Flowers in Holland

The most famous icon of the Dutch Countryside is the tulip. It’s the symbol of The Netherlands and often used in logo’s of Dutch companies. If you want to experience the tulips, it is best to visit Holland in the spring during Tulip Festival. We also recommend the Flower Parade that drives from Noordwijk to Haarlem every year in April. But the Netherlands has even more types of flowers. Below, we have collected the most popular flowers and related activities for you.

Spring flowers (Tulips, daffodils and hyacinths)

One of Holland’s most popular icons, the tulip, will take centre stage at the Tulip Festival Amsterdam. In and around Amsterdam there are several nice tulip farms that are open with show gardens, tours and picking gardens.

Summer flowers (Dahlia)

Holland does not only have spring flowers. In summer, too, there are many splendid types of flowers. The most popular summer flower is the Dahlia. This colourful flower can be admired from the beginning of August to mid-October.
