It’s by far the biggest celebration of the Dutch calendar, but remains virtually unheard of outside of the Netherlands. However, try to have an amble along the canals on 30th April and you’ll wonder if the Dutch have been drinking from their waterways.
Queen’s Day (or Koninginnedag, if you’re going local) is an event surely not to be missed, and hotels are often fully booked over this period. Fortunate, then, that we have a double room to give away for free in our latest competition. Let’s look into that a bit further:
Hotel Casa 400 is an award-winning accommodation situated in the east of Amsterdam, close to Amstel Station. It’s a modern property with an attractive design and a host of facilities to offer. Thanks to the generosity of Casa 400, we can offer you the chance to win a two-night stay plus breakfast, giving you the perfect opportunity to enjoy Queen’s Day in the centre of Amsterdam.
You’ll check in on 29th April, allowing you to revel in some of the festivities that precede Queen’s Day. You can then browse the street stalls in the morning, before making your way through Vondelpark, the Jordaan, De Pijp, and other popular neighbourhoods, taking in the local Queen’s Day celebrations. You can enjoy breakfast on both days and then check out on 1st May, totally queened out and ready for a break from all those oranges.
So, what to do to win this amazing prize?
