Tulip Festival 15 April Noordoostpolder, the Netherlands The longest tulip route the Netherlands has to offer can be found in the province of Flevoland, in the Noordoostpolder to be exact. It is the ideal way to combine two Dutch things: a bike ride and hundreds of acres of tulips and windmills as far as the eye can see. The month of April is the great way to discover the stunning landscape during the traditional Tulip Festival. www.vvv.nl

A taste of Friesland 15-17 and 22-24 April Various locations in Friesland, the Netherlands During these two weekends, the province of Friesland will be filled with typically Frisian activities. Try Skûtsjesilen, see a Friesian horse show, walk along with a torch parade and browse the outdoor markets full of antiques and curiosa. All of this will happen in Friesland’s magnificent surroundings, a great setting for hiking, cycling and boating trips. proevenaan.friesland.nl

National Museum Weekend 16 – 24 April The Netherlands Don’t we all love a bargain? The Dutch certainly do, but they love it even more when something is for free. To satiate that need with cultural riches, the National Museum Weekend is an ideal solution for those who want to enjoy culture for free. Almost all museums in Holland will open their doors to the public for free, for tourists and as well as the thrifty Dutch. www.nationalemuseumweek.nl
