The streets are a little busier come April in Amsterdam, as locals emerge from hibernation to seek out some extra sun. While you’ll see freshly flowered tulips in gardens in and around the city during the month-long Tulip Festival, the most impressive display is a short ride out of town at Keukenhof Gardens where literally millions of bulbs push up through the soil in a patchwork of petals. On the weekend of April 27, the Dutch dress themselves in orange, take to the streets and clog the canals of the capital to celebrate King’s Day.
