Remembrance & Liberation Day in Amsterdam

Amsterdam joins the rest of the Netherlands on 4 May when its citizens pause to pay their respects to the victims and fallen soldiers of World War II, as well as more recent military conflicts and peacekeeping operations. Then it's time for a national party on 5 May, as the crowds take to the streets to celebrate their freedom on Liberation Day.


All events have been cancelled until 1 September, but you can read about our usual activities and festivities in the articles below to help inspire your future plans.
In the meantime, we'll bring Amsterdam to you!
