The Hague - It will be a colourful thank-you at the start of spring and the renovation of Scheveningen's boulevard. With spring approaching, the entrepreneurs of Kurhausplein, the central part on the boulevard and Palace Promenade are holding a bright action: three picking gardens with more than 25,000 tulips. 

Visitors can pick a bunch of tulips in bright colours at Scheveningen on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 February between 11am and 4pm (note: gone = gone). The three tulip picking gardens can be found on the city and sea side of the Kurhaus and in the Palace Promenade.

Spring break

To participate, visitors need a voucher, which they get when spending 10 euros or more at restaurants and retailers at Scheveningen Bad. Vouchers will be issued during the spring break weekend (Saturday 24 February and Sunday 25 February) while stocks last. A list of participating businesses can be found at buitengewoonscheveningen.nl/tulips.

Extra activities

The tulip campaign is an initiative of the Buitengewoon Scheveningen Foundation, which runs the programme at Scheveningen in cooperation with local entrepreneurs and the municipality of The Hague. During the renovation of the boulevard, they will also provide extra activities so that the seaside resort remains an attractive destination for visitors from home and abroad.

Spring souvenir

"The entrepreneurs are looking forward to welcoming their (regular) visitors again during spring break and are happy to give a nice spring memento as a thank you for their visit,'' said Charlotte Los, from the foundation.
