I am planning to visit Europe, this will be my first time and I am travelling alone. Any suggestion for the best time? when it is not too crowded and nice weather (not too cold)? My first destination would be the Netherland.
Appreciate your advice. Thank you.
For the Netherlands, April is my favorite month, with the flower fields in full bloom. That's actually enough of a tourist attraction that it gets busy-ish because of it, but the rest of Europe will still be relatively quiet. May generally has better weather and is also still quiet.
Alternatively, late September / early October can be nice, too.
The third quarter of the month is one of the best seasons to visit Europe. October would be fine.
I prefer Spring rather than Autumn (Fall). The weather's warming up and there's a bit of a buzz in the air.
The window for Europe travel if you want warmer days is Mid May to Mid September. You'll still have some rain in parts but it's mainly dry and a good time to visit. Depends where you are but October can be cooler.
We had 4 months traveling round from June to September and traveled as far north to Lapland.
Thank you for your advice. Will be there in April then. God willing!
You could go there around summer sometime in March or May. Also, the later part of the year is also a great time to visit Europe. September to October has a really good weather.

For me April/May are really the most flexible months. Is when you can have the best combination of good weather, flowers and places are not crowded.

April, May and June
The weather is nice and you can avoid the crowds of tourists you would find in July/August.
I personally prefer October / November but April and May are great too.
