Tulips

We are planning a visit to Amsterdam in Spring 2011. When is the best time to see the tulips?

And where are the best places to see them in Amsterdam or the Amsterdam area?

THANKS

It will depend on the weather, of course, but tulips are generally at their best in the month of April. Best place to see them en masse will be at Keukenhof, which is located outside Amsterdam (trips from the city can be organised) and it will be open from 24 March to 20 May 2011: http://www.keukenhof.nl/

Best time for tulips: last week of April till first week of May.

The most well known (and touristy) area is around the keukenhof.

But there are alternatives:

- the top of North Holland, north of Schagen

- further away from Amsterdam in the Noordoostpolder:

happy travels

If you are planning to be here in April 2011, I would suggest that you are here on 30 April, which is Queens Day!! ;-)
