Trip Report Tulips and Flowers in the Netherlands

Jump to last reply

Well Bikerscott and I were off on another weekend trip - this time to see the tulips in the Netherlands! Thanks to our cold spring the flowers were at their peak this weekend, a little later than normal, so it worked out perfectly!

We took the Stena Line Dutch Flyer train and overnight ferry (details here: http://www.seat61.com/Netherlands.htm#London ► Amsterdam ) and would highly recommend this way to travel.

We opted to stay in Leiden to be closer to the tulip fields and it was an excellent choice. It is a lovely smaller university city with lots of charm. We cycled the tulips, took lots of photos, spent a day in Amsterdam, ate some great food, and spent a lot of time drinking wine in the sun. All around great weeekend!

Happy spring everyone!
