King's Day

Rating
Everyone knows the Dutch love to party but many still don’t realise to what extent the city of Amsterdam comes alive with the celebration of King’s Day. Formerly known as Queen’s Day until her resignation last year, up to one million people will flock to the city to party with the locals for what is fast becoming the world's largest street party! Orange is a must. One of our favourite cities and our favourite colour. We love King's Day!

DAY 1: AMSTERDAM

Welcome to the biggest street party in the world! After checking in and getting your kit, we head out together for dinner, an orientation of the infamous Red Light District and maybe a few drinks to kick the party off. (D)

DAY 2: AMSTERDAM

Today is the warm-up for King’s Day but with any excuse for a party, the Dutchies can't quite wait for the big day and so King’s Night (the night before) can be just as crazy. Brace yourself to party like the Dutch do! Today is a good chance to check out some of the big sights in town before the party gets started – a visit to the Heineken Experience to learn about (and try!) the famous Dutch Nectar, or take in Van Gogh's works at his nearby museum, or maybe a visit to the infamous Der Wallen Red Light District to see the city's alternative side? We take a bike tour out to a traditional cheese and clog making factory in the countryside riding along the banks of the river Amstel. Tonight, your Guide will lead you out to start the night's parties. (B)

DAY 3: AMSTERDAM

The day we've all been waiting for! We don't want to miss a second of this crazy Dutch tradition. From the early morning the city is literally flooded in a sea of orange as the streets erupt in celebration. Queen’s Day originally was the celebration of the birthday of Queen Wilhelmina (1880-1962), on August 31. But after 1948 Koninginnedag (Queen’s Day) moved to April 30 (the birthday of Queen Juliana). When the previous Queen Beatrix (whose birthday is in January) succeeded Juliana in 1980, she decided to keep the holiday on April 30 as a tribute to her mother, but, more importantly, because the weather in April is much nicer than in January! Now her son, Willem-Alexander has taken over the reins of government and his birthday is on the 27 April!

With live free stages on every square in the city and special events in every bar, canal boat and club, the city is one giant orange party, and what's more, the Dutch let down all their trading laws for a day too so the city becomes a giant street market where you can buy ANYTHING at really cheap prices. Awesome. (B)

DAY 4: AMSTERDAM

Time to say goodbye, check out. Remember to spread the love :) (B)
