As the time is approaching for the seasonal tulips to blossom in the Netherlands, the Conservatorium hotel is welcoming guests again this year to immerse themselves in this colourful traditional and see the beautiful tulips at the hotel. Amsterdam’s leading luxury lifestyle palace, located in the heart of the city, will be dressed with over 1,000 of its bespoke tulips in celebration of the annual Tulip Festival. Last year, in celebration of its 5th year anniversary, Conservatorium revealed its very own tulip variety that was grown on the estate and will be on display throughout the hotel in 2018.
In honour of the country’s national flower, the Conservatorium hotel will be offering guests a unique package to fully explore the flower festivities. The 'Tulips in Bloom' package includes:
- A helicopter flight on Saturday with extensive views over the vast multi-coloured tulip fields, flower parks and Dutch coast. The EC 120 helicopter can accommodate one pilot and four passengers and the flight is only available on Saturday.

With spring in full bloom after The Netherlands’ cold and frosty winter, in celebration of its 5th year anniversary Conservatorium has revealed its own variety of tulips that were grown on the estate for the first time in 2017. This year, Amsterdam’s leading luxury lifestyle palace, located in the heart of the city, will again be dressed with over 1,000 of its bespoke tulips in celebration of the annual Tulip Festival.
In addition to the Conservatorium's variety of tulip, we will serve our Tulip Cake in the Conservatorium Lounge.
Tulp Festival wants to bring back the tulip in the city streets of Amsterdam. Traditionally Amsterdam is connected to the legendary tulip; however, the tulip seems to have vanished from the streets. The aim is to plant eventually one tulip for each individual citizen of Amsterdam. This amounts to 800.000 tulips. This year, the third year, half a million tulips were planted in open soil and in pots. You can enjoy them between 31 March and 30 April, or as long as they are blooming.
