Tulips at Vondelpark this summer

For all tulip lovers who are traveling this summer ... from the 4th of july until the 7th of september there will be a tulip island at the Vondelpark. The tulip are specially prepared to bloom during summer time (aka ice tulips). During one hour you will learn all about the growing and blooming of the tulips and you can pick your own tulips. Only 300 people per day are allowed to go on tulip island and the entrance fee will be 12,50 euro. See nu.nl/ondernemen/3767840/tulpenondernemer-st… for more information. (translate.google.com for translation)

There isn't any information yet about where to get tickets or the opening times.

Thank you for a great info! I'll be in Amstrdam in July, I love tulips, I have never properly visited Vondelpark, so that is definitely a place for me visit now. Just have to found out closer to July how to get the tickets "to tulips".

Based on the website photos, it looks like the "island" will be where they have the Pavilion where everyone seems to get wedding photos taken. It is very, very small. For those who can't or won't get tickets, you'll have a good view from the walking path next to the small footbridge for free. Also, it is right next to the Openlucht Theatre which offers free music and culture performances in the summertime. Let's hope for good summer weather this year!

Well, the Dutch in the website in fact sounds like it comes from translate.google.com

Strange!

Wow 12,50 euro? Compared to the ticket price of the Keukenhof (where you can spend hours) it sounds a bit too much for me. I'll wait till next springtime to see tulips again ;-)

Think of it like a charity. All the proceeds go into the upkeep and development of the Vondelpark.
