KingsNight and KingsDay are coming up!
I love these days; everybody wears orange and is having a good time while enjoying great music, strolling on one of the many flea markets or trying to get rid of their royal hangovers.
In the past The Hague was only about KingsNight (our KoninginneNach was epic, the best of the country) but times are changing and the last couple of years the city is paying more attention to KingsDay as well. We like!
To help you a little, I made this list of all cool things in Den Haag during these orange hours.
Party like a King
During KingsNight you can enjoy many, many parties all over town. The biggest festivities will be at the Life I Live Festival in the city center, with several stages filled with great music. This huge pre-party starts at 19:00h and will end at 01:00h. After this, head over to De Pier to enjoy Oranje Bal, go to PIP to dance during Kingsnight 2016 or Het Paard for Love Sensez ‘Kingsnight’.
Cure that royal hangover
Oeff the morning after.. Enjoy your royal hangover in style: watch our beloved (yes I like them A LOT) family visiting Zwolle this year. Tuning in at 10:50 at the NOS and watch them do some epic “spijkerpoepen” and other silly, funny, lame or cool things during their visit. Take an aspirin, a shot of Oranjebitter and a orange tompoes and you’re ready for day 2: KingsDay.
KingsDay – go outside
Fresh air is the best cure for a hangover, so I suggest you go outside and visit one of the flea markets over town. The biggest one is at Frederik Hendriklaan. At the Thomsonlaan, the Boekhorststraat, the city center and the Grote Markt will be a lot of activities too.
If you are going to sell your old goods, don’t forget to:
Enjoy these orange hours and make sure to tag your pictures online with #denhaagtogo.
Cheers to the King: hurray, hurray, hurray!
