Every year, the 27th of April is an excuse for the Dutch to overfill with national pride and burst with a day of festivities across the country for Kings Day. Everyone dresses in orange to celebrate the birthday of King Willem-Alexander and a range of different events take place across the land. Locals take to the streets to sell second-hand goods in what becomes a giant flea market and live performances are held in regional parks.
All of this creates oranjegekte or ‘orange madness’, with people dying their hair, consuming orange food and drinks, and taking to the canals in orange decorated boats.
Koningsdag is always held on the 27th unless this falls on a Sunday. In which case, the celebrations will take place on the 26th instead. For more information or to book your visit to the Netherlands, contact us today.
