Keukenhof in bloom
If you've been following along on Instagram, you might know that I spent a couple of unforgivable days in Holland last year spring. I was invited by Visit Holland to visit the most impressive flower park ever - Keukenhof. With its 7 million spring-flowering bulbs, the festival is something you never ever will forget. The colorful display of flowers sticks like glue on your brain long after you're gone.
We first visited Keukenhof Castle in Lisse. Located right across the road from the park. The estate has more than 200 acres of woodland, meadows and a beautifully landscaped park with 18 monuments. See the first photo below, loved the 17th century decoration.
While at Keukenhof and to get a bit of freedom and space (the park has around 800,000 visitors a year) - I truly enjoyed renting a bike and to see the more wild tulip fields in the surrounding.
Let me know if you're planning a stay and I'll help you with more tips!
(The Keukenhof theme for 2015 will be Van Gogh.)
