Court of the Netherlands 

The Court of the Netherlands (‘Hof van Nederland’) takes you back to an exciting moment in Dutch history: that of the rebellion against Alva and the First Free State Assembly in 1572. This is what laid the foundations for the Netherlands as we know it today: the Netherlands in which we can live in freedom. The experience is different from what most people are used to at Madurodam. It’s not a miniature structure – it’s a multi-sensory experience which takes approximately four minutes.

New attraction: New Amsterdam

In the immersive new attraction New Amsterdam, visitors discover New York’s Dutch roots. They will go back in time and experience the excitement of the 17th century just for a moment. They step on board the ship De Vergulde Bever (The Gilded Beaver) and sail from Amsterdam to New Amsterdam, the city that today is known as New York. The day starts out sunny but soon danger appears on the horizon. Will it all end well? In the city square in New Amsterdam, visitors will roll up their sleeves along with their family and friends to fire cannons.

Giant Tulips 

To honor the Dutch tulip, miniature park Madurodam created a set-up which makes the Holland holiday memory complete. The 17 replicas of the official – 200 years Kingdom of the Netherlands – tulip are 2,5 meters high and form a wood of tulips that acts as a colorfull and memorable photo-background. The new attraction is based on the fact that in Madurodam guests discover the stories of the Holland Icons.
