The Keukenhof is the world’s largest flower garden and every year, about 7 million bulbs are planted. While tulips are a major attraction, the Keukenhof is also famous for its azaleas, daffodils, hydrangeas and cherry blossoms, as well as its indoor exhibitions which often feature impressive collections of orchids, lilies and other varieties.

The Keukenhof is a very popular tourist attraction so expect almost everything the Dutch are famous for: aside from the millions of tulips, there are the ubiquitous wooden clogs, windmills, traditional folk music, herring, pancakes (pannenkoek), mini-pancakes and gorgeous artwork and sculptures.

At Keukenhof, you’d think you were adrift on a sea of flowers. Divided across various gardens and pavilions, the tulips and other flowers number in the millions. Keukenhof has a different theme each year, meaning that it is never the same.

In summer, the garden of Keukenhof Castle is filled with 150 different types of flowering dahlias. At the end of August, this is celebrated with the Keukenhof Dahlia Days, where all kinds of activities can be experienced. Until mid-October, the dahlias provide an overwhelming display of color in the park.
