"Keukenhof" means kitchen garden.
The current site originally provided herbs and vegetables to the local palace kitchens in the 15th Century.
Strolling through the garden, it is easy to comprehend how the tulip came to dominate the lives of so many Dutch people hundreds of years ago. The national emblem of the Netherlands, the tulip has long been synonymous with Holland and was originally introduced in the 1590's.
Tulip mania quickly followed with the crazy selling of tulip bulbs for as much as the price of a house, until the market collapsed in 1637.
However it is not only the tulip that the Keukenhof celebrates. All bulbous plants are showcased here as well as perennials.
The Making of Keukenhof
One of the most visited sites in the spring is the world famous showcase of flowers: Keukenhof.
Our tour guests are always impressed by seeing the abundant richness of beautiful flower beds with thousands of tulips, daffodils, lillies, hyacinths, blue grapes, fritillaria, anenomes, and much more; the in-house flowershows with gerbarias, gardinias, roses and orchids; ponds and lovely projected walking paths.
In 2018 the Keukenhof Garden is open from
March 22- May 13
