See Amsterdam in a new perspective during the Spring Snow Festival, celebrating the treelined canals of Amsterdam!
Elm trees have defined Amsterdam’s cityscape for years. No other city in the world can call itself the elm capital! Over 75,000 elms wrap the beautiful Amsterdam canals in a green cloak, bringing nature back to the city's heart & releasing an annual festive shower of swirling elm seeds, known locally as ‘spring snow’.
Follow the elm route on foot or by bicycle and discover the city's neighbourhoods. This 8km route takes you from the elm arboretum in Amsterdam North (near the EYE museum, a short ferry ride away from Yays Zoutkeetsgracht and Bickersgracht) through the city's Eastern part to one of the world's oldest botanical gardens: The Hortus Botanicus. This beautiful alternative walk in the city gives residents and visitors a new perspective on Amsterdam: the city of trees.

The spring snow festival is set to return to the city, dates for 2019 to be confirmed
