And if you like cheese, especially Edam and Gouda, you might enjoy a trip to a museum dedicated to it in Alkmaar! There’s a chance to meet clogmakers too, who use traditional methods to make the comfortable wooden footwear.

April is a perfect time to visit the magnificent Keukenhof Garden, the largest flower gardens in the world, with over 7 million bulbs (not just tulips) planted each year in 79 acres. Feast your eyes on a magical array of colours in a peaceful setting, with attractive trees too, creating an enchanting environment.
