So much to see and so many things to do in Amsterdam. There is art everywhere, and architecture, history and food. During springtime, there are the tulips of the Keukenhof, making the Netherlands look like a living impressionist painting. How to take it all in? A tram ride around Amsterdam and then a visit to the world’s largest garden, Keukenhof might just be the answer to all your Amsterdam travel plans.
Historical Tram Ride
Hop on one of the 80 original blue tram wagons that cruised the streets of the city in the mid-1900s, and travel through the city’s unique neighbourhoods and historic monuments. The onboard audio guide will delight you with Amsterdam’s history as the tram clangs and rings its way alongside major historical highlights like the West Church, City Theatre, Museum Quarter, Royal Concertgebouw, the Olympic Stadium, the well-known district called ‘De Pijp’, the spot where the very first Heineken beer was brewed and more. It will be enough to fill your Amsterdam travel photo album with shots of iconic buildings and candid snaps of city life.
Hungry if you get, upgrade and add a gastronomic experience to your tram tour. You will visit Het Amsterdamse Proeflokaal where dig into the flavours of Dutch cuisine. Learn about Amsterdam’s gastronomic history with a movie that will definitely set the mood for the food.
Keukenhof Gardens – from Amsterdam
Board your shuttle bus and head to the highlight of the tour, the Keukenhof Gardens. On the way, you will watch a video presentation about Holland and the world famous gardens. Once you arrive at the destination, collect your skip-the-line Keukenhof Gardens ticket, dodge past the long queues, and experience the sheer abundance of colour spreading across 32 hectares of land.
Flowers delight, inspire and makes the world go round. And in 2019, it is this ‘Flower Power’ that Keukenhof celebrates in its 70th year. It was in 1969 that the Flower Power movement brought hippies and music together to make peace and not war. Where can be a better place to celebrate the strength of the lovely blooms than Keukenhof. As part of the theme, you will see an additional 50,000 bulbs of the wonderful tulips, grape hyacinths and crocuses laid out. So this season, say it with flowers – Make Love, Not War!
