Keukenhof

Originally a kitchen garden in the 15th century for the Teylingen Castle in Holland, the garden was redesigned by landscape architects in 1857 in an English landscape style.

In 1949, leading flower bulb growers and exporters had the idea to create a spring park and exhibit spring-flowering bulbs. The garden opened to the public in 1950 and soon became a world-famous tourist attraction.

This year it will be the 71th edition of Keukenhof and ‘A World of Colours’ is the theme.

Since the garden is closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, virtual tours are being offered online, like this one…
