Amsterdam Tulip Festival

Each spring, the Tulip Festival celebrates one of the most enduring symbols of the Netherlands and Amsterdam. The 2018 motto was ‘a tulip for every citizen of Amsterdam.’

During the month of April, over 500,000 colorful and sometimes rare tulips were on display along city streets, in the gardens of museums, private homes, and other city institutions. A walk or bike ride provided a new and exciting way to experience the city throughout all the quarters.
