    Our program

    Tulp Festival Amsterdam blossoms each year in the capital for the whole month of April. Hundreds of thousands of tulips brighten the springtime streets of the city.

    Once a year around April, the garden of the 17th-century Willet-Holthuysen House is blooming with, among others, historic tulips. Tulips that actually come from the time of the Willet-Holthuysen couple. As part of the 10th anniversary of Tulp Festival, a mini-expo has been created in Studio Panorama: Under the Tulip's Spell.

    Tulp Festival Huis Willet-Holthuysen

    Historical tulips

    The early eighteenth-century garden designs of French architect Daniel Marot served as inspiration for the current garden. The graceful symmetrical patterns and trimmed hedges and trees allude to the Baroque gardens for canal houses. Today it is one of the few formal gardens in downtown Amsterdam. The flowering period is from late March to mid-May.

    Again this year, historical tulips from the Willet-Holthuysen era can be seen: 'Bleu Aimable' (1906) fragrant blue, 'Princess Elisabeth' (1898) red/white flamed, 'Isulinde' (1915) purple/white flamed, 'Je maintiendrai' (1863) pink with yellow border, 'Simon Bolivar' (1880) orange and 'Duchesse de Parma' (1820) red with yellow.

    During Tulp Festival in April, you get 50% off your admission ticket for the entire house including the garden. Use the promo code Tulip24. The promo code is valid in April only.
