Spring in Holland: Windmills and tulip fields

There is no better time to visit the Netherlands than in the spring. When we think of Netherlands, there are two things that comes into our minds: the mills and fields of tulips.


On May 12, the Netherlands will celebrate the National Day of the mills, in which 600 windmills and watermills are open to visitors. For the occasion, owners will decorate their own mills and organized tours and activities. The National Day of mills is the same day as the National Day of cycling. That way, it’ll be easier to combine a bike tour with the visit of a few mills. To discover the bike routes and mills, just contact the tourist office premises.


Until May 20, you can take a shuttle service to “hop on, hop off” from the activities from Thursday to Sunday, which covers the distance from the town Noordwijk to the park Keukenhof in Lisse. This ride through the tulip fields in bloom will surely be one amazing trip. Tickets can be purchased on the bus, or booked on the site.
