Queensday Amsterdam on 30th of April 2008:

An official holiday, on which the Queen's birthday is celebrated. Amsterdam turns into a huge open air flea market / garage sale, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. Public transport in the city is difficult, trains to and from Central Station are crowded: (site will be opened in a new window). Nevertheless, an experience!!!
