Attention all nature lovers and green thumbs! Come join us for an unforgettable day trip to the world’s largest flower garden, Keukenhof Flower Gardens, (also known as the Garden of Europe) for their extraordinary annual flower show. This event is only open for 8 weeks out of the entire year usually the last week in March to mid-May. So if you’re here during this period, don’t miss the opportunity!
On the way to the flower gardens we will take the scenic route passing by a tiny 800 year old town called Lisse, which is the “center of the flower growing region”. We’ll then continue through the spectacular Dutch Flower Fields that are in colorful springtime bloom at this time of the year.
Once we arrive at the gardens, you'll be able to wander along the peaceful paths in this magnificent park setting, enjoying the gorgeous landscape architecture and pleasant floral aroma! Keukenhof Gardens had its first open air flower exhibition back in 1949 and has expanded, pleasing its international visitors ever since. Historically, it was where people came to gather herbs for the castle’s kitchen, which is where the name Keukenhof or “kitchen garden” comes from.
Today, Keukenhof is the world’s largest bulb-flower garden and covers a massive 80 acres of land, home to approximately 7 million tulips and daffodils that are in bloom during this special time. The gardens are sure to uplift spirits and inspire, maybe even giving you ideas to incorporate into your garden back home! We will also visit the impressive greenhouses (nearly 54,000 square feet) and view the indoor exhibitions and demonstrations. Claimed as the “most photographed place on Earth”, you’re sure to return home with spectacular shots!
We’ll have time to pause for lunch at the gardens and you may choose to dine at any of the four restaurants located on the grounds.
