Are you a fan of tulips? Would you like to see hundreds of thousands of tulips at the most famous square in Amsterdam, Dam Square? Come to Amsterdam for the annual Tulip Day, arranged on the third Saturday of January every year.
The event is completely free, and it normally starts around lunchtime and goes on until 16.00 or something like that. During this period you can look at beautiful tulips, and you are even allowed to bring some tulips with you back to the hotel room or to your home.
The arranger of the event is TPN (Tulip Promotion Netherlands), and they arrange similar events not only in the Netherlands, but also in the United States, Belgium, and other countries.
