Go green in Amsterdam
This annual event - which sees around 25 grounds open to the public - takes place from June 18th up until the 20th and I reckon you'd be mad to miss out on such a spectacle.
People can take a glimpse and be nice and nosy in the green areas behind an array of Dutch stately homes between Brouwersgracht and the Amstel River which is a sight to behold in itself.
Also, some are only accessible through the houses so you get the chance to be extra inquisitive, which might be extremely pleasing for some people my girlfriend for one would love this opportunity to go snooping around, but she won't thank me for telling you this!
The venues are different each year so if you visited in 2009 and are planning another trip this time then don't worry about seeing the exact same places.
But one of the best features about this experience is that with your ticket there is also the admission for a boat ride included, which will take to around to all the areas that the grounds are in. So it is great for the lazy people too!
Other green attractions in the city that people might like to check out include the Keukenhof Gardens which has so much to see it is as though it cannot all be looked at in one day, according to Tom Wuckovich, writing for Tampa Bay Online.
