Organizers of the National Tulip Day of the Netherlands are the tulip grower, who also provide the tulips. This is a logistical masterpiece, because the bulbous flowers must be driven so that they bloom exactly on Tulip Day. In black boxes, where they grow up in the greenhouse, they stand on the Dam, the square in front of the Royal Palace.
After the opening at 1 pm, the onlookers will pour into the sea of flowers, take photos and put together a bouquet - 20 tulips per person are allowed, so that the Tulip Sea reaches out to more than 10,000 expected guests. On January 21st, not only the square in front of the palace, but all of Amsterdam will flourish, because everywhere in the city you see people carrying their bouquets home.
