What to expect at Keukenhof Tulip Gardens

Tulip Garden – known as the garden of Europe, is one of the most visited places in Amsterdam. To me, it was a unique and unforgettable experience. The 32-hectare park was filled with blooming flower bulbs planted by hand last Autumn to bloom in spring, with over 800 tulip varieties.

If you don’t have the time to go to the Netherlands, the Keukenhof Gardens is enough to fill your delight. The scent of hyacinths, tulips, and daffodils is one of the most memorable scents. It is found between Amsterdam and The Hague.
