Visit the spectacular and colourful Dutch Bulbfields with Great Rail Journeys.
Easily one of the most enduring images of The Netherlands, the Dutch bulbfields are a wonderful sight; a vibrant sea of flowers in many dazzling colours. In particular the spectacular Keukenhof Gardens make for a spellbinding attraction. These famous gardens stretch out across 80 acres of parkland, which also includes ponds and landscaped gardens.
They boast a wonderful choice of flower displays, along with many greenhouses and even a working windmill. Of course the tulips - as one of the Netherlands' most iconic emblems - feature most prominently, and approximately seven million tulip bulbs are planted here each year. There is also a marvellous display of orchids, daffodils and crocuses amongst others, making the incredible Dutch bulbfields a truly unmissable sight.
Our holidays to the Dutch bulbfields also visit some of the Netherlands' other great highlights, such as the incomparable, canal-lined city of Amsterdam and the famous cheese-producing town of Edam. Other great highlights include lesser-known gems such as Zanse Schaans, a fascinating open-air museum that faithfully depicts rural Dutch life in the 17th and 18th centuries. And of course, our tours include some of the finest railway journeys in Europe, with modern trains such as the Eurostar from London, and charming nostalgic heritage lines like the Medemblik Steam Train, which travels through the idyllic Westfrisian coastal countryside.
