The streets of Amsterdam
If the sun is shining and temperatures are on the rise, grab some drinks and sit down on the side of a canal. You will see hundreds of boats, big and small, packed with people singing and dancing to music blasting from their speakers. It’s a spectacular sight to see and one you should definitely witness with your own eyes.
Maneuver your way to one of Amsterdam’s bigger parks, Vondelpark or Westerpark, to mix the party vibes with some lovely relaxation on the grass. You’ll see people sitting on blankets everywhere, eating, drinking, and playing instruments and games. It’s a great way to sit back for a minute and process the madness.
For traditional feels and a taste of some good old Dutch ‘gezelligheid’, go to the Jordaan area. You’ll find smaller stages with bands, DJ’s and solo artists showing off their musical skills on squares and even in small streets. Start at the central station and pass through the ‘Haarlemmerdijk’ on the way there, it’s always packed with food and happy people.
Options for the evening of King’s Day brought to you by your Amsterdam Nightlife Ticket are a Tropical Boat Party, Panamas Kingsday After to keep the party from Kingsnight going, Club John Doe at Rembrandtplein and much more!
Wise Words from the King.
Public transport in the city center on King’s Day? Nope. Driving around the canals on your rental bike? Forget it. Walking to the Jordaan area from Amsterdam’s central station takes about 10 minutes on a regular day, but on King’s Day it can take over an hour and that doesn’t include drinking stops. Your feet are the only way of transport on this day so make sure you’re wearing comfortable shoes.
In a jam-packed city where the beer is flowing richly, there never seem to be enough toilets for everyone. Getting to the nearest one might seem like a never-ending journey and finding a quiet spot is not going to happen on this day. So keep your eyes out for open doors topped with ‘WC’ signs. Locals benefit from the shortage of toilets and open theirs to the public. Trust us, there comes a moment where you will gladly pay €3 to go into a total stranger’s house to use their restroom.
