National Holiday
Not a Public Holiday


  • The Netherlands has two World War II Remembrance Days. Neither are annual official holidays, though some establishments may close.
  • May 4th: honors all those who died in the war, and is similar to Remembrance Day and Veteran's Day.
  • May 5th: Liberation day is a national holiday once every 5 years (next in 2015). The day commemorates the defeat of German forces in 1945. It may be celebrated every year, but since 2000, it is an official holiday only once every 5 years.
