Depends a bit on the weather, but late March, April and first week of May would probably do.

i am thinking more like mid-april to early may..and mid-april is iffy if the preceding winter was especially cold.

Second half of april best chance. But it all depends on the weather this winter. Warm weather the peak time will be early, cold weather the peak time will be later. Based on the last couple of years the last 2 weeks of april are your best chance.

Around 30th of april / frist week of may the tulips are headed (taking the flower off to grow the bulb more)

As my fellow Amsterdammers noted, end of april/ beginning of march.

You can then also visit the Keukenhof where beautifull flowers are exhibitioned every year.

Check: www.keukenhof.nl/en/

If you decide to visit Amsterdam at the end of april, you are in for an extra treat.

On the 30th of april we celebrate Queensday (Our queens b-day), the whole city will be partying. Bring an orange outfit and you will have the time of your life ;)

Have fun!

You mean beginning of May, I assume ;-?

I have chosen to land in Amsterdam on the 3rd week of April over 15 times and never was disappointed by the tulips' blooming time.

So if we are in Amsterdam April 7-9, no sense visiting Keukenhoff fields because it would be too early?
