Normally tulips flower in the spring, but there is a garden in Amsterdam where you can pick your own tulips in July and August.
The Vondelpark in Amsterdam will be enriched with a new tourist attraction called Tulip Island, which is a garden where people can pick their own tulips. In July and August consumers can go through a real tulip experience, including a traditional auction clock on an island in the Vondelpark.
By using specially prepared ice-tulips, Tulip Island will be able to offer real tulips in the summer. "According to the Dutch Board of Tourism tulips are the No.1 classic, but unfortunately there are no tulips during the main tourist season", says founder Jorrit Koeman. We're playing in on the market demand with a tulip-picking garden from July 4th through September 7th in the Vondelpark Amsterdam. In addition, we'll provide the Tulip Island with music, dance and art.
