We spend Christmas and New Year's Eve on Ameland. Are the shops, museums, attractions and restaurants on Ameland open on Christmas Eve (24 Dec.), Christmas Day (25 Dec.), New Year's Eve (31 Dec.) and New Year's Day (1 Jan.)?

Most shops, attractions and museums are closed on Christmas Day (25 Dec.) and on New Year's Day (1 Jan.). On other Christmas vacation days they are open during regular opening hours (which can be found on the individual websites).

Most restaurants on Ameland are open on Christmas Eve (24 Dec.) and Christmas Day (25 Dec.) but a reservation is often necessary. Several restaurants are also open on New Year's Eve (31 Dec.) and New Year's Day (1 Jan.), but some of them are closed. Unfortunately, we do not have a list of restaurants on Ameland that are open during the Christmas holiday.
