Tourists flock to Dutch tulip fields to take Instagram-worthy travel snaps

Considering jetting off on holiday?

You might want to take a leaf out of travel bloggers’ books and head to the tulip fields of Holland.

The country is famous for his pretty petal fields – and Instagrammers make the most of the picturesque scenery by taking photos.

Scores of tourists enjoy walking through the fields and posing against the flowery backdrop.

Alternatively, holidaymakers can soak up the setting on bike tours or boat trips.

If a Netherlands getaway has piqued your interest, here are the best places to see blooming bulbs.

There are several bulb field regions in Holland.

One of the most famous is nestled between Leiden and Den Helder, just behind the North Sea dunes.

The Keukenhof Flower Fields boasts rows of tulips, as well as daffodils and hyacinths.

On April 25, 2020, the location will also host a flower parade.

The Bloemencorso Bollenstreek sees a line of petal-covered floats wind through a 40km route.

Hundreds of thousands of spectators watch the festivity, which takes place in the municipality of Noordwijk.

Musical acts and luxury car displays also draw tourists to the festivity.

And for those who don’t make it to the big day, there are other events held from April 22 to 26.

It’s not tricky for tourists to visit Keukenhof – as it’s around 20-30 miles from Amsterdam.

To get to the gardens you can book a coach, tour group or hire a car.

Entrance tickets can be picked up from £15.

Note that Keukenhof opens on March 21 – you can expect to see tulips there until May 19.

For those who want to head further than the Netherlands’ capital, Flevoland could be a shout.

Noordoostpolder and Oostelijk Flevoland are tulip fields hotspots.

Alternatively, you can head to North Holland where you’ll find Enkhuizen and Breezand.

All offer fabulous flower experiences – as well as the opportunity to take the perfect selfie.
