King's day, Kingsday or Koningsdag (as we call it), is a national holiday in the Netherlands. On this day we celebrate the birthday of the King of the Netherlands. It's also a typical occasion for the world-famous Orange Craze. The colour orange is a ubiquitous sight, referring to the name of our royal family, the House of Orange. Everywhere in the city you'll see orange banners, orange coloered foods and drinks and... people dressed in Orange! So don't forget your orange t-shirt when you join us in the Orange Craze on King's Day!!!
Because the Dutch people just like to party, we start celebrating King's Day already on the evening of the day before! Usually we start at 7 p.m. and go on until the morning of King's Day. This is called Koningsnacht, King's Night. There are a lot of different events, some of the best are outside and completely free for everyone! On this night you can enjoy many different parties and move all across the city from one party to another. Planning on celebrating King's Day in Amsterdam? Be sure you don't miss this night!
