National Tulip Day in Amsterdam: it’s time for tulips!

Every year on the 3rd Saturday in January people in the Netherlands celebrate National Tulip Day. Amsterdam’s Dam Square
(in 2023 Museum Square) turns into a huge tulip garden filled with flowers. Everyone is invited to come and pick a bouquet!

In 2023 National Tulip Day in Amsterdam will be celebrated on Saturday 21 January 2023. Please not: this year it will take place on the Museum Square (NOT Dam Square, like before).

Dutch tulips. One L O V E. Do you agree?

National Tulip Day has been celebrated at Dam Square since 2012. On this day the tulip season officially starts. It’s #tijdvoortulpen!



So much fun for old and young!





You might have noticed that visitors are picking flowers with the bulbs. Don’t worry! This is how it’s supposed to be. The bulb has already used all its power on the tulip, so it won’t flower again.




It was a great flower day in Amsterdam! Are you also planning to see the Dutch tulips this season? In 2023 the Keukenhof gardens are open from 23 March untill 14 May. The Flower Parade Bloemencorso Bollenstreek will take place on 22 – 23 April 2023. We hope to see you there!

Our special thanks to Sandra Balk from Creatizz – Promotie Sierteelt for being our guide to the world of Dutch flowers and Kristina Kutena, a professional photographer in Amsterdam for the amazing photo moments!
