An event that should be high on any traveler’s bucket list, experience the canal and cannabis capital of the Netherlands, Amsterdam, during the countrywide celebration of Kings Day. Kings Day or Kongigsday in Dutch, sees the city turn orange, with revelers from across the globe exploring the flea-markets, street food, drink stalls, boat parties and partying all night, all day and all night again, many party-goers say the night before Kings Day, King’s Night, is much more fun.
Join the hundreds of thousands of people who descend on Amsterdam and dressed in your finest orange, crawl from pub to pub celebrating the King’s birthday, stopping only to dance to the live music playing in all the mains squares.
All across the streets and canals of Amsterdam. You can explore the city by foot, wandering around the flea-markets and food stalls or, hop on a party boat or barge and cruise the canals, enjoying overlooking the crowded madness of the streets, with a nice cold drink and party atmosphere.
Amsterdam is full of great hostels but surrounding King’s Day these book up months in advance, and become very expensive.
Amsterdam is super easy to fly to from any capital city in Europe, with most flights running daily. Once you arrive at the airport, there are trains every 15 minutes to the center of town.
Otherwise, the Dutch capital belongs to the accessible train network that operates around Europe, or for the cheapest option search for inter-country buses.
When you find yourself in central Amsterdam there’s a very efficient public transport system with metro lines, buses, trains and trams.
After a day and two nights of non-stop celebration, it’d be understandable to just want to crawl up in bed and sleep. But Amsterdam’s such a beautiful, culturally and historically rich city it really is a waste to not spend some time exploring the narrow, cobbled streets of the red light district, tasting the many Dutch delicacies such as stroopwafels; chocolate; cheese; and bitterballen, visiting museums like the Anne Frank Haus.
Hang out at some of the coffee shops and bars in Amsterdam, where the clientele go for anything but a coffee.
Come and celebrate the day King Willem Alexander was born on April 27, 2022 in the city that knows how to party.
