The Kinr of the Netherlands makes his yearly trip to Amsterdam's Dam Square. His Highness brings together family, students and political dignitaries of city, province and state.


Flowers are laid at the National Monument on the east end of Dam Square. A young student whom represents the country's young, reads a poem of their hand.
