Hartelijk Welkom in Amsterdam Dames en Heren (“Welcome to Amsterdam Ladies and Gentlemen!“)
As a flight attendant with family ties to The Netherlands, it’s often you’ll find me walking and biking around the incredible city of Amsterdam. And while anyone can tell you stories about the famous wooden shoes, old world windmills, delicious Old Amsterdam cheeses and Dutch charm, I’d like to share a few of my off the beaten path favorites to eat, try, and enjoy during your next trip.
My favorite time to visit is during the spring, the prettiest time of year to explore Amsterdam and the town of Lisse, a short distance away. Here you’ll find my all-time favorite site, the world famous Keukenhof Gardens, which boasts beautiful tulips and bulb flower gardens. Peak bloom time is from mid-to-late April.
