Kingsday Amsterdam


If you’re not Dutch and you are visiting our country on the 26th/27th of April, you’re in for a treat… Kingsday 2025 (previously called Queensday) is a true happening in the Netherlands.

Just to explain for those who aren’t familiar with Kingsday, a little introduction. The Dutch basically celebrate the Kings birthday and everybody gets a day off work. Firstly, there are a large number of flea markets. It’s all happening throughout the country but the city of Amsterdam is probably the biggest when it comes to selling “stuff” on the streets. Secondly, there are very cool parties just about anywhere! We’re here to tell you about the best Kingsday parties in Amsterdam for 2024!
