Keukenhof tulip gardens
There are over 7 million bulbs in bloom every spring at Keukenhof, with over 800 varieties of tulips. This year, the gardens are open from the 23rd of March 2017 up until the 21st of May, so you have plenty of time to catch the tulips in all their glory. Tulips aren’t the only flowers on show here: there are also hyacinths, daffodils, orchids, roses, irises, lillies and many more.
Each year, the gardens have a new theme, and this year it’s Dutch Design. Inspired by designers such as Mondriaan and Rietveld, the arrangements are modern and innovative. Make sure you check out the Mondriaan Garden, which has promised to be a great attraction for international audiences.
The children will not be short on entertainment during their stay, with a maze, a playground, treasure hunts and even a petting zoo. After a day spent surrounded by a sea of colour, why not take them on an educational tour of the surrounding windmills.
Plan your trip to the Netherlands
Situated in between the Hague and Amsterdam, Keukenhof is centrally located and nearby many attractions in the area.
