Where to Travel Now- Amsterdam’s Spring Tulip Season

Amsterdam, the city of canals, is popular for its museums, restaurants and shopping.

As we reported earlier this year, Amsterdam is in the travel spotlight in 2013. The famous Rijksmuseum is reopening this month after a 10-year renovation, and there’s no end in sight to the city’s hip hotel additions (the Marcel Wanders-designed Andaz and the Sir Albert, to name a few).

 

One of the best times to travel to the Netherlands? Spring! As the tulips burst into color at Keukenhof Gardens, the largest flower garden in the world, located southwest of Amsterdam. In mid-April, you can witness the blooming of 7 million bulbs planted across 70 acres, with plenty of other flower varieties mixed in. With the dollar gaining in strength against the euro because of the banking crisis in Cyprus, now is truly the time to go!
