Amsterdam Kings Day Private Boat
AMSTERDAM KING’S DAY PRIVATE BOAT TOUR
King’s Day has been a Dutch national holiday since 1959. It is traditionally a celebration of the birthday of the King (or formerly, the Queen), and is taken by the Dutch as an excuse to throw a nationwide street party! These incredible festivities are given a particular flavour by the signature Oranjegekte – orange madness – that seizes the country, as everyone dresses in orange to create a sea of orange in the street!
The King’s Day festivities include vibrant food, delicious drinks, and breathtaking street markets. The Vrijmarkt (literally “free market”) is a nationwide flea market, where people bring unwanted household items onto the street to sell for fun. Haggling is a tradition here, with people paying more than the asking price for fun! Amsterdam’s historic Jordaan Quarter is a favourite location for this charming tradition.
Amsterdam is famous throughout The Netherlands as the place to be on King’s Day. People come from all over the country and beyond to enjoy the amazing party atmosphere. As a result, the city streets are notorious for being a riotous mosaic of orange and is absolutely packed to the bursting. Don’t spend your day forcing your way through the crowds! The Dutch consider the only way to really enjoy King’s Day is from the back of a canal boat, and we’re in firm agreement!
