Herring in Amsterdam

While herring can be found in Amsterdam throughout the year, the new season starts in late spring. Nieuwe haring, which is the first catch of the season, can be found in all of the herring stands during this time. Some of the shops will even offer a complimentary shot of jenever, which is a Dutch version of gin, as a celebration of the new season.
