In late April - early May tulips bloom in the Netherlands. To see the bloom was our goal for a long time and finally we were able to get here. The fact is that flowering lasts only a few weeks and the weather was bad on the few days when we could come in the past years.

There are many places in the Netherlands where you can see tulips. The fact is that the flower business is an important economic component. The Netherlands export more than 50% of flowers in the whole world, which means that many farmers grow them in all parts of the country.

The easiest option is Keukenhof Park, located near Amsterdam. Though for us it’s too touristy.

Therefore, we found a more interesting option. If you are traveling by car, then you need to visit Noordoostpolder. The territory of this municipality was created artificially, with the help of drainage, during the Second World War. Since this was a new territory its planning was done from scratch. The main city of Emmeloord was located in the very center and many small settlements around it.

We spent the night in Emmeloord at the hotel Het Hart van Marknesse (booking.com). Very convinient place for car travelers, big parking lot and a big supermarket in 20 meters. Though Wi-Fi in the room was very poor and we had to sit in the hall.

Tulip route has a length of about 100 kilometers and therefore is only suitable for a car. If you do not have one, then there is only one option is to come to Emmeloord and rent a bike or scooter. But we would not recommend cycling here. The fact is that route is long and there are not many tulips fields. By car you can get from one location to another in 10 minutes and by bicycle it may take a lot of time. Therefore, if you want guaranteed tulip fields, then go to Keukenhof, you can also ride a bike there.

Since every year farmers can plant tulips in different places, the route changes a little. Before the trip visit these websites https://www.vvvnoordoostpolder.nl/en/tulpen, https://www.stepnop.nl/tulpenfestival/ and search a map.

We found the most beautiful place here N 52 43.912 E 5 35.780, the road to the dam is dirt, but you can drive.
