Elm trees have been an integral part of Amsterdam’s cityscape for centuries, which is why the season when they throw their seeds “as natural confetti all over the city” is a great cause for celebration! Follow the recommended route to enjoy this magical beauty at your own pace or join one of the events planned for this year’s edition (including a free tour with a guide!).

IJ Hallen Flea Market

22-23 April

IJ Hallen is the biggest and the most extraordinary flea market in Europe that sells all kinds of things! Stock up on second-hand clothes and shoes. ‘Dig up’ a vintage bag or an antique lamp that costs less than a cup of coffee. Find everything you’re looking for and even more!

Finally, don’t forget about Keukenhof Gardens open until May 21st and the Amsterdam Tulp Festival taking place in the Dutch capital until May 14th… or as long as the flowers are blooming.
