New Years Day SwimHi Guys,
Im planning a trip to Amsterdam for new years eve and was interested in participating in the new years day swim in Scheveningen, was wondering does anyone know if trains and trams are running on new years day or how would i go about getting to the event from Amsterdam??

1Everything is normal, maybe less frequent - as things are normal in the Netherlands. New schedule ns.nl after 9 December, but probably only sluight differences.
Have a nice swim ... and how do I recognize you on the inevitble tv-covering ???

4Just let me add that the weather on January 1st is usualy very cold and going into the water feels like a very heavy electrical shock. Or is it when you came out? Or both times? However if you don't suffer from a hart condition you will recover. Some people I know keep om doing it every year! Not me!
