I might have just found my happy place in Amsterdam! Whether it is called Jardin des Tulipes or not (I have just come up with this name), this little garden near the Rijksmuseum is the closest you can come to Paris in Amsterdam. Bring coffee, books, a pair of sunglasses for some shameless people watching, and lay back on a chair. You’ll instantly feel as if you are in Jardin de Luxembourg or perhaps in Jardin des Tuileries. Magical!
