Tulips in Holland
By Viator, August 2010
Fortunately you won’t need to mortgage your home to witness stunning springtime arrangements of tulips. Beautiful Keukenhof Garden, outside Amsterdam, is famous the world over for its amazing springtime displays, with millions of varieties in every imaginable color set in lovingly landscaped grounds.
You can choose to enjoy this feast for the eyes for as long as you’d like, or maybe you’d like to combine your trip with Amsterdam highlights. Visit Keukenhof in the morning, then tour the city’s famous canals and end up in the Van Gogh Museum, featuring the world’s largest collection of works by the great Post-Impressionist artist. Or follow up your visit with a comprehensive afternoon tour which takes in top city sights including the Royal Palace, the “Skinny Bridge” and a diamond factory.
And you don’t even need to visit in spring to see tulips. Everything you associate with Holland is available on a great one day tour which takes you to the enormous hothouses where millions of tulips are cultivated, offering the sight of vast rows of brilliantly colored blooms stretching before you.
What else do you think of when you think Holland? Windmills! The mighty sails of these early wonders of mechanized farming are a feature of the landscape and make an impressive sight as they loom up out of the flat landscape. Your day-long tour will also cover the majestic dikes which represent Holland’s mastery of the sea as well as the country’s famous cheeses and other artisanal products.
