Throwback to yesterday.... 🎈👑 🧡Traditionally, April 27 (King’s Day) is one of the most festive days 🎉🎉🧨. If you’ve ever visited Amsterdam on this day, you’ll remember it as one of the most orange holidays 🧡🧡🧡. This year all this was different for a very good reason 🙏. King and country were forced to celebrate indoors.
The few who did celebrate outside, followed the Social distancing guidelines 👍👏👏👏

King’s Day in the entire country

On 27 April, all of Holland is a party! From the biggest cities down to the smallest hamlets, the entire country celebrates King’s Day. There are street markets everywhere, where people sell all kinds of miscellany and (home-made) treats. Bands are playing on every street corner, every pub is serving beer outside and all around, people are dancing in their orange outfits. Tradition dictates that the Royal family visits one or two municipalities in Holland on this day, so with any luck, you might see them yourself!

Discover breathtaking castles and gardens

New | Dutch storiesJoin us and discover the most beautiful castles and castle gardens. This is how you experience our land of castles to the fullest.

King’s Day in The Hague

In the city of The Hague, centre of the courts of Holland, King’s Day is celebrated as it should be celebrated, too. Street markets abound here too, of course, and the hustle and bustle is especially spirited around the canals, Statenkwartier and Noordeinde. What The Hague is most known for, however, is King’s Night, the night before King’s Day, when its various squares – Kerkplein, Grote Markt and Plaats, among others – play host to well-known bands and DJs.

King’s Day in Utrecht

In Utrecht, the street markets are open for you to enjoy starting the evening before King’s Day, 26 April, from 18:00 on. On the 27th there is, of course, a deeply convivial atmosphere to be enjoyed, with a myriad decorated boats on the canals and fun parties and gigs on squares such as Domplein, Lucasbolwerk, Mariaplaats, Neude and Janskerkhof.

King’s Day in Eindhoven

Just like in The Hague, Eindhoven has a score of entertaining shows for you to enjoy on its squares the evening before King’s Day: on Wilhelminaplein, Stationsplein and Stadhuisplein. King’s Day itself is especially enjoyable, with street markets around Mathildelaan, Strijp-S and the squares we just named.

King’s Day in Amsterdam

King’s Day is certainly celebrated with tremendous exuberance in the capital of Holland, Amsterdam. Activities abound throughout the city; there is a huge street market of rugs and stalls where people sell all kinds of items and others show off artistic skills. The canals are thronged with boats with partying people, and for those who like a good dance, there are plenty large parties with famous DJs.

Funfairs on King’s Day

In addition to the street markets and music, King’s Day tradition also calls for funfairs. Every year, therefore, there are funfairs to be found in a great many municipalities. The best-known funfairs are those at Dam Square in Amsterdam, Grote Markt square in Haarlem, Schiehaven harbour in Rotterdam and around Lange Voorhout in The Hague.

Travelling on King’s Day

Please remember that King’s Day activities usually occur in the city center. The festive markets, parades and festivals may mean that road are closed down. We recommend travelling by public transport on King’s Day.
