The big Tollwood New Year’s Eve Party

At Tollwood the Countdown for New Year’s starts hours before midnight: on 5 floors it’s all about dancing, biding farewell to the Old and welcoming the New Year. The midnight walz ringing over all tents and over the beautifully decorated exterior area at 0 am is a traditional highlight of Tollwood’s New Year’s Eve Party. Happy New Year!
