The “Who’s the President?” Breakfast brings together Americans, Dutch and people from everywhere to watch the results of the U.S. election. U.S. overseas voters – Republicans and Democrats – stand side by side in the best tradition of American democracy.



The Kurzaal becomes an election headquarters adorned in red, white and blue with flags of the 50 states draped over its balconies. There’s a jazz band, Uncle Sam, a huge TV screen and TV’s and food everywhere – even on the balcony.

A typical American breakfast is served along with some Dutch favorites – coffee, donuts, eggs, toast, lots of coffee and tea, fruit, juices and much more. The breakfast begins at 5 a.m. and is cleared around 8:30 a.m. By 9.a.m, the Kurzaal is the Kurzaal once more.

Come early! After the election results are final and we know “Who the President?” of the United States will be, the breakfast is over. People go to work or back home or to school and continue to talk about the election. They are happy or disappointed and their concern turns to the future and the question: How will the decision of American voters impact on their lives, the lives of Americans and the lives of people everywhere.


Join us at 5:00 a.m. on November 9th at the Grand Hotel Amrȃth Kurhaus,

Gevers Deynootplein 30, 2586 CK The Hague
