Introducing the King of Holland – Willem-Alexander; making history

If you are on a short stay in Amsterdam on April 30, 2013, then pack your camera and your comfortable shoes and head to the city centre to witness the anticipated investiture of Holland’s new King, taking place at the Royal Palace and New Church on Dam Square. An event not to miss, it falls on the same day as the last Queen’s Day celebration with happenings all over the city.

Different name, different date but the same great party! King’s Day, or Koningsdag in Dutch, is a major yearly event every April when hundreds of thousands of people take to the streets of Amsterdam donning their best orange outfits to celebrate the birth of the Dutch King. If you are booking a short stay in Amsterdam for King’s Day then you are in for a lot of fun.
