Tulips Alternative – Hyacinths

If you’re travelling to Amsterdam in early April and are worried you’ll miss the tulips at their best, worry not!

There are also plenty of hyacinth fields and these bloom a couple of weeks earlier. They’re just as spectacular as tulip fields, but have the added bonus of giving you an aromatherapy bath – hyacinths have a far stronger scent than tulips.
