2013 will be the last queensday as the prince will become the king that day.
Koningsdag kingsday will be celebrated at 26 april 2014 (normally 27th april but not on a sunday)
best way to travel is by underground or walk from the trainstations
it is a big fleemarket in the netherlands
people sell thing on the street most of the time it is on 30 april every year
it is a big party and very crowded. there is no or almost no public transport in the centre area it is impossible to drive there because of the crowd.
the advise at the moment is go to the amstel station and take the underground.
music at leidseplein, museumplein, rembrandtplein.
selling things only childern at vondelpark.
other places van baerlestraat, beethovenstraat, apollolaan. in the aera of the muiderpoortstation, linneausparkweg, middenweg. mercatorplein, jan evertsenstraat, rozengracht and many more places also in other cities.
a site from someone that i find on internet. it has pictures. so than you have an idea what is queensday.

take tram 7 or 10 from Leidseplein to pontanusstraat or bus 22 from Central Station to Zeeburgerstraat. Brewery T IJ is here to and a bar and cafe.
Mill was placed here in 1814 but is older was a grain mill

think tram 3 from Museumplein it is close to the Jan van Galenstraat think you can see it from the bridge there.

At the Singel between Koningsplein and the Munt there is a "floating" flowermarket the shops are half on the water builded and not floating. Remember that it is not aloud to bring flowers to all countries.
Sometimes i buy some souvenirs here or at a shop called Xenos
Directions: singel between munt and koningsplein.
munt tramnumbers 4, 9, 14, 16, 24 and 25
koningsplein tramnumbers 1,2 and 5
update now something different is there or nothing :(
at the first flowershop from the koningsplein to munt. look from the bridge to the back of the shop. you see laven who spit water.
laven are from the efteling ( a kind of theme fairytale park in the kaatsheuvel in noord brabant). i think you can compare laven to a kind of gnomes.
Directions: the first shop at the flowermarket at koningsplein.
