The small Dutch town of Lisse is home to one of the most beautiful tulip fields in the world, the Keukenhof flower park.

More than 7 million flower bulbs are planted every year as part of the flower’s annual Tulips’ expo.

The spring flower garden features an assortment of vibrant colored tulips from deep shades like purple and maroon to pure white and yellow.

It’s truly a mesmerizing sight of color.

The musical road in the Netherlands that sings Frisian national anthem

There’s a road in the Netherlands that starts to sing the Frisian Folk Song when cars hit the right speed of 60 kph/40 mph limit.

The musical road resides in the village of Jelsum in the north part of Holland.

The structure of the strategically laid “rumble strips” was built in 2018 to celebrate the unique language and culture of the Friesland region. But the special ‘singing road’ also served as a warning to slow down speedy drivers.

However, the musical experience struck a chord (literally) with the locals who grew tired of hearing the notes 24 hours a day.

According to Dutch News, the €80,000 custom-built pavement markers were finally removed for driving (see what I did there) ‘psychological torture’.
