The 27th of April is the King’s official birthday. Each year this is celebrated with parties, street markets, concerts and special events. On the 27th the ITC and her partners introduced over 150 newcomers in the Utrecht region to this typical Dutch tradition. The participants played dutch games went on a characteristic canal cruise through the historic heart of Utrecht, enjoyed a taste of the Dutch cuisine, and met fellow internationals new to this region. As a surprise, our mayor Jan van Zanen went on board of the boat and introduced himself and welcomed the participants new to the city of Utrecht.
