Perhaps the biggest event in the Netherlands since forever: Koningsdag (King’s Day). Before the inauguration of king Willem-Alexander, this was known as Koninginnedag. The night before King’s Day, known as Kings Night, there are already many parties and events that go on the entire night.
In the morning, almost every city in the Netherlands has transformed into a giant flea market. Both stores and residents can sell their things literally on the streets. During the day and at night there are many outdoor concerts by famous artists to end your Koningsdag slamming.
Still don’t have a clue about what Kings Day means? Just drop by and experience this Dutch tradition, watch this old video about Koninginnedag and ask your Country Manager more about the happening that is Koningsdag
