Head to the Netherlands this spring to see the country in full bloom, as the iconic rainbow fields of tulips spread for miles and miles, painting the horizon with endless colours.
The iconic tulip fields of Holland
The northern reaches of the Netherlands come alive every spring with endless rows of tulips.
A rainbow of colours
The tulips come in a wide variety of colours (in fact, they come in every colour of the rainbow) and are planted in perfect rows and patterns for visitors to enjoy.
Canals and windmills
Holland's tulips make for one of the most visually stunning landscapes in Europe.
Explore by bike
A wonderful way to absorb the beauty of the colours is to take a walk or a bike ride around the endless fields of rainbow stripes and patterns.
To take in the divine colours and fragrances of Holland in bloom, visitors should head to Keukenhof Garden near the town of Lisse. The gardens are open during the peak blooming season; from March 23 to May 21.
