King's Day

King’s Day (Koningsdag) marks the celebration of King Willem-Alexander’s birthday. It’s a national holiday where the entire country celebrates all day (and all weekend!), with street parties, boat parties, traditional gatherings, endless flea markets and everyone wearing orange of course! It’s the party of the year with uniquely Dutch flair.
