From the end of March every year, when most countries in Europe are just beginning to have green grass and green grass, the fragrance of flowers in the fields and streets of the Netherlands and the towns and courtyards in the Netherlands has already filled the air. Have you been unable to hold back your restless heart, let’s walk into the spring of the Netherlands with hi European Life Travel Experience Museum!
Keukenhof Park – No visit to Keukenhof means no visit to the Netherlands
In the 15th century, Keukenhof was a hunting ground for a countess. The garden was named after the herbs and vegetables needed for the noble kitchen. It covers an area of 33 hectares and is the largest tulip garden in the world. The prototype of the park was designed by German landscape gardeners Zocher and his son in 1840, but the overall landscape design is mainly in English style. Some of the trees planted at that time are still growing in the park. After more than 400 years, it is ancient and distant.
According to the park’s official website, about 7 million bulbs including hyacinths, daffodils, etc. are planted in the park. The protagonist tulip alone has about 800 varieties. There are also the best gardeners in the world, and the variety, quantity, quality and arrangement of tulips are the best in the world. The park is open to the public from late March to mid-May every year due to the climatic flowering period. During the Flower Show, many related activities are also arranged, including workshops on gardening and flower arrangement, and exhibitions on various themes.
Walking into the Keukenhof Spring Park, you will be “dyed” by the flowers that bloom everywhere. The gorgeous and colorful tulips are spread like brocade in the forest, on the grass, and beside the small lake, so beautiful that no one dares to approach. The park is divided into 7 parts by waterways, connected by a 15-kilometer visiting trail.
In addition to the carefully arranged flower beds, the elements that make up this dreamy promenade also include various classical or modern sculptures, as well as gurgling streams and countless towering rare giant trees. Strolling here, the blossoming tulip flowers are like wine glasses, big and bright, golden, pink, dark blue, silver white… dizzying, everything becomes unreal as you stretch forward.
