The Best Time To Visit Amsterdam
Although the Netherlands is a fun year-round destination, the best time to visit is during the Spring and Summer. March to mid-May is the best time to see the Springtime display of millions of tulips, daffodils and hyacinths in bloom at the Bulb Fields (near Amsterdam) and at the magnificent Keukenhof Gardens – the areas are blanketed with vibrant colors. It’s a must-see for flower lovers!
June-August are the hottest months and peak tourist season. Winter is also a good time if you want to avoid the crowds – it’s a fun place to be during the Holiday Season.
Queen’s Day (Koninginnedag), a national holiday in the Netherlands), is usually celebrated on April 30. It’s another FUN time to visit, but be prepared for very large crowds celebrating in the streets, at music concerts and along the canals in Amsterdam. Tradition is to wear anything orange – it symbolizes national and royal pride and relates to the Dutch royal family name, The Nassau Family, House of Orange
