It seems I can’t really help myself. Every year, I have to share at least one article about the cherry blossoms in Amsterdam. There is just something so irresistibly pretty about all those pastel pink petals! In previous years, I visited the iconic Kersenbloesempark in the Amsterdamse Bos, which is still one of my favourite places in the world to have a picnic.

Yesterday, however, I decided it was time for a change! I wanted to see the cherry blossoms at the Westerpark in Amsterdam instead, and went on a walk through the city. Although the typical April showers kept spoiling the sunshine, the temperatures were nice and warm. A few brave picnickers with umbrellas still decided to spend their Sunday afternoon underneath the blossoming trees. As always, my camera was waiting in my backpack to snap a few seasonal shots. Here is the result!

More About Spending Spring in the Netherlands:

I feel like after this article, I’ve pretty much become an expert on spending the spring season in the Netherlands. Let me know if you have any questions, I’ll be happy to answer them for you! One day, hopefully, I’ll be able to see the cherry blossoms in Japan! Preferably Kyoto, but I can’t really be picky (not with my ‘modest’ budget). For now, check out all the other info I’ve gathered over the years:
