HOLLAND TULIP FIELDS

The history of Dutch Tulips is amazing. Until today, the dutch tulips remain one of the brightest associations when it comes to describing Holland’s top attractions. The biggest tulip fields in Holland can be found in the Keukenhof tulip gardens.

Keukenhof tulip gardens have been an exciting destination for visitors from all over the world since 1949. Keukenhof’s magnificent display of color, created by more than 7 million tulips and other bulbs in bloom, gives you that springtime feeling and lifts your spirits. Part of the park has been redesigned in 2005. Surprising and inspiring – brimming with ideas, trends and features that you can apply in your own garden. It’s an experience you will never forget. Keukenhof is for young and old, gardening enthusiasts and people who just want a pleasant day out. More and more people are looking for fun and a pleasant atmosphere in a magnificent park setting. A holiday in which they can take the most beautiful photos.

The area now occupied by Keukenhof was covered in forests and unspoiled sand dunes in the 15th century, when the land belonged to Jacoba van Beieren. People hunted here and came to gather herbs for the castle kitchen, which explains how the area got its name. Keukenhof can be translated as kitchen garden. Around 1830, the landscape architect Zocher was invited to design a garden. He was inspired by the English style of landscaping and he designed the basis for the present park.

Isn't this where Silsila song was shot?

I have been to Amsterdam during their annual flower festival (forgot the name of the festival). It was very nice to watch the procession where various cars were decorated with flowers!

Wow, that is a lot of Tulips and I liked all the design layout, Tulips are a very pretty flower. The town here in Michigan is named Holland, it was settled by the Dutch and every year they have a Tulip Festival and people from all over the world come and visit. Thank you for sharing this with us and thanks for coming by.
