Keukenhof Gardens, Lisse

History

Tulips and Holland go together, and if tulips are on your mind, head to Keukenhof, arguably the biggest tulip garden in the world! A short distance away from Amsterdam lies Lisse where the Keukenhof gardens are located.

Viewing the beautiful gardens of colourful tulip fields, today its hard to imagine that Keukenhof started off as a kitchen garden sometime in the 15th century. Finally in the 20th century some of the Dutch flower cultivators got together and zeroed in on Lisse to showcase their flowers.

Lisse today is profusion of colour: daffodils, narcissi, orchids and of course tulips bloom in the 70 acre gardens.

Keukenhof has been landscaped well and contains Japanese gardens, sculptures and a sprinkling of windmills too for good effect.

Keukenhof is a kaleidoscope of colour and simply beautiful!

Best time to visit

Though Keukenhof can be visited any time of the year, it is `officially’ open only during the spring, from March to May as this is when the gardens are at their best.

Trivia

Known as the Garden of Eden, it is Europe's largest garden and very beautiful one at that!

Timing

Keukenhof Gardens are open 8 am to 7.30 pm daily during March to May.
