There will be thousands of tulips available for the picking, thanks to the Dutch tulip growers who prepare the huge garden for National Tulip Day. Every year, the tulips create a gorgeous carpet of color for flower-lovers. Tulip season ends in April in Holland.

Dam Square is a bustling area in Amsterdam. It is only about five minutes away from Central Station.
