Take in some greenery in Amsterdam

Take in some greenery in Amsterdam
If you're a fan of the outside world and like travelling then the chances are that you've already popped over to Holland to see what's on offer, but why not book into an Amsterdam hostel and go and see the Keukenhof Gardens.

It's not just for those who were born with green fingers - even those who don't necessarily like to go out in their own garden will enjoy this experience.

There are plenty of activities to take in and I'm not the only one who thinks you should visit.

Tom Wuckovich, writing for Tampa Bay Online, believes the centre should not be missed by anyone that is travelling to Holland and he added: "All that it features can never be fully appreciated in one day."

People who decide to take in the gardens can see plenty of that iconic Netherlands flower – the tulip – although there are other rare plants around.

And the centre itself reckons that it can inspire people to use flower bulbs in their own garden at home after gazing in "admiration" at what it has on offer.

There are seven areas of greenery at the venue and each one is made up of trees, shrubs and hedges so you're not likely to run out of things to look at.

If you want to visit Amsterdam later this year then why not go in October and combine your trip with the National Flower Bulb Market 2010 at Keukenhof Gardens. It takes place between the 15th and 17th of the month and, besides plants, there will also be gardeners on hand to give tips and advice.
