    Spring Carnival in the Westerpark

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Westerpark is home to a popular late winter/early spring carnival, with numerous games-of-chance and stomach-churning rides. Colors, movement and smiling people!

    As Holland is very flat, there is nothing to stop the rain and wind when it comes. It does give great sailing though. I belive many Dutch enjoy this in their freetime.

    the Dutch respect you, try and do the same in return. Respect the culture by not being loud and obnoxious. When a big football (soccer) match occurs avoid crazed hooligans.

    Tulips in Amsterdam

    by nyperose Written Jul 27, 2012

    I saw these wooden tulips in many souvenir shops in Amsterdam and I thought they were so nice.

    From far away you don't even see that they are not real.
