King's Day - Koningsdag, Amsterdam: 8 reviews and 10 photos

  Amsterdam, party capitol of The Netherlands
by Pavlik_NL

Especially in summertime, Amsterdam organises many festivals. Queensday is the largest party and colours the whole town in Orange. Our national holiday (birthday of the queen) is at the 30st of April.
The gayparade is a show-off how funny tolerance can be. This parade of boats over the canal exhibits the gay-society of Amsterdam.
The 'Uitmarkt' is the opening of the cultural season and presents all cultural activities in town. Many podiumacts are to be found around the museumsquare.
Once every five years 'Sail Amsterdam' brings many tallships, sailingboats, steamboats and everything that floats to the Amsterdam harbour. For sailingfans a must to attend to at least once in their lifes.
