Each year in the 2nd weekend of September is one of The Netherland's premier cultural events. About 4000 historical buildings throughout the country are open free of charge during Open Monument Day. There are also many additional activities such as guided tours, exhibitions and musical performances. Around 900,000 visitors take advantage of this event, organised by local communities and is co-ordinated by the national not for profit "Open Monumentendag" organisation.
