Important dates of a country are always good to remember. The Netherlands, as with every other country on this planet, has different important days and holidays than the next country. When you are visiting you would want to know which dates are important to Dutch people, so you can blend into the crowd and not stand out (in a bad way).

In general these days below are special days and almost everyone in my country has a day off. Shops will be closed, or are opened less hours than usual. Especially in the smaller cities and villages places will be shut down.
