Europe’s top five destinations for a New Year’s stag do
A stag do is already an epic party in its own right, but why not up the ante by organising your upcoming stag do to coincide with New Year’s Eve – only the wildest and most widely celebrated party in the whole world!
Not only are you guaranteed to find everyone else around you in the party spirit, but it also means you and the boys have no excuse to take the revelry to the next level.
To help you choose your destination of choice, Eventhuse have put together the low-down on the top five European destinations for a New Year’s Eve stag do.
Edinburgh wins when it comes to New Year’s partying in Europe. The traditional Hogmanay celebration takes over the Scottish city in its festive embrace for four days, with events including street parades, Christmas markets, fairs, concerts, street parties and more. But all you stag groups thinking of hitting Edinburgh for a whisky fused New Year, don’t forget your woollies – the temperatures can drop to minus zero!
At the moment, Prague is at the top of the Stag destination hot list and the city is fully prepared to host you lads, with a massive selection of events throughout the city, which just happens to resemble a festive winter wonderland. The nightlife scene on the other hand, is blazing hot around this time of year, with special New Year’s parties in the top clubs and the city’s beautiful people out in throngs in celebration of the turn of the year. Head to our dedicated Prague page to check out what other goodies the city has to offer stag groups.
In true Amsterdam style, the Dutch centre of inclusiveness and liberal thinking, definitely does New Year with a touch of the wild side. Stag groups who really like to party, will find plenty of events to satiate their inner party animal including themed costume raves and street parties galore. The city’s official fireworks display is insanely impressive and when viewed from one of the many bridges, actually makes The Dam look even more beautiful. And for those who want to keep it going after hours, the clubs stay open till long past dawn!
Want to go a bit more off-the-beaten track for an epic low-cost Stag new year party that shuns all the fancy stuff in preference for good old-fashioned fun? The city’s medieval Old Town opens its arms to the people of the city and visitors alike, with an impressive repertoire of free open-air concerts, dance parties, fireworks and live music. Stag groups on a budget or groups looking for an unpretentious, authentic New Years’ experience can sign up here!
Berlin sure knows how to party and New Year is no exception to that rule. At the end of each December in celebration of the coming January, the city rolls out what is known as the “Party Mile” which is where the majority of the city’s New Year’s revelries take place. The Party Mile is a two kilometre stretch running from Brandenburg Gate and Victory Column with bars and food stalls, live music stages, party tents and fireworks when the clocks strike 12. And don’t forget, you’ll be in Berlin where the globally famous, iconic nightclubs stay open long into the following days, so really, this New Year’s party doesn’t need to stop!
