While Amsterdam is the most famous city in the Netherlands, the rest of the country is full of interesting vibrant flower gardens, quaint villages, and windmills. Spring is the most popular time to visit and the tulips and other bulb flowers are spectacular. In addition, the Dutch villages and windmills contribute to a picture-perfect spring cruise vacation.

The Floriade, a once-every-decade horticultural event was held in Zuid Holland from April through October 2002. Keukenhof Gardens is known as the world's largest flower garden. It is open only 8 weeks each year from late March to May. The gardens are one of the Netherlands most popular attractions, cramming in over 800,000 people each year into the 32-hectare park. Keukenhof is well worth the crowds and I think you will agree when you check out my photos below. Scroll down the page to find links to photos from around the Netherlands and information on cruising this small, picturesque country.
