King's Day - Koningsdag, Amsterdam: 19 reviews and 33 photos


<font color=orange size=+1>Queensday</font> in Holland is our national bankholiday, its when we celebrate the birthday of the queens mother. On the 30st of April, it is a complete madhouse in Amsterdam!! About a 1 million people will be scattered all over the city center, most of them dressed in orange, which is our national colour, and everybody is partying.....
This is the best day of the year, it starts the night before queensday, it will not be as busy as on the day itself, but it is a great night out, most people only go back home to have a shower and then party on. On queensday there is a big fun far at the damsquare, which is well known for pickpockets!! there are groups of men surrounding you and then try to empty every pocket you have. But don't let that keep you from coming..... there are markets everywhere, people selling clothing, beer, food and strange orange things, bands everywhere, the best day of the year!!

Directions: There is the fun fare at the Damsquare, a stage with bands playing at the leidse and rembrandtsquare, usually there is a crane from which you can bungee jump at the waterloo-square and between all tho
othercontact: For a good site about queensday
