Some places are just better seen in spring. Warmer weather, greenery, flowers blooming, and less tourists than summer make many places in Europe better to visit in spring.
One such place? The Netherlands.
With charming windmills, colorful tulips, idyllic canals and warm days, spring is a great time to cruise the canals of Amsterdam, cycle the flower fields of southern Holland, or wander Rotterdam.
The flower fields, in particular, are not to be missed if you visit in springtime. There really aren’t words to describe the flower fields- rows and rows of colorful daffodils, hyacinth and tulips, it’s extraordinary.
And, although I’ve been to Amsterdam many times, a recent spring visit was my first time visiting other Dutch cities- Rotterdam and Zaandam.
Even though my visit was short, I loved sitting canal side for my morning coffee, seeing the country’s iconic flowers in full bloom, and hanging at outdoor beer gardens with friends, revelling in the spring sunshine.
