Queens Day in The Netherlands Apr 30, 2009
Since 1949 is 30th of April a national holiday in the Netherlands. On this day we celebrate the birthday of the queen. It was the actual birth date of queen Wilhelmina. The present queen, Beatrix, is not born on this date. Still we kept this date.

Queens Day starts with Queens Night (29th of April). In many cities are events and performances of famous people and bars are open all night, doesn't matter which day of the week it is.

Then next day it's Queens Day. The biggest happening is always in Amsterdam and the city the royal family visits.

Every where in the Netherlands are free markets: people sell things they don't need any more. They can make some nice cash money out of it.

In the big cities is it party all over. Music and DJ's on the squares, people dancing, drinking and eating on the streets. No public transport in the city centre most of the time.

Every one is dressed in orange and some people spay paint their hair orange. Orange is the "national" color of the Netherlands.

When you're around, come and join us crazy Dutch in the party :-)

When visiting Amsterdam give your stay an upgrade by planning your trip, if possible, around the 30th of April. This is a major annual event, everybody dressed up in Orange (close to madness!) celebrating the Queens birthday.

This is a tip from an inhabitant, enjoy your stay and believe everything you'll see!
