Tulips, clogs and windmills ( 15/03/2016 )

The spring is coming and if you haven't booked your spring weekend yet, it's about time. Are you thinking about a weekend in Amsterdam you better hurry finding a hotel  in downtowm since the tulip blossoming coincide with the King's Day in late april with a lot of people coloring the streets in orange.  

Apart from great and interesting food in trendy restaurants all around Amsterdam you just have to take a canal cruise and visit some of the interesting museums. A visit to Keukenhof just outside Amsterdam to see all kind of different colored tulips up close is another must do. Don't forget to rent a bike and go for a ride around the surrounding tulip fields which is just an amazing experience.

Another recommendation outside Amsterdam is to catch the regional train for a 15 minutes trip to Zaandam for another bike tour. This is more like the old Netherlands with beautiful villages by the canals and historic windmills. It's also here In Zaandam by the train station you find the beautiful but totally different Inntel Hotel which is an attraction and given photo spot in itself!
