King's Day

What is Kingsday?

The Netherlands was already a pretty awesome place before they decided to throw a public holiday and national celebrations on the King’s birthday, known as King’s day. Now, the rest of the world can simply look on in awe as thousands upon thousands of people swarm the streets on the 27th of April for one of the most epic events of the year. No other monarch on earth can rival the sheer party-mania that is found on the streets of Amsterdam during this time. Like so many other things, the Dutch are also good at throwing a party. Already one of the most fabulous cities worldwide, Amsterdam transforms into an epic open air venue for over 1 million visitors, all dressed in orange and all ready to party.

With Yes-Trips you will be able to get the most out of your King's Day experience as you can put together the perfect package for you and your friends.

Your stay in Amsterdam

Just like last year we have taken over a hostel, right next to the city center. Students from all over the world gather here to meet and enjoy a once in a lifetime event.

King's Day is the biggest party in the Netherlands with over a million people coming to Amsterdam. It is easy to get lost in the crowd or find the best place. No worries though, Yes-Trips has you covered.

During the day the city explodes and street parties are held all over the city. The biggest are usually situated around the Rembrandtplein and Leidseplein. Our guides will be able to show you the best spots to party.

Possibly the most famous part of King's Day is the traffic jam on the canals caused by the many party boats that go through the main canals. Most of them are equipped with massive sound systems to make sure people on the streets can enjoy the party as well. Want to experience the most traditional part of King's Day?
