Keukenhof Gardens is a 79-acre collection of gardens in Lisse, South Holland, Netherlands. Seven million bulbs such as crocuses, daffodils, hyacinths and tulips are planted each year. The gardens are a part of the present day Keukenhof Park.
The gardens were established in 1949 by Mayor Lisse as a way for flower growers to showcase their hybrid flowers. The Keukenhof castle dates back to the 15th century, but the park didn’t open to the public until 1950. The park is open year-round; however, the gardens are open only during Mid-March through Mid-May. Visitors can view updated flowering reports on Keukenhof’s website.
Visitors are not allowed to walk through the bulb fields; however, they are allowed to take photographs.Places nearby:
