When to Visit

For a Netherlands holiday, the best period is usually from mid-April to October. This period offers comfortable temperatures and a plethora of activities, such as the tulip season from mid-April till the first week of May.

However, the Netherlands shows a different, festive side in winter, especially as you get closer to Christmas. Despite the colder temperatures, winter is worth considering for budget-conscious travellers, as you may strike lucky with reduced holiday prices.
