7 million tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths all in bloom create a spectacular pallet of color not to mention aroma. This spring garden outside of Amsterdam is only open for a couple of months during the blooming season and each year it is redesigned based on a new theme. This is landscaping and gardening at it’s very best.
Wander around the gardens and view the various green houses, inspiration gardens, and commissioned works of sculpture. Take a canal boat trip to see the never-ending fields in bloom.
