Let's go to the Cherry Blossom Festival in Amsterdamse Bos with our family and friends and have a picnic!

When spring springs, the cherry blossom trees in the Amsterdamse Bos burst into spectacular colour. It's the perfect reason to head along and join in the festivities of the annual Cherry Blossom Festival.

Blooming traditionsThe Japanese Sakura (Cherry Blossom Festival) celebration marks the coming of spring. It’s traditionally celebrated by picnicking with family and friends under the blossoming cherry trees. Flowers – and nature in general – are particularly symbolic throughout Japanese culture, and the cherry blossom represents both a new beginning and the fragility of life.

The location of the trees is known as Bloesempark (Blossom Park), located in the south-east of the Amsterdamse Bos, between Burgemeester A. Colijnweg and the pond that’s known as De Poel. A small map of the area can be seen here. At the time of planting, each tree was given a name: 200 have Japanese women’s names, while the remainder have Dutch women’s names.
