Greater Amsterdam has a lot to offer — from picturesque villages to miles of sandy beaches, and from the unique waterland landscape to windmills, tulip fields, castles, and so on.
Since downtown Amsterdam is getting increasingly crowded, the city’s tourist office has been marketing the joys of metropolitan Amsterdam.
Keukenhof, the world’s second largest flower garden, is open just eight weeks a year.
Yet it remains one of the most popular tourist attractions outside Amsterdam, and one of the top excursions in the Netherlands.
Learn when the tulips are at their best, the best days and times to visit, and what the name Keukenhof means.
In 2020, Keukenhof will be open from March 21 through May 10. Yes, just 8 weeks = 51 days! The theme is ‘A World of Colours’, celebrating the fact that visitors come from every country and culture.
CoBraA, an art movement brought about in Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam by the likes of Karel Appel and Coneille has played an exceptional role in the developement of modern art in Holland.
