The best time to visit the Netherlands is during Spring and Autumn. The country experiences a temperate climate, with relatively mild summers and moderately cold winters. The temperatures tend to rise, the further south in the country you go. Spring and Fall offer incredibly pleasant weather conditions with the added advantage of being a part of the Shoulder season. The lack of tourist crowds allows you to explore the country at leisure and take part in plenty of activities. The period from mid-March to mid-May is the best time to see the country’s world-famous tulips in full bloom. Summer is the most crowded and you are bound to run into a huge number of tourists wherever you go. Apart from the seasons, there are plenty of events that happen throughout the country over the course of a year. Make sure to book in advance if you are planning to attend any event.
