As the world’s largest flower garden, the Keukenhof Gardens are among the must-see places when traveling to the Netherlands. Located in Amsterdam, the fields are completely filled with vibrant flowers in a variety of types. Tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, and other spring bulbs and towering trees are among the approximate seven million flower bulbs that are planted in the park each year.
Keukenhof Gardens are also a promotion for the Dutch flower industry and is known as one of Holland’s top attractions because it is one of the most visited. Tourists and regulars can experience the remarkable landscape for themselves by taking a tour. The seasonal gardens are open for visitors for a short eight weeks when the flowers are in their fullest bloom. This window occurs during the springtime, as it begins during the last week in March and ends around mid-May. Tours are done on a half-day basis, taking place twice daily with one in the morning and another in the afternoon. All tours are followed by three hours of free time to explore the gardens for yourself. This unforgettable seasonal display is wildly popular and is likely to sell out. Tickets can be purchased online at affiliated websites with prices starting at about $62.84 USD.
If you’re looking for a unique experience that will give you appreciation for the beautiful world around you, look no further than the Keukenhof Gardens. Even the scenic drive through the Dutch countryside will leave you speechless as you pass fields of infinite rows of flowering tulips. These gardens are just another reason (that you probably didn’t even need) to pack up your bags and travel to the Netherlands ASAP.
