Easter 2008 turns out to be the coldest Easter in more than 40 years.
Amsterdam is seeing a lot of snow these days, and temperatures are below zero in the night.
Easter 2008 is the coldest Easter since 1964.
Holland has about 10% less touristic visitors this Easter weekend, partly because of the weather. A lot of last-minute visitors decide to stay home or go elsewhere.
Another reason for the lower number of visitors is the expensive Euro, particularly for American but also for British visitors.
