Keukenhof Gardens

6 Comments Amsterdam

We’re off to Amsterdam tomorrow morning. Yeay! Unfortunately it seems like there will be some rain over the weekend but hopefully it won’t be too bad. At least the forecast predicts the temperatures to be around 18 degrees Celsius which would be a nice change.

The Netherlands are famous for its tulips and I’ve found that Keukenhof Gardens is a very good place to go if you want a look up close, especially during this time of the year. More than 7 million tulips, daffodils and hyacinths are supposedly in full bloom in the garden right now. If you, like us, stay in Amsterdam apparently the fastest and easiest way to go there is by booking a half day tour with either Lindbergh or Keytours. That’s definitely something I would like to do, we’ll see if I’ll get someone to join me. 🙂

    Hi there, My wife, Jean, and I spent a couple of days at Keukenhof Gardens, near Lisse. We always knew that The Netherlands (Holland) was famous for its tulips. As gardeners, seeing the gardens at Keukenhof, just simply took our breath away! It was amazing. Without a doubt, Keukenhof Gardens is the world’s biggest outdoor gardens.

    While in Holland, Jean and I also spent a day at the village of Zaanse Schans where we got to see their large collection of windmills. For us, a trip to Holland just wouldn’t have been complete without seeing windmills in action. If anyone would like to check out the variety of windmills that we saw, they are at: http://frametoframe.ca/photo-essay-windmills-holland
