Amsterdam's compact center holds an incredible variety of top-notch museums. Get on a rental bike, water taxi, or hop-on hop-off bus, and make your way to these essential cultural attractions.
Stationsweg 166A, Lisse
Keukenhof is open for just two months each spring, making the annual event one of the most popular in Europe. In addition to the flower fields, the park is a kid-friendly venue home to canals, restaurants, a picnic area, maze, playground, and windmill, providing plenty to see and do as you walk around. Consider booking a tour or ticket with skip-the-line access to ensure you get to experience the flowers in bloom, and plan to spend a half or full day exploring the park. Combo tours are available if you'd like to check out additional locations in Holland such as Marken, Volendam fishing villages, or Zaanse Schans.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed...
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. It was simply beautiful and cannot be missed! However, if I could change one thing it would be to allow an hour more to really meander on your own. There simply was not enough time to enjoy such a beautiful place!
