Join WTA on a magical trip to Amsterdam during the largest festival of the year, King’s Day! Amsterdam is the Netherlands’ capital, known for its artistic heritage, elaborate canal system, and home to the Van Gogh Museum. You will enjoy many historic buildings and the most picturesque sites this city has to offer.

If you have ever wanted to experience authentic festivities in Amsterdam, here is your chance! King’s Day (or ‘Koningsdag’ in Dutch) is an orange-filled celebration for the King’s birthday, held every year. Orange is worn as a show of pride for the Dutch royal family – the House of Orange-Nassau. Orange wigs and face paint also get a big thumbs up – the wackier, the better! Yes, you may look crazy, but thankfully so will everyone else! The Dutch also have a knack for tulips – fields full of magnificent flowers will be a sight to see as we visit the famous Keukenhof Gardens and take in the glorious scenery. Do not skip out on this festive, spring journey!
