About New & Noteworthy in Amsterdam
This year marks the 160th anniversary of Vincent van Gogh's birth. His namesake museum is temporarily closed for refurbishment but you can still see his paintings at the Hermitage Amsterdam. Fortunately the Van Gogh Museum reopens on Museumplein on 1 May 2013.
Koninginnedag (Queen's Day) on April 30 is the country's biggest celebration and particularly lively in Amsterdam. This year is extra special because Her Majesty Queen Beatrix announced her upcoming abdication from the throne which means the official abdication and succession of the new king and queen will take place this year.
