queensday AmsterdamQueensday in Amsterdam.

You can´t mis this Dutch festival. Celebrate it during your stay in the apartments from Habitat Apartments. They have a great selection apartments in Amsterdam.

Throughout the Netherlands the Dutch celebrate Queen's Day, actually the Queen Mother's birthday, with a national party. Amsterdam crowds dressed in orange enjoy citywide open-air festivities, all day and right through the night until the evening of the following day.

The main areas of activity in Amsterdam are Damrak, Leidsestraat, Rokin and Spui. Vondelpark caters for children and bands play on Prinsengracht and Rembrandtsplein. Gay celebrations are centred on the Homomonument and Reguliersdwaarsstraat. There are also parades, craft shows, flea markets, children's parties, street theatre and fireworks.

For those who love second-hand shopping, all street trade is unregulated, giving rise to a nationwide car-boot sale. If you are a royal-watcher, there is always the chance to catch sight of Queen Beatrix, who chooses one or two cities or towns to visit each year.
