Have you seen this wonder of the world?

The Netherlands is renowned for flowers. In spring time we have fields of neatly arranged colours which you can check out for free from your car or the train or maybe from above when you fly in from Finland and land at Schiphol. But what better way to get inspired for the coming year by visiting the Keukenhof, Hollands flowers at their finest.

More about the Keukenhof

The Keukenhof is located on the ground of a castle located next to Lisse, a town in The Netherlands. The name is derived from a dune, called the ‘Keuken Dune’. It started out as an exhibition to showcase the different flowers in the area, back in 1949. It is designed by the same landscape architects that made the Vondel Park, the most famous park in Amsterdam.

Flowers, flowers and more flowers!

There are over 7 million species of flowers in The Keukenhof. Tullips of course, daffodils, crocuses, hyacinths and lilies amongst others. You can take a stroll through the gardens, or take the silent boat for a little tour on the water. There are different pavilions which showcase different and new hybrids, species but also the public favourites from before.

Tourist information

Around 75 % of the visitors are tourists. It is the world’s biggest flower garden, so its clear to see why people want to see it. The temporary nature of the exhibition also adds to its mystery, the Keukenhof is opened for a limited amount of time. It opens the 22nd of March, and closes the 13th of May. You have the possibility to walk around 15 kilometres of well-groomed pathways. For children, there are different playgrounds to play in.

Take a tour

When you are finished in the Keukenhof, it is ideal to get cycle around and see the flowers in the wild, in the fields where they are grown for export purposes. The Keukenhof is open from 08.00 until 19.30 daily!

Spring Finnflor

Spring is here!

The 21st of march is the official start of the meteorological spring. Finally, after a long winter, we can awake from hibernation and start putting all the flowers in our house again. What is your favourite spring time bouquet or arrangement? We give you some daring combinations!

Daffodil

The birth flower of this month is daffodil. This bright and happy flower is literally the trumpet of spring, announcing this warmer time of the year. Why not combine this flower with blue anemones and dark red ranunculi? This bouquet which reminds us of the primary colours, is sure to put a smile on your face!

Beautiful Freesia

This lovely smelling and delicate freesia is also on this month’s calendar of blooms. The shape with multiple flowers works well in arrangements. Why not pair it with carnations and lysanthius in similar colours? This monochrome bouquet will look lovely in your store and is the promise of summer after spring!

Blossom

Another spring favourite, but then outside, is cherry or apple blossom. But these branches are eye catchers inside too! Their soft pink petals seem to blush with the arrival of spring. Pair with more white blooms to fully let them shine with their own power. Or maybe some light pink tulips to bring out the pinkish tones of the blossom branches!
