Tulip Festival Amsterdam
Tulip Festival Amsterdam puts the city in full bloom during the month of April. Hundreds of thousands of tulips have been planted at ten locations throughout Amsterdam with the underlying idea ‘a tulip for every Amsterdammer’. It makes a stroll through the city even more beautiful than it already was. Check this website for the locations.
Amsterdam has many public places where you can play outdoor games. You can go to Sarphatipark for a game of table tennis, play tennis in the Oosterpark or get into a game of jeu de boules near the Amstel around the corner of Volkshotel. Perfect for a beautiful spring day. Check this link for different spots in the city.
