The tulip originated in Turkey. The tulip bulb reached The Netherlands at the end of the 16th century. The flower and bulb were thought to be so special that a lively trade arose quite quickly. In 1634 there was one single bulb that was so expensive, a whole canal side house in Amsterdam could be bought with the money worth it. In 1637 the government took the speculation in hand and the bulbs dropped in price drastically. The bulb and flower became "normal". The cycle route leads through vast fields of tulips. You will of course also visit the world famous, 32 hectares’ park The Keukenhof, where you can admire the wonderful colourful fields with flowering bulbs in peace and quiet.
