  1. The only time I have been to Amsterdam was in April and everything about it was perfect- the weather and all the gorgeous tulips around. Definitely one of the best girls’ trips.

  2. I would love to visit there in mid-April for peak tulip time. Taking a day trip to Lisse or Keukenhof would be a must, the only draw back are the other tourists. King’s Day celebrations seem like quite the party, another draw for visitors.

  3. I feel like Amsterdam is always perfect! I have not been in April, but seeing the tulips in full bloom is definitely something I want to do one day!

  4. I never really thought about it, but it definitely makes sense that spring would be the perfect mix of good weather without tons of tourists for Western Europe. I also never knew about Kingsday, but I think it would be awesome to experience that. How interesting that the iconic color for it is orange!

  5. Tulip festivals and Kings Day sound like two holidays I can definitely get behind. Amsterdam sounds like a ton of fun, it’s hard to believe I have never been there.

  6. I’m seriously thinking about visiting Netherlands in April for the tulip fields so your post couldn’t have come at a better timing. I think I’ll try to avoid Easter though so I wouldn’t have to pay a premium for hotels. Kingsday, on the other hand, sounds like quite the celebration that I’d definitely want to experience. I’ve bookmarked this for later. Thank you!
