Holland

Holland started out as a fishers village in 1125 when fishermen built huts along the mouth of the Amstel river, the river which would give present day Amsterdam its name.

The tulips, which brighten the Dutch countryside so famously each springtime, were first brought there by herbalist Carolus Clusius in 1593 who planted imported bulbs from Turkey in the Hortus Botanicus (Botanical Garden) in Leiden.

Every spring, approximately 1.5 million tourists from all over the world visit the blooming bulb fields of Holland.
