Amsterdam for the Spring Tulips
The Keukenhof is coming and you can save a Euro or two by buying your tickets directly from the vendor, Ticketbar. If you are going to be anywhere near Holland this Spring you should do yourself a favor and look into a visit to the worlds biggest tulip festival, the Keukenhof. The event this year runs from March 22, 2018 to May 13, 2018. Amsterdam is a beautiful city in the Spring, full of youthful energy and very walkable. Getting to the Keukenhof is easy as round-trip buses leave from Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport all day long and there are excellent train connections to and from Schiphol and Amsterdam Centraal station.
