Amsterdam on April 30th


I'm planning a long weekend trip in Amsterdam next Spring and I was wondering if April 30th (Queens day) is a good time to go ? Will museum, restaurants and coffee shop be open ?

They will be open, but no public transport in the center. Also the town will be packed, thousands come from all over the country.

Check earlier postings re Queensday.

If you like crowds and partying then it's an excellent time to be in town. If you don't then it is possibly the worst time. Everything will be open as inevd said but you will have to walk everywhere, even bikes can't get through the throngs of people in the city.

First, and most importantly: book your accommodation now!!!

QD is on a Saturday next year and the whole weekend will be a weekend of partying.

On QD itself the tourist attractions will be closed and public transport will be disrupted if available; apart from the Saturday, all restaurants and bars and shops and other attractions will be open as normal on Friday and Sunday. Every bar in the city and some restaurants will be open on QD itself.

Try and avoid travelling into or out of the city on QD itself; it is also a great time to enjoy a unique experience in the city!
