Every year I have a trip to Germany, Bonn with my team. Since we had a weekend for our own the idea was to go somewhere else in Europe to see. The decision was taken – Amsterdam shall it be. Not purely because it is the nicest city but pretty easy to drive to from Bonn/Cologne.
Netherlands has still a monarchy and since 1885 with the birth of queen Wilhelmina Queens Day was celebrated every year and with the queens changing the days would change. Since last year the Oranjes have a king – Willem-Alexander. Well his birthday happens to be on 27th April and it happened to be the day we went to Amsterdam not knowing that the city was completely closed for cars and decorated in orange. So the first Kings Day and we lucky tourists are there.

Crazy the Oranjes 😉
See the couple on the roof of the car ? 😉 cozy
Yes we also had some culture besides the Beer and sausages – the Rijksmuseum – recommended.
