Hello All! My husband and I will be traveling to the Netherlands for one week in mid-March, and will be based in an AirBnB in Amsterdam. It is cold where we live anyway, so the weather overall doesn't concern us. It had to be this particular week for life and work-related reasons, and we knew we would be too early for tulip season. However, I was hopeful that Keukenhof would be open for crocuses, daffodils, and indoor displays. Unfortunately, however, it looks like we will miss the opening by just a few days.
Though we will be based in Amsterdam, we plan to take at least two or three day trips to other cities around the country. We are leaning towards Delft for one, and will almost certainly visit Haarlem as well since it will be so close. We will not have a car and although we are willing to bike, I am a pretty weak biker in terms of skill and confidence. Can anyone recommend a city where we might be able to see some nice crocuses, daffodils, and other early flowers in mid-March? Or are we better off just not worrying about flowers and enjoying the food, drink, architecture, and museums? We are having a very mild winter in the states and already have crocuses in bloom in our yard in New England, but I realize Europe could be a completely different ballgame.
