Spring is the best time to see the famous Dutch flowers in their complete splendor.
It is not only in the countryside where you’ll find large colourful fields of crocuses, daffodils, hyacinths and tulips, but also in Amsterdam’s urban area you’ll be amazed by the vibrant colours of the Dutch renowned tulips which, together with the charming canals, provide picturesque views of the city.
