This is one of the world’s largest flower gardens, opened only from mid March to mid May. Every year, more than 7 million flower bulbs are planted in this park.


Keukenhof is the largest bulb flower garden park in the world, set in 32 hectares and originally opened in 1949. It is located in the small town of Lisse about 25km south-west of Amsterdam.


Keukenhof is located in South Holland in the small town of Lisse, south of Haarlem and southwest of Amsterdam. It is accessible by bus from the train stations of Haarlem, Leiden and Schiphol or with a direct transfer from Amsterdam City Center. Keukenhof is located in an area called the “Dune and Bulb Region” (Duin- en Bollenstreek).

In addition to the huge flower garden, the Keukenhof is also the largest statue garden of the Netherlands. You can admire many statues made by national and international artist.


Keukenhof in the Netherlands claims to be the world’s largest flower park. Each year, Keukenhof is open only two months in spring each year to show off the best of Dutch tulips, crocuses, narcissus (daffodils), and other bulb flowers.


The gardens are beautifully landscaped and contain some 7 million flowers – all hand planted – including many rare varieties of tulips and a fine collection of orchids.


The best time to visit Keukenhof depends on the weather but mid-April is usually the most reliable for tulips.  The garden is usually quieter early morning or late afternoon than around lunch time.


Spring flowers are a product by nature, the weather has got a big influence on it. When the weather is cold the tulips are growing much slower than when the weather is warm. A cold winter and springtime will cause that the flowers are blossoming later than normal. A warm winter and springtime causes the opposite.


Keukenhof is  one big party for childeren. Keukenhof garden is a great day out for the whole family.


Gardens and parks are a wonderful example of how a man , in close connection with nature.  Some of them are so beautiful that , I can call today’s miracles of the world.
