A Queens Day delight in Amsterdam

April 30th each year in Amsterdam means only one thing, Queens Day, and for a day full of entertainment, drinking and general merriment, this highlight of the Dutch calendar would be extremely difficult to beat.

There is something for everyone to enjoy because apart from the entertainment, there are flea markets in which the locals excel themselves by selling all manner of unique items, face painting and games for the children with food to die for!

Don’t forget the evening before the main event, Queens Night, which is something very special in itself but one thing is for sure, the whole occasion is something that will be remembered for a very long time.
