Holland is famous for it’s flowers and from mid March through mid May, the countryside is transformed into a sea of flowers including crocus, daffodils, hyacinths and of course tulips. April is the most popular time to visit Holland to see the tulips.
There is a famous park in Holland called “Keukenof” between Amsterdam and The Hague with more than 7 million flowers blooming during the flower season. There is also a flower parade in April, where you can see 20+ beautifully decorated floats. In addition to the wonderful flowers, there’s lots to experience in this region and our friends at AMA Waterways have a fabulous river cruise called “Tulip Time” that highlights the park and windmills along with other fab. activities such as chocolate making and Belgian Waffle making and many more.
