

The All Hallow’s Eve party continues at Amsterdam’s Hard Rock Café, where visitors dressed in costumes receive a complimentary “Witches Brew” cocktail. Stick around ‘til midnight if you think you’ve got the fiercest costume; the Hard Rock throws one of Amsterdam’s biggest costume contests.

Mulligan’s Irish Pub is another Amsterdam establishment that throws down for Halloween. With hollowed skulls dotting the bar, the traditional Irish décor is transformed on Halloween to bring the screams. Located right on the Amstel River, patrons are encouraged to dress their scariest while they enjoy a few pints of Amsterdam’s best Guinness.

If you are looking to rock the night away on Halloween, then make sure to visit Paradiso. The old-church-turned-concert-hall puts on a Halloween party filled with live music, freaky sideshows, costume contests, and more. This is one of Amsterdam’s most famed music venues, so great music will definitely be a theme of the night.

Although all these Amsterdam haunts have a lot of hard-partying fun to offer up on Halloween, the city is also home to some real haunts. Check out the Amsterdam Dungeon for some serious spooks on Halloween. The guided tour through this underground world of torture recounts medieval tales of torment from the Spanish Inquisition, as well as a trip through a maze of mirrors and other ghastly displays. With all these options, it is clear that Halloween in Amsterdam is on the rise!
