King Willem-Alexander will celebrate his birthday on Wednesday 27 April in Maastricht. The king and his family members will walk through the city centre from 11.00 am to 1.00 pm. On the route, we will show the royal family what our city and region have to offer through a surprising and versatile programme. The programme is in line with the theme of King’s Day 2022: ‘Leef Maastricht!’ (Live Maastricht). Which, not coincidentally, also means 'dear Maastricht' in Maastricht dialect.
