Keukenhof


Flowers at their peak and the Keukenhof Gardens at Lisse both have short seasons, but if you're here in the spring, you'll never forget a visit to this park. It's a meandering 70-acre wooded green in the heart of the bulb-producing region, planted each fall by the major Dutch growers (each plants its own plot or establishes its own greenhouse display). Then, come spring, the bulbs burst forth and produce not hundreds of flowers, or even thousands, but millions (almost 8 million at last count) of tulips and narcissi, daffodils and hyacinths, bluebells, crocuses, lilies, amaryllis, and many others. The blaze of color is everywhere in the park and in the greenhouses, beside the brooks and shady ponds, along the paths and in the neighboring fields, in neat plots and helter-skelter on the lawns. Keukenhof Gardens claims to be the greatest flower show on earth - and it's Holland's annual spring gift to the world.
