Virtual tours: Keukenhof is bringing its world-famous garden online
The Keukenhof is ready for spring, but, of course, due to the testing times we are experiencing, it won't be opening its gates to the public in spring 2020. You can still watch millions of multi-coloured flowers bloom in this beautiful and world-famous Dutch park as Keukenhof is bringing its floral brilliance online!
Expect to see dazzling Keukenhof footage online
Keukenhof has released a video (below) announcing that it plans to release more footage of the garden for flower fans all over the world, so nobody will be missing out on the striking and special flower garden. Keep an eye on the Keukenhof website, and get ready to watch millions of multi-coloured flowers bloom in this beautiful attraction!
From the authentic 19th-century windmill, to the gigantic flower bulb mosaic, covering an area of 250m2 and consisting of 50.000 tulips, grape hyacinths and crocuses, it's going to be spectacular.
One of the most visited attractions in the Netherlands
The Keukenhof, which in Dutch means "kitchen garden", has been around since the 15th century and covers 32 hectares. It became a public garden in 1950 and was an instant success, with over 236.000 visitors in its first year. Nowadays, the Keukenhof welcomes over a million visitors per year!
The Keukenhof is the international showcase for the flourishing Dutch floricultural sector, with a particular emphasis on flower bulbs: tulips, hyacinths, daffodils and crocuses. More than 100 flower companies display their living catalogue of various types of flora, with up to seven million spring-flowering bulbs.
As well as flowers, there are ponds and (being typically Dutch) canals and even an authentic Dutch windmill. The famous windmill was built in Groningen in 1892, and was used to pump water out of a polder. In 1957, the Holland-America Line purchased the then unused mill, tore it down and donated it to the Keukenhof, where it was rebuilt.
