Queen Beatrix officially
celebrates her birthday
on the 30th of April, originally
the birthday of her mother.

Isn't the Queen lovely?
This day is an opportune occasion for the well-known Orange Craze. The colour refers to the name of the royal family, the House of Orange- Nassau. The city turns into a boundless sea of orange revelry.

makes the city crowded beyond any acceptable norms.
Despite overcrowding, the atmosphere on Queen's Day is traditionally
relaxed and joyful.
I am pleased to invite you to enjoy this fantastic atmosphere !
