Amsterdam version of Koninginnedag - Queen's Night & and Day! April 29th & 30th! Apr 29, 2008
As the title depicts, yes I am only writing about one celebration in one city of an incredible country, but nothing is too short of a great time when you visit Holland during the end of April. Touring around the country, can be done with minimal money even with a car rental, just shop around make the plans in February. The deals are there because the major touring seasons start in May.
Two days stand out in April more then ever. The celebration Koninginnedag aka. Queen's Night & and Day! A suggestion would be to book the 29th-30th, but arrive early on the 29th and the streets are already buzzing. The(Hollanders) even bared some pretty nasty weather to get dressed up their best to go out and party. Buy your orange at the ton of shops, or come up with something original to dressed in. The night of the 29th is wild. Little bars, with a chill attitudes are pumping music till 7 am.
Then maybe sleep, wake up..Eat some pancakes and make that your first beer of the day because everyone in the restaurant has started. :D
Watch hundreds of thousands walk the designated routes to hear all the Djs and bands playing. Grab a beer at any of the fine pubs selling on the streets. Eat amazing food from around the world from restaurants who turn into on-curb vender's, its definitely an total overload of senses. Things die down by 8 or 9pm, but you can still find little bars that are going later, but they even shut shop by 1 or 2am that night. Trust me, you'll need it. :)
PHOTOS ARE FOUND IN MY PROFILE IF INTERESTED.
(A hostel is perfect for this night cause you don't know if your gonna use it)
