Amsterdam & other cities

The Netherlands

The first National Remembrance Day (Nationale Dodenherdenking) was held on Amsterdam's Dam Square in 1945 and this is still the focus of the city's ceremonies.

Head to the square to join members of the Dutch royal family, major political names and military representatives for the ceremony, which is built around the traditional bugle call and two-minutes of silence at 20:00.
