Amsterdam and surrounds trip planning, tulip viewing.

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip to Amsterdam for a week in either late April or early May. We will be arriving from either Glasgow or London. Trying to fit the week into a larger holiday.

A must see part of the visit will be a visit to Keukenhof Gardens. Should we hire a car from say the airport and head south first and do a bit of a loop back up to Amsterdam, we do like the countryside touring. Maybe also hiring bikes for the gardens and surrounds.

I am looking for suggestions on where to stay and stop off. I am also aware that it will be Easter time and the Kings day holiday in April also, so will the public holidays impact too much. Or should I avoid them.
