Tulp Festival connects city districts, businesses, residents and visitors. Garden designer, Saskia Albrecht, is the founder of Tulp Festival. It is her ambition to bring the tulip back to the streets of Amsterdam, her motto: ‘a tulip for every citizen of Amsterdam’. For every citizen also means a tulip from every citizen. School children, businesses, shop owners, hotels, museums and city districts plant bulbs in the Autumn; residents are encouraged to join in too and in this way help brighten up the Amsterdam streets. Tulp Festival sends you on a journey of discovery, every year there are new surprises waiting to be found and with the rapidly growing number of inhabitants (now approximately 850,000) many more tulip locations will surely be added in the future.
