Little Prince Day? Don’t you mean Kingsday?
Most international students studying in the Netherlands will have heard of Kingsday. That one day a year when most of the Netherlands dresses up in orange clothes and celebrates the King’s (or Queen’s) birthday by partying in the streets. But Little Prince Day? No, that’s less well known.
To help prepare international students for Little Prince Day and the start of the Dutch political year, ProDemos, Prinsjesfestival and Leiden University are organising an exclusive event om Monday the 20th of September. You get a crash course on Dutch politics and can aks all their questions to a ProDemos guide. The guide then takes you on a walking tour along several royal sites in The Hague, such as the King’s Office and Noordeinde Palace. By the end of the program, you are fully informed and ready to experience Little Prince Day the next day!

Registrations open on 1 September via this link. Please note that there are limited spots available.
Prinsjesfestival is held yearly in The Hague, the week before and on prince’s day itself. During Prinsjesfestival we celebrate that we are a democracy. In other words a country in which everyone counts. That’s why the festival includes substantive and festive activities. In this particular way Prinsjesfestival aims to create a feast for everyone. From those who are politically involved to those who visit The Hague for conviviality.Read more about Prinsjesfestival
