March sees the beginning of springtime in Amsterdam. After the long winter, the sun starts shining and the outdoor terraces come back to life. The country is slowly waking up. The days are getting longer, and the weather is getting a little bit warmer. March is ideal because the crowds are not here just yet as the start of Spring emerges.
1: Tulips are on the way!
Tulips are one of Holland’s most famous exports, and come spring time in Amsterdam you can’t move for these pretty petals. You’ll find plenty of flowers around the city, but for the full floral experience nothing beats a trip to Holland’s world famous flower strip, or ‘bollenstreek’. Head to Keukenhof Gardens between March and May for the best blooms. Get in touch with us and we can book you a private Countryside and Windmill Tour, or be one of the first to do our Keukenhof Gardens private tour.
