We'll take the scenic route to the flower gardens, passing by the tiny 800-year-old town of 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 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 held its first open-air flower exhibition back in 1949 and has expanded annually to the delight of its international visitors. 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, covering a massive 80 acres of land and home to approximately 7 million tulips and daffodils that are in bloom during this special time. We'll 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 take time for lunch at the gardens (additional cost), where you may choose to dine at any of the four restaurants located on the grounds.
