In 2016 only 189 people filed a police report claiming they had been pick-pocketed on King’s Day — down from 807 in 2013, 490 in 2014, and 485 in 2015. Mind you, many people simply do not bother to file a report.

For instance: large-scale, DJ and artist-driven events have been moved to the outskirts of the city, where they can be reached via nearby train stations. Plus, you need tickets to get in. All of the events have long ago sold out.

This means there will be fewer ‘herds’ of people thronging and pushing their way through the city on their way to various events, held at squares and other public locations already filled to capacity.

When it comes to parties, Amsterdam's annual celebration of their monarch's birthday is the ultimate Dutch treat. In a city known for its "anything goes" party vibe, this annual event is the wildest 24 hours of the year. While the laws are more than tolerant the other 364 days, rules practically don't exist on this day as police are strictly forbidden to intervene in the festivities. It's not as if many real crimes occur in the Netherlands, but the cops sure won't shut down your party—whether you're selling your grandma's record collection or dancing in the streets wearing her vintage orange tutu. It's all in the name of a good time and between the costumes, clubs, canals and street parties, the whole city is ****­-bent on having fun, painting the town orange and celebrating all things distinctly Dutch.

Why orange? The flag of the Netherlands is red, white and blue, but orange is the color of the royal family and most everyone embraces this bright, happy color, welcome after a long, gray winter. Even the flags are adorned with a mini­-flag of orange.
