Yesterday saw the opening of the highest mailbox in the Netherlands, located on the top of the Domtoren. Poor postal worker, having to climb all those stairs! That might make me want to go a bit postal, as well!
But seriously, from now until 5 May, anyone who takes a guided climb up the Domtoren will receive a special card that can be placed in this mailbox. However, the final recipients of the mail are limited to Queen Beatrix and soon-to-be King Willem-Alexander. People can have their personal messages delivered directly to the royal family.
Why? Well, don’t forget that Willem-Alexander will become king in just a few more days on 30 April. This allows well-wishers to send a nice message to the outgoing queen and the incoming king.
