The Hague turns orange during Prinsjesdag

Prinsjesdag The Hague, traditionally held on the third Tuesday of September, is the traditional start of the parliamentary year for the Dutch House of Representatives and the Dutch Senate. On Prinsjesdag, the king reads his annual speech in the Knights' Hall; in this speech, the government sets out its most important plans for the coming year. Before reading the speech, King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima go on a tour through the city in the gold or glass carriage, from Noordeinde Palace via Lange Voorhout to the Binnenhof. 

After the members of the royal family have returned to Noordeinde Palace, the balcony scene follows; during this balcony scene, the Royal family is cheered by the people. Experience Prinsjesdag from up close and reserve seats for your guests on the separate grandstand on Lange Voorhout. Interested in grandstand seats? Please contact us!
