Strolling through the Orange Market

King's Day is the day to look for second-hand gems. Endless wandering during the Orange Market along all the rugs, tables and stalls looking for that one item. You will pass by toys, clothes, furniture, accessories and much more! The Oranjemarkt is located between the Grotekerksbuurt towards the Visstraat and on the Sarisgang. In the Nieuwstraat, Hofstraat, Vriesestraat and Vrieseplein, residents sell their stuff in front of the door. Tip for families: in the Kloostertuin there is a children's free market.

Orange coziness

Of course, the entire city center will be colored orange and there will be lots of other fun activities and things to do. Enjoy a (orange) drink on the terrace and order an (orange) pastry or swing during the orange band show from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on the Statenplein. Many cafes and restaurants are also doing something extra for Koningsdag and in the nice Dordt stores you can score orange items. In short: the Dordrecht city center is filled with orange fun on King's Day!
