The Flowers of Amsterdam region offers visitors an eye-popping splash of colour and some fascinating history. Every spring, the iconic Bollenstreek (Bulb strip) attracts admirers from around the world as millions of tulip bulbs burst into bloom. Meanwhile the reclaimed polder landscape is home to historic villages and fascinating museums which tell the story of the Dutch struggle against the water. With impressive green landscapes, historic estates and gardens, recreational lakes, forests and vast flower fields, the area is ideal for a day out in the open air.
