Netherlands: Keukenhof Garden – Kingdom of Millions of Flowers - VIDEO

Published: 26.8.2014
One of the most sought tourist spots in Europe is the second largest garden in the world. It is a place with the best smell that I have visited. It is an experience of a lifetime. Welcome to a beautiful garden of Keukenhof – several dozen of kilometers southwest from the Dutch capital.

Since mid-March to mid-May about seven million flowers blossom there. And we are situated in theNetherlands, most of them are tulips.

The garden was founded by a mayor of nearby town of Lisse in 1949. He intended to make it a place where growers from all around Europe would show their most beautiful flowers, and to boost tulip export. The Netherlands is the largest flower exporter in the world, and the garden grows the most of them. The intention was successful Keukenhof this year hundreds of thousands people will visit it once again and they will take away tulip bulbs available for purchase here.

Buses from Schiphol airport and train stops of Haarlem and Leiden stop right at the gate. Especially if you travel from Schiphol, be patient for there is about an hour long waitin in a line. Towards the en of April 2014 when I went there, we had to wait for about two hours. And it was Monday. The price of admission is 15 € (half for children to 11 years of age). The most favourable option is to buy a combined entrance that includes a bus ticket for 23 €.

So what is the actual experience? Well, the photos and video tell the story. There are thousands of beautiful smells that I couldn’t record. Of course, the garden is more beautiful than a camera can possibly capture.

Due to the fact that this year’s season was bit postponed, all tulips during my visit were out of bloom. I missed beautiful (yet bit kitsch) view of the landscape with dozens satiated colors. I recommend you to really schedule your visit so you would see to blossom everything. In case of normal winter, it should be towards the end of April.

I am falling with Netherlands more and more. During my third visit in this country, in April 2014, I was enchanted by Utrecht. It used to be the most important Dutch city south of Amsterdam. Its population of slightly more than 300,000, is perfectly suited to a group of cities that are not too small but not too big. If we add to this the fact that there is the largest university in the country, it is clear that it will be a quiet and pleasant city, which is on the other hand really alive.
