Take out your orange clothing from the closet and celebrate King Willem-Alexander’s birthday in a festive way. Koningsnacht (King’s Night) starts tonight in several cities, such as Utrecht, The Hague, and Rotterdam.
The day itself, Koningsdag (King’s Day), remains the most popular with flea markets, games, and festivals.
The Royal Family joins in the celebration, visiting a different location each year. The lucky city and its surrounding areas present themselves in a festive and characteristic way.
This year, it’s Rotterdam’s turn, and the traditional visit will be broadcast live on television by NOS.
Enjoy and have fun on this national holiday!
