Experience It! Keukenhof – which means “kitchen garden” in Dutch and also called the “Garden of Europe” – is one of the world’s largest flower gardens. Situated on what were once 15th-century royal hunting grounds, the current park was envisioned by the local mayor and opened in 1949 as a place for growers to show off their dazzling array of hybrid flowers. Each year, approximately 7 million flower bulbs are planted and grow on the grounds of this 80-acre park. Keukenhof is located in South Holland in the small town of Lisse, south of Haarlem and southwest of Amsterdam. Famous for its meandering lanes, canals, sculpted garden rows and seemingly endless array of starbursts of floral colors, a visit to the park is a once-in-a-lifetime attraction that draws more than 30 million visitors each year. The best time to view the tulips is from the end of March through early May, depending upon the weather.
