Victory tour for the Dutch national soccer team after winning the European Champsionship soccer in 1988
Biggest festive event since the liberation
The celebration of the European Champions, which mobilized several millions of Dutchmen, hit its peak during a canal cruise through Amsterdam.
Hundreds of thousands of people had positioned themselves along the canals, in their own boats or on houseboats to be able to see a glimpse of the Dutch national team. On the houseboats in particular, bizarre situations occurred from time to time.
