Get ready for a festival of colour. This spring the Rijksmuseum’s gardens will burst with a brilliant array of magnificent tulips. From extravagant pink and yellow to mysterious dark purple blooms; from a field of flaming red tulips to a charming carpet of multi-coloured blossoms.
Every year many tourists visit the Keukenhof to see all kinds of tulips. But wouldn’t it be a great idea to see the tulips in the city of Amsterdam as well? Landscape architect Saskia Albrecht decided after visiting the Tulip Festival in Istanbul to organize a tulip festival in the city of Amsterdam.
Just a little reminder that the National Tulip Day 2016 is held in Amsterdam this Saturday, the 16th of January.
Autumn is in full swing now and we are heading towards the winter. An interesting time to travel to the Netherlands. The summer crowds have gone and some very interesting exhibitions and activities are available.
