The famed Keukenhof Gardens in Holland were due to open on March 21, 2020, but alas, with the Coronavirus outbreak in Europe, they must remain closed. But, you can still marvel in their splendor with this quick tour of the beautiful walkways and wooded trails in the gardens with this colorful video.
What began as a humble kitchen garden and hunting grounds for a castle, has become Europe’s largest garden. Each fall the garden and fields are planted with 7 million flower bulbs from a consortium of 100 flower growers and exporters in Holland. And each year, the world comes to Holland to tour this magnificent display. Today the brilliant gardens attract over 1.5 million visitors.
To plan your visit in future years, it’s best to start planning well in advance for the spring bloom which takes places from late March through May. Here are some great resources for planning your trip to tour Holland’s Tulip Fields :
