About Keukenhof

If there is one place where you can begin your nation-wide exploration journey, then it would have to be the Garden of Europe or the Keukenhof. There is a reason why this is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country. A leisurely stroll in this beautiful flower garden will teleport you to a different world altogether! Travel to the Keukenhof to have the most unforgettable experience of your life.

Located in Lisse, South Holland, the Keukenhof has a wide array of spring flowering bulbs. There are 7 million flower bulbs in this 32-hectare wide garden area. No wonder, it is one of the largest flower gardens in the world! Every year, the flower garden opens its door to thousands and thousands of tourists, admirers, and families during the spring season. They organize astounding flower shows, exhibitions, and events for all to enjoy. Some of them include the Tulip mania exhibition, the Beatrix flower show, the Mill whisper boat picnic area, or the Willem-Alexander flower show. The Keukenhof has gone one step ahead and especially arranged various fun games for children. Some of the games include a treasure hunt and a maze. Young children can have a blast in the petting farm or just run around in the playground. Don’t forget to plan your entire day in advance so that you can enjoy a fun family outing without missing out on any of the events. There is so much to do here.
